Congrats! You have successfully gotten a tenant for your property, and this is something you should celebrate because it is not easy going through all the process of getting a tenant for your property as it can be stressful. Although this is something you should celebrate about, your tenants will find it stressful, especially before moving. Many things will run through their minds making them worried.
As a landlord, you can make the moving process easy for them, and here are wonderful ideas of welcoming new tenants into your rental property.
- Clean the property thoroughly
You can help reduce the worry of your tenants when they move in newly to their new apartment by thoroughly cleaning the property. Having a plan ahead of time is vital to make the property clean.
- Compile a welcome package
One way to make new tenants feel at ease is by presenting a welcome package. This won’t cost you much, however, it will leave a long lasting impression on the mind of your new tenants. A welcome package can include several items like paper towel, toilet paper, scented candles, etc.
- Let them know where to park
One thing tenants would find annoying is if their parking lot is shared by others, or worse still, they don’t have a parking lot. Let them know on time if they will be parking on the streets or if they share parking lot.
- Give them other vital contacts
It is necessary that your tenants know who to contact for certain issues, so before they move in provide for them contact information that they need. Through a tenant welcome letter, they should know who to contact when it comes to parking, utilities, insurance and more.
- Provide the keys
Ensure that your tenants have all the keys they need when they finally move into your property. Provide keys to stores, garage, utility spots or other location they are entitled to access.
- Give them advice about the neighborhood
Another way to welcome your new tenant is by giving them friendly advice about the neighborhood, giving them few tips and advice to help them have their way around the area and where to get pizza and other things easily.
- Offer them moving day advice
When the day for your tenants to move in draws closer, they may be clueless on how to go about it. You can help them by providing useful tips on how to move. You might not know how useful this will be until you step into their shoes.
It is the joy of every landlord to see their rental property fully occupied, but you should also assist your tenants as they move because it is not an easy thing moving into a new apartment. The above information will go a long way to reduce their stress and welcome them to their new home. With this, you have started the tenant landlord relationship in the right step since you have helped them reduce the stress of moving.
