The same holds true for rental properties.

Careful thought and consideration should be made when marketing your property for lease. The first consideration is professional photography.

By removing clutter from benchtops and living areas you are making the area more attractive and making it appear larger.

By investing in professional photography and a little thought into styling and presentation prior to marketing for intending tenants does make a difference in attracting the right tenant in the shortest period of time.
