Why Landlords Should Hire a Lawn Care Professional for Their Rental Properties
If you’ve ever been a landlord, you know how challenging it can be to get your tenants to mow their lawns on a regular basis. While most landlords simply charge their tenants a fine for not upkeeping their lawns, perhaps there’s another solution: hire a lawn care service. Here’s why it’s a smart idea.
You can incentivize tenants by telling them lawn care is included in their rent.
Renters typically look for homes where utilities or lawn care are included. So even if you have to bump up the rent, tenants will no doubt be willing to pay a premium for this service because it means less responsibility for them. Not having to worry about lawn care may make tenants more likely to rent from you. Additionally, it would be a huge relief for your tenant (and you!).
You’ll always make a good first impression.
Unfortunately, you can’t always count on renters to keep your property’s lawn looking nice. By hiring a lawn care professional, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your property always looks good. You won’t ever have to worry about whether or not your tenants are maintaining positive curb appeal!
