Do I Need to Provide Appliances in a Rental Property?

Providing Appliances Can help You Place Better Tenants, Faster

Providing Appliances in a Rental Property is Not Required

However, providing appliances will help you place a quality tenant much faster. Rental properties without dishwashers, refrigerators, or microwaves can seem less attractive on the market. Renters often expect a property to come with those appliances at the very least.

While it may not increase the rental rate of a property, it will help shorten vacancy times and ultimately lead to a more positive experience for you and your tenants.

Upgraded Properties Get Higher Rents and Better Tenants

In some cases, newer, more upgraded appliances can lead to higher rents. You consult with a Rent Ready expert to see if upgrading a property's appliances is a worthwhile investment.

Providing Appliances That Are In Good Working Condition Is Essential

It is important to do a thorough inspection of the property to see if it's ready to rent. You will want to make sure you have a good grasp of what needs to be fixed in the home, and you also want to take note of any recurring problems with the property's appliances. Fixing as many of these issues as you can, ahead of time, can go a long way to preventing problems with the renter who moves into the residents.

Providing appliances in a rental property is highly recommended and all the appliances should be in good working order. Without appliances, you will be limiting your application pool and increasing your vacancy time.
