Renting out a property in India is an additional source of income for many. To ensure that your property gets the rent it deserves, maintain it well. A well-maintained property can be a positive to finding a tenant and the asking rent.

MakaanIQ lists few things that you should keep in mind before renting your property:

Ensure safety

It is important that no pre-installed equipment or appliance is defective. For instance, check that all the wiring is well-masked and no wire is left unmanned and check the gas connection for uninterrupted service. For this, you could hire professionals to do a thorough check and also, make the required repairs.

Plumbing

Before you lent the property, it is essential that you inspect all the showers and the taps are in working condition. Ensure that there are no leakages in the bathroom and if there are, call a professional plumber to fix them before the tenants move in.

Proficient electrical appliances

In case you are giving a semi- or fully-furnished property, then it is essential that all the appliances are in good condition. All the electrical appliances including toaster, microwave, kettle, washing machine, dishwasher etc. must be checked before the tenants move in. This will ensure that your tenants have a comfortable and convenient stay. Also, if the property is furnished it can get you higher rent.

Add value

If you need to add more value to your property, then you can just repaint your home. Another way is to add elegant lighting to your home making it more appealing to the tenants. You can also renovate your bathroom or kitchen adding more value to your property.

Create a list of inventories

Create a complete list of inventories, i.e. products that you are giving on rent along with the apartment space, before you rent out the house. In the list, write down the model number, serial number and also, record the colour, size and shape of the inventory.

Clean thoroughly

Clean your house thoroughly before renting out the property. This leaves a good impression on your tenants. Clean the windows, carpets, kitchen and bathroom tiles, and scrub the shower screen.
