When you rent out apartments on your rental property, offering amenities to your tenants is always a plus. There are many resources available to help you figure out how to manage these amenities.
Having these perks will also encourage tenants to stay with you longer. A balcony, an extra garage space, or a pool or a hot tub can make your guest’s stay more enjoyable and allow you to charge a little extra per rental.
Here are some useful tips when you have a pool or hot tub on your rental property.
Keep Your Pool or Hot Tub Clean
Having a pool to cool off in during the warmer months is a luxury that many renters are happy to pay for. While other amenities can be convenient, a pool in a Las Vegas rental property can be very attractive to renters. Who doesn’t like lounging by the pool, or taking a refreshing dip on a hot summer day?
As for hot tubs, a hot tub is a great place to escape after a hard day at work or in chillier weather. It provides an intimate setting in which people can enjoy drinks or visit with one another. Many tenants will appreciate this luxury when they need to relax their tense muscles and clear their minds.
However, for these kinds of luxuries to be available to your tenants, you must keep your pool or hot tub clean and in working order. For pools, you want to make sure that the chlorine levels are sufficient and that all debris has been cleared out of the water. You will need to clean and check the filter levels regularly, and you’ll need to ensure the water levels are appropriate as well.
For hot tubs, make sure your filters are cleaned and that there is enough sanitizer in the water. You may also want to consider draining the hot tub water and replacing it with fresh water once a year. Following maintenance and safety protocols will ensure satisfied tenants as well as increase the lifespan of your investment.
Keep Kids Safe
There is always the possibility of kids drowning on your property if you’re not careful, so make sure to keep your pool gated. You can secure your pool by installing a fence directly around the pool’s perimeter to prevent accidental falls.
Providing life jackets and floaties may also be appreciated if your tenants have young children who don’t know how to swim. Ensure that tenants follow the pool rules in the landlord-tenant agreement and practice safe swimming practices.
Include Pool Maintenance in the Rent
We always recommend that rental home owners manage the pool servicing, and build that cost into the rent. Tenants may not know how to properly care for a pool, so leaving it to them is not the best idea.
There are many pool services in Las Vegas, who will be happy to take care of the pool and/or hot tub at your rental for a reasonable cost. As part of our property management service, we can manage this for you.
Having a pool or hot tub can keep your tenants entertained and even attract tenants if it is properly maintained. To keep your pool or hot tub clean and running smoothly, consider hiring a maintenance company. This will ensure that you’re alerted of dangerous conditions and possible health issues before your tenants have an accident or get sick.
