When you decide to rent out your home you are entering a partnership. Whether its a luxury Shaughnessy rental house, North Vancouver townhouse for rent or a basement suite in your Dundarave rental house, you want the tenant to treat your home well.
Follow the golden rule that we teach our children, “treat others like you would want to be treated.”
Your half of the partnership is to provide a nice, clean Vancouver rental home that the tenant can quietly enjoy and can expect that any serious issues that arise, are dealt with in a swift and efficient manner.
Their half of the partnership is to pay you for this right to quietly enjoy your Vancouver rental home and to do their best to limit the amount of damage and wear and tear on the home. To be respectful of the same rights of the neighbours. People often hire local North Vancouver, West Vancouver or Vancouver Property Management companies to ensure that this relationship stays harmonious.
NEVER forget that a person that doesn’t like you is much more liable to treat your rental house worse than if they are happy, treated with respect and generally have feelings of goodwill towards you and your home.
To promote a cordial environment together, look for nice things that you can do for your tenants, so they never forget that you are looking after their best interests.
Tiny gestures like calling them to see if they are enjoying the home after they move in, include extra’s like bikes, kayaks, or tools if you are not using them and the tenants expressed interest.
Stand out from their previous landlords and help you create that valuable goodwill, that will ensure they do their best to safeguard your home like its their very own.
Your West Vancouver rental house, North Vancouver house for rent or Yaletown furnished rental apartment will be in much better hands
