6 Ways To Improve Rent From Your Property

Did you know that certain methods can be used to add value to a property, create demand, and provide you with a chance to increase rent? Here are a few key points shared by TheHouseMonk.

1) Shared Accomodation

If you have a multi-room unit, the rent will be high. Higher the rent, higher the difficulty in finding a tenant. To overcome this you can seta rentfor each room and rent them out individually rather than giving the entire unit to 1 person.


Assume that a 3bhkfurnished flat is rented out for Rs. 35,000. The same flat, when rented on a shared accommodation basis, the rent for each room can go up to Rs. 15,000 (say). This will earn you an additional Rs. 10,000 when compared to non sharing basis.

2) Reduce Deposit

Many people shifting to a new city dont have enough funds to pay a high security deposit. In such cases you can consider increasing the rent and reducing the security deposit.


If the security deposit of a 3bhkis around 2 Lakhs and the rent is 30k, you can consider reducing the deposit to 1 Lakh and increasing the rent to 35k

3) Short Term Rental

Providing flats for short term rentals using websites like Airbnb has proven to be more profitable than giving it on a long term rental.


Imagine you are renting out a 3bhk unit on a long term basis for Rs. 30,000. On a short term basis, the rent for the same flat will be Rs. 3,000 per day (approximately) and by end of the month it will sum up to Rs. 90,000. Even with 50% occupancy, you will still be able to earn more than what you can on long term rental.

4) Change To Commercial

Converting the unit into a commercial space will allow you to increase your rent by a substantial amount. With the increase in startups, such commercial spaces are in high demand. A residential flat can be converted to a commercial unit just by changing the water and electricity bill tocommercialtariff.

5) Providing Furnished Flats

People are starting to prefer furnished flats. This is more evident when it comes to bachelors and young couples when shifting to a new flat.


  • A iningtable, sofa(s) and cots
  • Wi-Fi facilities
  • Provision for air conditioner
  • TV, fridge, Washing Machine and Microwave
  • Cable connections for TV

Provision of these facilities helps tenants to adapt to the new environment easily. Hence their preference towards such flats also increases.

6) Freshly Painted and Cleaned

Studies have shown that tenants are more likely to take a freshly painted and clean house, than a house that has not been cleaned. This is because the features offered by the flat are more evident in a clean house making it easier for the tenants to decide.
