Despite government efforts to stimulate the home buying market it appears “generation rent” is here to stay and growing monthly. According to a Yourmoney.com article the sector will grow by 1.1 million in the next six years while The English Housing Survey found that private renting has been growing by a staggering 17,500 households per month on average over the last 10 years.
So if you’re a property owner who is or wants to become a landlord you should do everything possible to make your rental unit more desirable to prospective tenants. First off, make it easy to clean and maintain. A small investment can go a long way to insure the condition of your property for years to come. Make sure your floors and cabinets are made of easy-to-clean, stain-resistant materials, and plan the layout of the unit in a way that makes tidiness an organic choice. One way to inspire tenants to be neat and organised is to install a unit with sliding wardrobe doors. Not only will you create more space to store all their belongings in, you’ll create an aesthetically-designed bedroom in tune with the trend for streamlined spaces and cleared surfaces. They bring a great advantage over standard wardrobes. Imagine the amount of additional space your tenants will have at their disposal when they slide those doors horizontally with one easy swoop!
