Whether you’re a landlord managing apartments or own a motel, chances are you have always had quite the love-hate relationship with your tenants. Whether it’s due to late payments or disagreeable natures, it’s always a hassle juggling the responsibilities as both the point of contact and the property owner.
While the dream is to find that one tenant that is the perfect match for you and your property, consider the thought that it is you who should be fostering a good working relationship between yourself and your renters.
Pampering your tenants may seem strange and counterproductive to some, but it does pay off in the end.
Caring for Tenants Creates Caring Tenants
The phrase “one good turn deserves another” is the principle behind providing extra care for your renters, and it may surprise you how a little pampering goes a long way in solving some of the most common problems with tenants today. The kinder you are to your tenants, the kinder they’ll be to you.
This isn’t restricted to simply being friendlier to you and more respectful of the rules you’ve set in place. The subtle pampering you do to your tenants creates more caring people who will treat your property as if it were their own.
This not only reduces the risk of unnecessary repairs from potentially destructive behaviour, but your tenants will actually go out of their way to maintain a rented living space and keep it in good condition.
Every landlord wants peace of mind with their tenants, and fortunately, it doesn’t require that much investment to pamper tenants and keep them happy. Simply having complete supplies in your motel or apartment is enough to make them regard your rented living space as their own.
Complete amenities are one thing that renters always look forward to when they’re browsing, and by securing this, you’ll find more people willing to apply to rent your property. There will also be fewer complaints once they’ve actually settled in.
Finally, always be sensitive to your tenant’s situation. Perhaps the reason why they’re a bit late with payment is due to some financial crisis they’re experiencing? By approaching them in a non-confrontational manner, they are more likely to hold their promise to pay the rent and won’t do it spitefully.
Pampering your tenants doesn’t require that much investment at all. Simply providing them with the complete necessities, as well as a dash of kindness, is more than enough to maintain a happy and respectful relationship.
