Tenants-OutdoorThe outdoor cleanliness and aesthetics of a home, apartment, or commercial building is just as crucial to the success of the sale as the inside. What does the property look like from the street or sidewalk? This is what tenants are noticing. Don’t let a misleading outside draw your business away. Ness Property Management Group is here to tell you what potential tenants are looking for and how you can deliver. There are a few key areas that tenants tend to focus on such as outdoor space, lighting, and recreational areas.

The indoor structure is important but in Southwest Florida, there is an increasing importance of outdoor amenities. Is your property’s space maintainable and functional? The outdoor area should be easily accessible, natural, and easily maintained. Outdoor space can be a crucial selling point for potential tenants. Covered outdoor space is always desirable and encourages outdoor activities, protection from environmental elements, and improves the overall outdoor space.

First impressions begin before your tenant even walks through the door. Make sure you give off a secure, clean impression that astounds.

The ultimate goal is to give potential tenants the chance to imagine themselves in the space. In order to achieve this, you will need to create an area that is attractive but vague enough for people to imagine their own furniture, styling, and their family in the space. Steps can be taken to create a cohesive and connected living space between the indoor and outdoor. Invest in sliding doors and/or paved walkways, keep outdoor grill clean and maintained, and mow the grass regularly to create a maintained lawn. Residents want a cohesive, comfortable outdoor space to entertain, play, and simply enjoying the Southwest Florida weather.
