As someone new to renting corporate homes, you might be wondering what you should do to get your space ready for tenants. Preparation is vital whether you’re renting out a home or an apartment for a short or long-term period. Guests expect the space to be at least as comfortable and clean as a hotel room.
The more you do to create the perfect environment in your corporate homes, the better stays will go. This can lead to more extended stays and recommendations that bring in new tenants.
Keep Things Clean
A guest should always show up to a home that is clean and organized. The kitchen and bathrooms should be especially spic and span. Make sure the beds are covered in soft, clean linens. If you prefer, you can have a housecleaner come in to ensure things are pristine when tenants show up.
On the other hand, you can do it on your own to save money. This also lets you make sure that things are done precisely to your liking.
Handle Any Safety Issues
Before a guest comes into one of your corporate homes, make sure nothing is hazardous in the space. Inspect the property and look for things like loose steps and exposed wiring that could use accidents and injuries. All these things should be taken care of before you start renting the space.
If anything could injure someone, take care of it. You don’t want to be the cause of a guest being injured.
Equip the Space
You want your corporate homes to be pleasing to guests. It’s also essential that you make their stays easy. This can help you get rave reviews and bring in repeat business. Some of the things you can provide include:
- Clean linens and towels
- Extra pillows and blankets
- Pots and pans, dishes, and silverware
- A teapot, coffeemaker, and toaster
- Cleaning supplies
- Sugar, butter, salt, and basic seasonings
- Standard toiletries
- A first-aid kit
- Smoke detectors
- A fire extinguisher
- Remotes for devices
- Trash can liners
- Mattress pads and pillow protectors
- Light bulbs.
In addition, guests will expect to have wireless Internet. Many will also choose corporate homes that have cable television or streaming services.
Leaving instructions and tips for your guests can also be a great idea. If you follow these steps, your guests will be happy and you can have peace of mind that things will go fine.
