Get your Birstall home ready for the Leicester rental market

Would you want to rent a property if it was in need of a lot of TLC? We thought not! Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of top tips for making sure your Birstall property is ready to impress. A lot of these we’ve picked up from showing other potential tenants round properties and picked up on their reactions.

Deep Clean
Every room in your property should be sparkling! All the rooms need a thorough clean especially the bathroom and kitchen areas as these are the top areas tenants and home owners tend to pick up on dirt.
Little things like making sure to clean to toilet and wipe down the kitchen surfaces can make a big difference to your property. Make sure that you’ve also repaired anything minor as this may catch somebody’s eye. A tenant has the ability to be fussy, especially in such a competitive area as Birstall.

Clutter is just going to make your rooms look smaller, therefore reducing the value of your property in the eyes of the potential tenant. Despite decluttering, don’t take away the ‘personality’ of the room. You don’t want people to think you’re just renting an empty space!
Doing your utmost to make the inside of your property tidy, professional and neutral is important when prospective tenants are going to be visiting the property. No one is going to envisage how the property might be if it was theirs if you have children’s toys and family photographs littering the space.
