How to Prepare Your Rental Properties for the Busy Season: A Guide for Fort Bragg Homeowners

Spring has started knocking at our door this week! With the onset of pollen season, new blooms and warmer weather comes PCS season for our military community. Whether you're a seasoned rental property owner or a newcomer to the game, it's important to make sure your rental property is in top shape and ready to attract new, qualified tenants in our busiest time of year!

Here are some tips to help you prepare your rental property for the busy season and make sure you're ready to tackle the influx of incoming and outgoing residents:

Seasonal Maintenance: The first step in preparing your rental property for the busy season is to make sure it's in great condition and ready to welcome new tenants. Conduct a thorough inspection of the property, from top to bottom, and make any necessary repairs or upgrades. This includes fixing any leaks, checking smoke detectors, and ensuring that the HVAC system is working properly. A well-maintained property will not only attract better tenants but will also increase its overall value.

Marketing Efforts: Once your property is in great shape, it's time to start marketing it to potential tenants. Utilize online listing sites such as Zillow and Trulia and consider running targeted advertisements on Facebook and other social media platforms based on who you are trying to target for your rental property. Make sure to highlight the property's unique features and the benefits of living in the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg Community, such as its proximity to base, shopping, and dining options. Remember, you're selling a lifestyle, not just a roof over someone's head!

Prepare for Higher Demand: With increased demand comes the need for a smooth and efficient rental process. Make sure you have a system in place for receiving and processing applications, as well as a process for conducting background checks and verifying employment and income. False pay stubs are on the rise, along with fake emotional support letters for ESA animals. This will help ensure that you are able to place high-quality tenants quickly and effectively in your property. And trust us, you don't want to miss out on the chance to rent to a great tenant because of a slow and cumbersome process!
