When a student steps outside the house for the first time, they don’t know what to expect. They are yet to learn basic chores like cooking, laundry, etc. Moreover, the art of managing finances is one they haven’t yet mastered. On top of that, high chances are they are totally new to the city. In case you have a student rental property, you could make this transition easier for them. How? By making these simple improvements to your property’s environment:
1) Acquaint them with the city and with each other:
All freshers have one thing in common. They are all new to the city and don’t have a friend. They could benefit from the fact that all their roommates are strangers. You could take them on a sightseeing tour around the city or at the least, introduce them to the locality and show them some important landmarks such as hospitals, police stations, etc in the vicinity. This group tour can also be an interesting way to spark friendships.
2) Weekly specials:
Become the coolest landlord ever and give your tenants a chance to be your friends for life. You can have weekends dedicated to karaoke or jamming sessions, with a once-a-week special meal on the house. Moreover, you could and rather you should celebrate every birthday with a bang. What better way to make everyone feel at home!
3) How about a property makeover question mark?
The ambience of your property radiates its vibes. Make sure the vibes are great, and you can do that easily by selecting bright lustrous colours for the interior. Peppy furniture, colour coordinated walls, and upbeat accessories (guitars, fairy lights, etc) could make your place come to life. Nothing says good vibes quite like a bunch of cute puppies hopping around the property. The best type of people are animal lovers, and you should have a friendly house ready to greet and different the freshers. In case you feel managing a pet could be tough, you should at the very least, get an aquarium. A lush green lawn with a variety of blossoming and blooming flowers is another way to keep the environment alluring.
4) Be easy to get:
It is imperative for the growth of your business and the comfort of your occupants that your address is easy to find. Moreover, listing yourself upon trusted online sources searches could help your visibility and connect you to your future tenants. To know more you can check Iglu.
5) Keep notes handy:
Don’t forget the freshers are new to the property and they may not remember all the rules you have already stated. Rather, you could further make their lives easier by putting out colourful friendly reminders. For instance, if you would like every tenant to clean their own dishes, you could put out a note right above the kitchen sink. Now, the key here is not sound extraordinarily formal. Make these notes light-hearted and warm. The warmer you are to the newest members, the easier it will be for them to understand and accept the property rules.
Apart from that, you could also have an exciting common area. Throw in some bean bags, guitars, and books together. What you have just made yourself is a room with infinite possibilities to foster friendships, memories, and happiness. On top of that, you could get yourself some indoor games such as UNO, Jenga, etc. The times of a simple bed and bathroom are gone, spice up your accommodation and incorporate a “fun” room.
