What do tenants look for in a rental property?

Are you currently looking to rent out your property to tenants or have been trying to without any luck? Here we will help you improve your chances by sharing some insights into what tenants look for in a rental property.


A good location is what most tenants look for in a rental property, but a good location will mean different things to different people. For example, some people may just be looking for a nice, safe neighbourhood, whereas others may be looking to live in a catchment area for a good school or close to their place of work. Use your knowledge of the location to your advantage when advertising your rental property.


All prospective tenants will be looking to get the most for their money so you need to make sure you are offering your property at a competitive rate. Find out the rental rates of other similar properties in the area, but make sure you also factor in the size of your property and any additional features.

Attractive features

  • Contemporary kitchen and bathroom suite
