If you are a landlord, you undoubtedly want good, quality tenants – tenants who pay their rent on time and take good care of the property. This is true whether you own a home that you are renting out or commercial office space. As a good landlord, you understand that the tenants, in return, want a good landlord – one who takes care of needed repairs in a timely manner and charges reasonable rent. Hopefully, this is the peaceful, symbiotic relationship that you have with your tenants.
We would like to suggest yet another way that you can be seen as a good landlord, perhaps even a great one! We suggest having the windows tinted. Whether you own a home or commercial space that you are renting out, if it has windows, then get them tinted! You might not know why this is beneficial, so let us explain.
Tinted Windows are a Selling Point
Every landlord and tenant has their own agreement. Some landlords pay utilities; some tenants pay utilities. Sometimes they split them up with each party paying specific utility costs. Tinting the windows will lower the energy bill. If you, as the landlord, pay this bill, then that should make you very happy! If your tenants pay the bill, think how happy they will be! Happy tenants will likely take good care of the property and maybe stay for a longer period of time which is great news for you because finding new tenants that you can trust can be challenging. However, tenants don’t usually stay forever, particularly in a home. But, having the windows tinted is a great “selling point” as you search for new tenants. You might be thinking that you don’t like the look of tinted windows on a home, but did you know that you can actually get a clear tint? It offers the same benefits as darker tint without changing the look of the home.
Window Tint is a Safety Measure
However, if you choose to go with a darker or reflective tint, then you have also added a security measure to your home or office building. Burglars are less likely to enter a home if they can’t readily see any “goods” inside or see if there are people inside looking back at them. Home security is a great “selling point,” as well! Plus, won’t you feel better knowing your house or building is more secure, even if you’re not the one occupying it?
Tint Protects Furniture and Flooring
Window tint also protects the inside of the property, such as furniture and flooring. How? Window tint keeps out 99% of the sun’s UV rays preventing furniture and flooring from fading due to sun exposure. Not having to replace those items as frequently saves you money! Along with this money-saving benefit is yet one more money-saving advantage – a tax break. Hooray! Everyone loves those words. Because it is an energy-saving feature, you may get a tax break for having window tint installed.
Quite frankly, we can’t see why, as a landlord, you wouldn’t want to do it! An average-size home of approximately 2,000 square feet or less can be completed in one day! Your tenants won’t be inconvenienced, and you will both benefit. It is most definitely a win-win situation.
