What Are Renters Really Searching for In A Rental Property?  

Do you own rentals in California or elsewhere in the United States? If so, you may have asked yourself the question “what do renters really want?” at least once during the time that you’ve owned rental properties

Thankfully, the answer to this question is simple, that’s why in this article we will provide you with more information regarding what renters are searching for in rental properties. 

Here’s What Today’s Renters are Searching For 

Location – The modern renter is searching for a property that’s in a great location near shops, stores, schools and close to their places of employment. 

Features – Like renters in years past, most renters in 2019 want the same features that they did 10 years ago including the right number of bedrooms, bathrooms, space, and amenities in the properties that they are renting. 

Communication – Since most people are communicating in multiple ways, today’s renters are too. This means that you should be able to offer potential renters’ multiple methods of communication including phone, text, email, and messenger. Besides these methods, you should also have a way for renters to get help after hours if they need it as well. 

Maintenance – Most renters in this day and age are busy so when it comes to things like maintenance, they would rather have someone maintaining their rental property for them so they can focus on living their lives. 

Security – This is by far one of the most important things that renters are looking for in a rental property. They want to know that they can come home to a safe rental property without having to look over their shoulder or be concerned about their safety.
