Small Flats to Rent GlasgowJune 14, 2016 2:56 pm
When looking to purchase small flats to rent in Glasgow, there are some things that remain the same as with larger properties while others are a little different. For example, general principles still apply such as that the kitchen and bathroom are in a good condition. Storage is especially important within a smaller property as this makes the most of the space and shows tenants that the property will be convenient to live in and uncluttered.
Small flats are most often rented either to students or single professionals working or studying in the city. This means they have certain requirements that can apply to other groups – access to public transport is one. With a bus route close to the property or easy access to the train network, the property will instantly become easier to find the right tenant. It can even increase the rental yield by offering the right combination of elements that students or young professionals require.
Elements such as a garden or parking are less important with flats than with houses as small flats don’t tend to be ideal for families. But if there are parking areas and a communal garden then this can give added benefit to the property.
Finding a tenant once you have the right property can be tricky with all the checks needed but by using a letting agent, the work can largely be taken out of the job. Let It are a Glasgow-based agent who can offer a full range of services including finding the tenant, sorting the tenancy agreement, complete the relevant checks and even manage the property once they are in place.
