3 Ways to Keep Your Miami Rental Property Safe In 2019

If you own Miami Rental Property one of the most important things you should do in 2019 is focus on improving the safety of your rental property. Why? If you place a high priority on the safety of your property your tenants will feel safer while they live there and more inclined to renew their leases after they come up for renewal.

In this article, we will share with you 3 easy and affordable tips you can use to improve the safety of your Miami Rental Property.

Tip #1 – Secure the Main Entrance to Your Rental Property

Regardless if you own a single-family home in Miami, or a multifamily rental property, one of the most important things you should do to keep your rental safe is to secure the main entrance by doing the following:

  • Install motion sensor lighting at the front entrance.
  • Move plants or trash cans away from the front entrance. This will eliminate potential hiding places for criminals.
  • Purchase a new front door (if needed). Ideally, we recommend that all of the homes we manage have steel front doors or solid wood front doors since hollow wood doors are easy to kick in.
  • Install a double cylinder deadbolt on the front door.

Tip #2 – Check Window Security

Once you secure the front entrance of your rental property you should next focus on improving the security of all windows on the ground floor of your property because if a window is easy to break into, a criminal won’t think twice about using the window as their access point to the property.

To secure the windows on the first floor of your property you should install sensors and locks on each window. Once a criminal sees that a window has a motion sensor and can only be opened from inside of the home, they will be less inclined to try breaking into the home especially since most motion sensors these days are also Wi-Fi enabled and can send pictures or videos to the homeowners phone.

Tip #3 – Install A Security System

Last of all, but most important, if your Miami rental property doesn’t currently have a security system you should consider adding one. Why? If a potential renter sees that your rental property has a security system that’s being monitored, they may be more inclined to rent from you especially if they will pay extra for the service because most people will like that extra peace of mind that a security system offers them.
