Turn your property into a Rental:

The most reliable way to make extra income from your condo is to convert your property into a rental. The University Belt (namely, around the districts of Quiapo, Sampaloc, and San Miguel) is littered with numerous universities. Some big names around UBelt are: the University of Santo Tomas (UST), University of the East (UE), San Beda University, and the National University (NU). In UBelt, there is no shortage of students looking for Dorms– the perfect place to start renting your property.

Here are 3 things to consider before renting your unit out:

Repairs and Maintenance

Before dormers can rent your unit out, it is important to conduct a thorough inspection of the utilities and structure of the property. This is to ensure that the maintenance is up to date and that the condo is in excellent condition so you can save a lot of money and frustration in the long run. Additionally, a well-maintained unit attracts more tenants. This process includes checking the utilities such as the electrical, water, repairs, and parking space if necessary.

Terms and Conditions

Setting clear terms and conditions before renting your unit out is vital for a smooth landlord-tenant relationship. At the minimum, these terms should include the duration of the lease, rent payment deadlines, security deposit requirements, and policies on maintenance responsibilities. It is also important to decide on whether you will allow pets, roommates, visitors, and etc.
