Tenant Focus: Making a house your home and welcoming new additions!

We love it when tenants settle in superbly to one of our properties and when families grow.

We let properties to wonderful tenants every day and it makes our jobs so rewarding to see couples move into a property, stay for a long time and really make the house their home. I wanted to particularly mention Jade and Michael who moved into one of my favourite family homes in Swinton in the middle of February. We went out in the middle of July to perform a free inspection on the property five months after the move in and we were delighted to find that Jade and Michael had welcomed a new addition to the family.

As they made their move back in February they were unaware of the exciting bundle of joy that was on the way to them! The house is perfect for a small family. A traditional 3 bed semi that you can find across Greater Manchester. These properties make excellent homes and therefore excellent investments for landlords.

Jade and Michael are only the third set of tenants that the landlord has had in the property since 2007. You can see from some of these pictures how well they are looking after the property and how homely it is. We can’t wait for the next inspection, will their be more additions to the family!?

5 Tips for making your house a home

We thought it might be useful to share with you some of the tips that tenants can use to really make a house a home without going to too much expense or without affecting the decoration of the property if a landlord prefers no decoration. 1. Visit your local discount store. You will often find lots of great homewear at really affordable prices at shops such as Home Bargains, Dunnes Store andTK Maxx. 2. Decide on a colour scheme for each room and then buy cushions and decorative items to match.

3. Make your mark in the garden. This is where you can really create your own outdoor sanctuary. Look at how Jade and Michael are keeping their garden in excellent order, the BBQ is set up ready to go and the garden is another room for them to enjoy in the summer months.

4. Use a colour scheme in your kitchen to brighten up what I think is the most important room in the house!
