How to let your Home this Autumn - Maximise your chances of letting your home this Autumn.

The summer holidays have gone, the kids are back at school and normality returns. If you are thinking of letting your home, now is the time to do it. The property market often sees a surge of tenants looking to move before Christmas. Whether your property is empty waiting for a loving tenant to move in or your tenants have given notice- there are lots of things you can do to maximise a let.

Check Gutters and Roofs - These easily get clogged up with falling leaves. Donít wait for your current tenant to report your gutters are full and over flowing during a downpour. Get them cleaned and checked regularly and check for any missing/slipped roof tiles. It is little things like this that bring top quality tenants.

Gardens - Empty properties with gardens can soon become overgrown and full of leaves this time of year. So clear away any leaves and summer memorabilia (barbecues and furniture) Properties that have tenants packing to leave might not have the gardening at top of their mind and probably will not take care of it until a week before they move out. Why not offer a one of garden tidy up. Neat and tidy gardens this time of year really sell.

Windows - Try to keep windows sparkling clean. Tenanted property? why not include this in your tenant incentive when clearing the garden and gutters. Clean windows is such a great way to enhance natural light and create bright rooms.

Warmth-  If your property is empty and the Autumn temperatures  really begin to drop set the heating to come on 30 minutes before the viewing. But remember donít go too hot, the last thing you need is a stuffy house which sees your viewers rush to door.
