Get More from Your Rental Properties Experience


As a tenant, you have unique property needs that are different from that of a prospective or current property owner. There are definite benefits and advantages to opting for rental properties, as opposed to buying fixed properties, but you also have responsibilities to meet in order to enjoy a positive rental experience.


In order to get the most out of your rental properties experience as a tenant, there are certain pitfalls to avoid too. Firstly, you should know what your short-term to medium-term accommodation needs are. Chances are that you will not always be a tenant but might some day decide to invest in a property, but while you are in this stage of your life in your life, you will do well to keep the following tips in mind to get more out of your rental property.


Know What You are Looking for Before You Start Your Search


Are you a starter family? Chances are that you will then need to rent in a residential area with day care or preschool facilities. This makes it easier to drop the children off at day care and pick them up after work, instead of driving out of your way to achieve this every morning of your life. If you are a young family, renting in a neighbourhood with good primary schools becomes more important than finding a home with a swimming pool or Jacuzzi, for example.


If you are a young professional that needs easy access to the highways to reach the city centre with ease, then renting close to the highway becomes of value to you. Areas with lots of schools can add traffic and congestion to your daily commute. These are all factors that you need to consider prior to starting your search for rental properties.


At Huurkor, our seasoned property agents will perform a needs assessment with you to determine what exactly you are looking for. This helps us to determine your needs and provide you with the rental properties that you want. This is just one more indication of how we work hard to help our clients find the home that they are searching for.


Make Sure Your Ducks are in a Row


The general industry standard is to have one month’s rent in advance, and up to one and a half months’ rent as a deposit. We will discuss the particulars with you once we reach that stage, but it is a good idea to set up your budget before you even plan the move. Make sure that you have enough money to cover your new rental property’s rent and deposit, as well as the money to pay for the actual move.


Once you have chosen the best option for you out of the list of rental properties we provide you with, we will set the wheels in motion. Our rental agreements are drawn up by legal professionals. Each agreement is drawn up for every rental property on our books, there is no one-size-fits all solution. This ensures that both the landlord’s and the tenant’s rights are pursued with a balanced and legally binding rental agreement.
