7 Steps To Make Your Rental Property Ready for Summer

7 Steps To Make Your Rental Property Ready for Summer

Summertime is a hot market for rental properties, literally. Preparing your rental for the summertime heat is a great measure to lure new tenants in and keep them happy and comfortable. These tips will help get your rental ready for the heat, and they are also great preventative measures to avoid issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. 1. Inspect Air Conditioning Unit- After not being used for almost a year, it’s a good idea to check the a/c unit so your tenants will be cool all summer long. The first step is to change the filter, which is generally located in the blower unit. You should also make sure the external condenser has room to breathe, with a minimum of two feet of clear space around the unit. 2. Check Interior Airflow and Ductwork- Make sure that all vents are open, moving any furniture, rugs or other obstructions that could be blocking airflow. You should also look at the ductwork for mold or excessive dust. It might be easiest to hire a company for this specialized cleaning. 3. Prep Windows and Doors for A/C Use- You should check all doors and windows for gaps. Closing any gaps ensures the cold air will stay in the building and decreases utility costs. 4. Clean Dryer Vents- If the property has a laundry room, you’ll want to clean out the dryer vents to prevent a dryer fire. Simply unhook the dryer duct and remove any dust and lint. 5. Test Smoke Detectors- It’s a good measure to test the smoke detectors regularly, and you might as well do it while you’re... read more

In the past, choosing to own versus renting a home wasn’t really a question. But with shifting dynamics and a changing workforce, apartments have come to be seen as a top-rate choice for more than just those waiting to buy. From baby boomers looking for a better location in retirement, to on-the-go workers, many in the area are finding that there’s an apartment option for almost everyone. “With the increasing growth of The Port of Orleans and the additional number of direct and international flights from [Louis Armstrong International Airport], we are expecting to see a surge of individuals coming to our area for employment and business travel,” Michelle Shane L’Hoste of 1ST LAKE PROPERTY MANAGEMENT said. New Orleans and the surrounding areas are seeing increasing numbers of professionals that are either beginning the transition to New Orleans and the surrounding region, or are employed on multi-month contracts. Many will choose apartment living for locations that are either too expensive to buy, or are simply not available for purchase. When being at the heart of it all—whether the “heart” is for work, play or both—rentals can often get residents there, and for a lower price than purchasing in the same region. “On the one hand this allows the renter to be able to stretch their dollars and afford to live in an area that they otherwise perhaps wouldn’t be able to afford if the only other way in was to buy,” Joe Pappalardo Jr. , Vice-President and In-House Counsel with LATTER & BLUM PROPERTY MANAGEMENT said. “Conversely, it can also allow the renter to save their money while they... read more
