Our tips for preparing your property for the RENTAL market


Here are our 5 expert tips for preparing your property for the rental market in Malta. We have created this list based on feedback from our highly experienced Lettings department, with the aim of helping Landlords achieve a smooth transition into the residential long lets industry.

  1. Timing

    Identify the key times in the year when its best to rent your home. Understand that in Malta Christmas will be a quieter time as well as the build-up to elections and big sporting events like the World Cup. Schools go back in October here so traditionally more viewings take place when children are back at school and the parents have more time!

  2. De-Clutter & De-Personalize

    Potential tenants need a “blank canvas” so they visualise living in your home. Therefore keep colour schemes simple and neutral. Try and make the property appear as large as possible by removing needless bulky objects. Hallways are key, make sure they are neat and presentable as first impressions really make a difference. Make sure kitchens aren’t cluttered with too many appliances on the work surfaces and that bins and tea towels aren’t smelly or dirty.

  3. DIY & Repairs

    A fresh coat of paint in between tenant occupancy can work wonders, as can a new kitchen or if budgets are tight then change the cupboard doors instead. New bathrooms and showers are also a huge selling point but a fresh grouting of a shower can also really help. Don’t let things seem tired or neglected. Pay careful attention to good lighting, especially down-lighters and make sure broken bulbs are changed. Get a snagging list together of things that need to be fixed and tick them off!

  4. Clean!

    Make sure the house is spotless. Get carpets and windows cleaned, sofa covers washed and it might be worth getting some professional oven cleaners in. Remember kitchens and bathrooms are key to renting your place so pay particular attention to these areas. Make them inviting, fresh white towels in the bathrooms and a new loo seat work wonders. Don’t over fill storage areas and wardrobes as people will look inside. Gardens and outdoor space are now seen as additional rooms so make the most of them and focus on entertaining and relaxing.

  5. Buy Quality!

    Remember the saying – buy cheap buy twice!! Therefore when you furnish your property it might be worth purchasing items that will last. The quality of the items within the property should reflect the price you’re asking.
