Tips for Landlords to go green

As a landlord, you have a lot on your plate. Your job’s all about making the tenant happy, even if that means watching money go down the drain. But what if it were possible to keep the tenant happy while saving money? This can be accomplished by going green.

Finding ways to integrate eco-friendly features into your rental units will save you money, help the environment, and attract high-end tenants. Conserving the environment is currently a popular trend, and the best of tenants are both socially and financially responsible. In order to attract better tenants and reduce your carbon footprint, use these tips for making your rental property more environmentally accountable.  

1. Go Paperless

Ditch the mailed bills and 12-page, hard copy contracts. You can save hundreds per year just by using paperless billing and lease agreements. This eliminates the hassle of filing papers, and it reduces the amount of wasted paper used in the office. 

Going paperless isn’t as easy as it sounds. It can be difficult to create an online rental agreement that meets your needs and is legally approved. That’s when it’s a good idea to use a real estate tool such as the highly rated Housing.com, which can help you form an online rental agreement without hassle. These kinds of tools are useful in making a stress-free environmental transition.
