Expert Advice

Our advice for renting your property in Bordeaux

Location, a main criteria

For furnished rentals, the location of the property is essential. If your property is located in an area where demand is lower, you will have a harder time finding tenants. In Bordeaux, the best areas are the centre, the historic heart of the city; the popular district of Chartrons; or the up and coming neighbourhood of Bordeaux Sud, home to the new LGV and well located for students and professionals in the city.

Go for a studio or 1 bedroom property

The most successful properties in the furnished rental market are studios and 1 bed apartments: they represent more than half of all rentals. Large family furnished apartments with more than 2 bedrooms are also popular with families or as student house-shares.

The right equipment for a successful rental

To advertise a property as furnished, it must be equipped with 11 legally required items (see illustration) allowing the tenant to live, eat and sleep in the home. In order to rent your property as furnished accommodation more easily and at the best price, we recommend that you install some of the items most requested by tenants: internet, washing machine, TV, dishwasher, small appliances (kettle, toaster, coffee maker, iron, etc.). As for design, we recommend a simple and refined decoration that will appeal to the most people possible.

Find the right price

Our last tip to rent your property easily and efficiently is to decide the right monthly rent. If it is too high, it may take more time to find a tenant and the property being left empty could affect its profitability. To work out the right price for your furnished rental property, have a look at others that are similar in terms of location, type, space, equipment and services.
