California has been, and will continue to be, one of the top places to live. Whether you own a property that you have long-term renters in or you’ve got a property intended for short stays through Airbnb, pest control and pest management is your responsibility. While you’re not living in the property, one of the most crucial things you need to continue to provide renters with is a house that they enjoy living in. With pest control problems, tenants are much less likely to stay for long periods of time, and short-term visitors are certainly not going to leave you that 5-star review that draws others to your property.
In today’s blog, we are going to touch on a few of the reasons that you as a rental property owner will benefit from scheduling pest control services at your investment property.
Avoiding Damage in Your House
Your investment property is just that: an investment. You’ve had to put additional money towards it, and you’ve worked hard to own it and ensure that it’s an ideal property for others to live in. That being said, when you look for renters you want to find someone that you can rely on to take care of your property, right? If you’re expecting someone else to take care of your property when they’re living in it, then it’s vital that you are also making an effort to care for your rental property for the pieces that make it an ideal space to live.
This is true with countless things, but pest control is one of them. When pests become a problem in your home, not only are they a nuisance to deal with, but they can cause some serious damage to your home. From termites to bed bugs, you’re looking at much larger problems when you neglect any pests in or surrounding your rental property. Rather than let it get to the point of having to deal with repairs, do your best to stay on top of any and all signs of pests as soon as you notice them.
Create an Attractive Property
When individuals are looking for a long-term place to live, they are going to be looking into the conditions of the property before determining if it’s somewhere that they’d like to live. This goes from the upkeep of the house to any signs of pests that they’re going to have to deal with. When a tenant is stuck dealing with unexpected pests at the time of their lease, it’s less than ideal and will affect their experience of living in your property. Though that may not seem like a big deal, it’s this terrible experience and them sharing it with friends and family that can leave you desperate for a renter down the road.
The same can be said about investment properties that are being used for temporary stays or vacation rentals. When an individual is looking for a place to stay while on vacation or spending a small amount of time in a different area, they are wanting to find a place that they feel comfortable in and will accommodate for all their needs. If your investment property is already speaking to the needs of potential visitors, then the one thing that you are going to need to continue to focus on will be their experience. Pest control is a crucial part of this in that no one paying for an Airbnb or a vacation property wants to deal with pests while they’re enjoying time elsewhere.
The long story short, make sure that you’re taking care of all pest problems so that anyone that’s staying in your investment property is having a good experience and will share that with others.
