Tenants are looking for the same basic things as buyers – location and value.
A tenant is renting the home; they won’t pay as much as a buyer for those things that put a lot of value in the land. A tenant will pay something for a view, but not as much as a buyer.
Tenants want a place with easy access to work, with good schools. They want as large and updated a property as possible for their money.
Investors should consider location and price. Look for something in good condition – updated or inexpensively updateable. A low maintenance yard is preferable. Avoid tenant liability issues like hot tubs or steeply pitched yards.
