Preparing for The older Tenant 

 

 

 

People are living longer and future renters are going to be older and in need of more medical attention then younger renters need. It will be to the Landlords benefit to be prepared to accommodate the older renter in the years to come. You may ask, what can a Landlord do to prepare for the new older renter? the answer is multi-fold, some things are easy and others are not.

 

The first thing that I would recommend, is if you are going out to buy a rental property and you want to be ready for the older Tenant, buy a single story property. Stairs are something that is not conducive for the older Tenant and if you already own a two story home, make sure the downstairs has a master bedroom or at least a larger room for the Tenant who can’t climb the stairs.

 

The second thing that I would recommend is make the door ways wider for easier wheel chair access. A Tenant that is in a wheel chair will have problems getting through a standard door frame. Also the law states that a Tenant can make some changes to a home at their expense, to make life easier for them to enjoy the rental property and as a Landlord, you should try and help them out as much as possible, even if it just with encouragement. Also, More and more people are getting medical attention in the home, I am one who has experience with this, since my mom  does Home dialysis. As a Landlord you should be very open to having plumbing and electrical work done to the home to accommodate the home patient.

 

Make sure that if you have stairs at the front entrance and if it is too difficult to change those stairs, then at least  have one entrance in the home have wheelchair access. Also make sure that the access leads to an area that is easily maneuvered by a wheel chair and that the person in the wheelchair has ease when making it to the main area of the home.

 

One big thing for Landlords who want to get ready for the older Tenant, if you are willing to make some structural changes, is a larger bathroom. this can be huge, especially for a person in a wheel chair and a shower or tub with easy access will be a great seller when a person with these kind of medical issues are looking for a home to rent.

 

I understand that for many Landlords, these changes may not be possible, but for the Landlords who want to focus on the Older Tenant then these changes that I mentioned will help you especially when you market your property. In my business of Property Management in Anaheim Ca. I understand that it is not easy for handicapped individuals to find homes that will accommodate their handicap, but in the future I think that will change. We hear all the time about the “Baby Boomers” are getting ready to retire and there are quite a few of them. My suggestion to future Landlords is to keep these large numbers of Baby Boomers in mind.

 

You don’t have to make all these changes at once, as things need to be repaired, do the repairs with accommodating the Older Tenant in mind and as time goes on, you will have a property that will be friendly for the Tenant who has special  needs and the best part, these accommodations, like wider doors and larger bathrooms will not be a hindrance for people who don’t have any special needs.  Your property will be able to market to a wider range of Tenants and thats great for the Landlord and future Tenants.

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
