Pool Cleaning Services For Tenants – A New Fad For Property Owners & Managers
If you own or manage one or more rental properties with swimming pools anywhere near Fort Worth, you already know that in order to get a quality renter into the home you will need to have the pool cleaned before showing it to potential renters. But did you know that advertising pool maintenance service as a bonus with no cost for the renter will attract great tenants as well?
There’s a new trend going around in the rental market and that is for the owner to handle all the pool maintenance and cleaning during the lease term.
Many families who can afford a great property to rent don’t have the time between working and caring for their families to clean a swimming pool, so unknown to you they could consider having a swimming pool as more of a burden than a plus when they’re looking at rental properties to move into. But that won’t be a factor if you offer pool maintenance and cleaning services for the tenant -just the opposite will be true.
The costs for the pool cleaning and maintaining can be factored in in other ways to where there would be little out of pocket expense for the owner. And for the small price of cleaning and maintaining the pool, there can be huge returns.
Homes with swimming pools may seem like they would be easy to rent out, but you have to walk in a tenants shoes for a while to understand how that may not be true. Tenants that rent homes that are in better condition expect to pay a little higher rent than for homes that aren’t in great shape.
Tenant Love Not Having To Keep Up With Pools
Letting the potential renters know that they won’t have to worry about the upkeep of their pool is a huge plus and will be a very attractive bonus that will draw attention when you’re trying to get a quality tenant to rent out the home.
Swimming pool cleaning services here in Fort Worth, like the professionals at Gateway Pool Service, can offer you cleaning and maintenance plans for all the rental properties you manage or own that have pools. Just like lawn care services provide for many investment property managers and owners, you can get a great deal the more properties you have serviced.
When your tenants know they won’t have to mess around with cleaning the pool or worry about repairs, they won’t be worrying over having to deal with an extra issue every week or so. Plus, you’ll always have the option of having pool services scheduled monthly instead of weekly or biweekly.
Most of your renters will wind up skimming a few leaves anyway as the days go by, so having a monthly thorough cleaning could be all you need to raise the home’s rental value a little.
The Real Huge Bonus Of Offering Pool Services For Tenants
Have you ever put a home up for lease with a pool that’s beautiful and clean when you show it but a year later when the tenant leaves, you find it a huge dirty mess with some broken tiles or equipment problems?
The real bonus you’ll have when you offer pool cleaning with a lease is that you know the swimming pool will stay in great shape, which helps the home to keep the value you invested in it. Good upkeep of a swimming pool can be overlooked by many well intending tenants, but often they find they don’t have time or resources to keep up with it. That only means the property value will go down as your swimming pool degrades.
