No matter if the apartment you sell or rent is located in the best and the most famous quart of a city some things from your neighborhood can definitely jeopardize your sale or rent.
Among the first things that buyers and tenants usually escape are messy, overgrown yards and abandoned houses. Not just that most of the people don’t want to live isolate and far away from people, these messy areas can be the source of different problems with insects and other locust-trees. However, big noise is even bigger problem if present in a neighborhood where you rent or sell house or an apartment.
Furthermore, among top 5 enemies for renting and selling of your house, there are bad smells, big noise made by animals, barking and howling, as well as the noise of cars and public transportation. Even a noise from a neighbor that has just started renovation of his house might be harmful for a final rent/sale agreement.
Equally important are social qualities of your neighbors. As you never know when you will need some of help, it is always good to have a favorable person next to your door, however impolite and long-tongued neighbors that spread the rumors around can bepretty irritating, as every one of us want to enjoy in the peace and freedom of his own home and yard.
Although you cannot influence to the most of these things when preparing your property to rent or for sale, try to be careful and aware of them when presenting your property and bringing potential tenants for a first visiting. Otherwise they might not return never again.
