For Rent Scottsdale – Learn More about What Renters Are REALLY Searching For


By GoldenWest Management

There’s no denying that more people than ever before are searching for properties for rent in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley, but the big question is what are they really looking for?

If you just purchased a Phoenix Valley Rental Property, or you’ve owned a home for a while but have been unable to rent it yet, here are 7 things renters are really searching for in rental properties.

#1 – An Updated Rental

In 2015 renters are searching for single family homes, town homes, condos and rental properties which are updated and include modern features especially in the kitchens and bathrooms. This includes newer or refinished cabinets and upgraded counter tops.

#2 – More Storage Space

Since many renters these days are also long term renters who are searching for properties which include: bigger closets (think walk-ins), garages with cabinets or attics, as well as any other onsite storage.

#3 – Usable Outdoor Space

Your Scottsdale or Paradise Valley Rental Home may have an outdoor space but is it really usable? If not, you should consider adding faux grass or pliable gravel for kids and animals to play on. In addition, stamped concrete or patios should include tables, chairs and a grill so your tenants can enjoy the outdoors more.

#4 – Safety

Yes, tenants are searching for updated rentals with good amenities but they are also searching for safe rentals as well. You should consider replacing old doors, locks and windows to make your tenants feel safer / more secure.

#5 – Clean Rental Property

It doesn’t matter if you are renting a single family home which was built in the 1950’s, or a new townhome which was built in 2014, your property for rent in Scottsdale must be clean when it’s ready to rent since a dirty rental can easily turn away prospective tenants. Don’t wait to have the home professionally cleaned, carpets steam cleaned, and bathrooms and tubs caulked.

#6 – Close To Everything

Let’s say that your rental is close to all of the best stores, shops and restaurants that Scottsdale has to offer. You should be promoting your rentals close proximity to everything when you market it either online or offline.
