Here at Quicklets, we want you to know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Here are five tips you might want to follow before blaming estate agents, real estate agencies, or the market!

1.     Stage your property for photos when estate agents come or when you take them.

 

This is an extremely important point for renting your property. Make sure that when agents come to list your property, you clean up any mess that there might be. Any mess. Seriously, any clutter left around looks completely out of place on photos and will reduce your chances of renting property in Malta.

Dude, just clean up.

Have you ever bought something online? If yes, the first listings you probably clicked on are the ones with photos, and primarily, the ones with nice photos. Property is even more important guys.

Agents will do their best to take the perfect angle and include all the perks your property comes with – but you must first lay down the foundation for that to happen. No clutter! Oh, and lest we forget – toilet seat ALWAYS down!

Quicklets agents are always ready to come and list your property, take photos and make it look pretty.

2.     Contact real estate agents more often.

 

Get in touch with agents and let them know when your property will be coming available. Make sure you contact them closer to available date. Your property is one of thousands which come available, so it needs to stand out amidst other properties in Malta.

3.     When making the contact, always provide precise and relevant information.

 

When sending an email, WhatsApp, Facebook Message, SMS or Tinder ;) to your Real Estate agents with the information and/or photos of your property for rent, here is what you should ALWAYS include (IN ONE TEXT – so agents can share it between themselves faster:

  1. Address.
  2. Contact number.
  3. Contact email.
  4. Photos.
  5. Date of availability.
  6. Number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms
  7. Other property specificities: views, utilities and appliances, useful amenities in proximity (grocer, bank, bus stops, bars and restaurants).

4.     Upgrade furniture and/or utilities in your property for rent.

 

A major part of renting your property in Malta and retaining its renting price is tied down to how modern your furniture is and the utilities the property has. These include air-conditions, televisions, Wi-Fi upgrades, etc.

A modern touch to your property for rent will make it more attractive to clients who have several options within their budget range.

 

5.     Drop prices to rent your property more

 

If you’re not ready to make changes to your property in any way, then drop the prices – you’ll rent more! It’s better to rent out your property for 12 months at 900euro TODAY, rather than wanting to keep the price at 1,200euro NEXT MONTH, actually you make 360 EURO MORE!  Many other properties in Malta come available, and if they are more modern and offer more utilities than yours, at approximately the same price, then yours is less likely to get rented.

You might get a call from Quicklets Specialists to ask for clients with a lesser budget to come and view your property. If you have had a couple of dry months, we strongly advise you to rethink the price and keep your property for rent full instead of empty!
