This is What Renters Are Looking for in a Luxury Home


What does luxury mean to renters? Convenience, style, satisfaction, extravagance, comfort… We could go on and on. The truth is, luxury means something different to everyone. Some might prefer the rooftop pool, while others couldn’t live without the built-in gym. Only a few select providers can offer inhibited luxury to their renters — Villazzo Realty is one of them. Yet, we understand that it starts with the basics. 


Hardwood Floors

No renter wants to walk into a luxury Miami real estate property to find carpeted floors. Carpet attracts dirt, dander, mold, and other allergens that reduce indoor air quality and affect those who suffer from allergies. Moreover, carpet is not aesthetically appealing and can reduce the value of an upscale home. Renters prefer hardwood or stone flooring instead. These luxury flooring materials have a timeless appeal, so they continue to reign supreme in high-end real estate. 


Nest AC

Those who choose to stay in an upscale apartment are expecting the best of the best — brand new appliances, five-star amenities, and ultimate comfort. The Nest AC can fulfill each and every one of these desires. Hailed as the best smart thermostat available on the market, the Nest AC gives owners ultimate control over the HVAC system. Renters can connect the thermostat to their phone, and have control of their indoor climate from anywhere in the world. Not to mention, this nifty appliance works hard to retain the system’s energy-efficiency. 


Sparkling Walls

There’s nothing more unappealing than a high-end rental with stained walls. This immediately tells the client that the landlord is unattentive of their property and indifferent to the renter’s needs, prompting them to take their business elsewhere. When it comes to luxury real estate in Miami, sparkling clean walls may seem like a minuscule task, but it can make all the difference. Before showing your property to a potential tenant, make sure the walls are cleaned thoroughly and have a fresh coat of paint applied. 


Superb Lighting

There are three types of lighting every home should have: general, task, and accent. The fundamental layer of lighting required in every room of the property is called general lighting. Task lighting is installed in distinct areas for specific purposes, such as offices and bathroom vanities. Finally, accent lighting is used to create an ambiance and gives homes an aesthetic appeal. While most rentals only employ one, maybe two, types of lighting, high-end properties require all three to create a leisurely atmosphere. 


Impeccable Finishes

The finishes you choose for your luxury rental will make or break the look you’re trying to convey. Renters want sophistication, elegance, and comfort. That’s exactly what the finishing touches are meant to add. Opt for state-of-the-art plumbing fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms, and adorn the rooms with delicate chandeliers, bold pendants, and decorative scones. Renters prefer floor-to-ceiling windows, which makes the space feel open and free. Lastly, don’t forget to install top-notch security features.
