Simple Plumbing Modifications for Attracting Senior Tenants

In Australia’s private rental market, the number of renters aged above the age of 60 has seen a dramatic increase from 235,000 in 2006 to 336,000 in 2011 and has continued to rise. As more boomers and seniors search the rental market, often their search can be limited by accessibility and the lack of necessary plumbing modifications offered in the typical rental property.

Mature renters possess many desirable characteristics that establish this group as ideal tenants. This group is commonly more established financially, tend to be quieter than younger renters and are more likely to take pride in maintaining a clean home and tidy garden.
