Well, it looks like Spring is finally making an appearance here and people are finally going outside and moving around. They will be looking for homes and apartments to rent. The last time you updated your rental property was when? Use these three tips for easy cost-effective updates that will bring you a great return!
One: Install a new outside door
The first thing a potential renter will see about your property is the front door. The first impression will not be great if the door looks old and worn out. To change the front door is easy, inexpensive, and a great way to make your property more appealing to renters. Also, you can easily replace the door hardware if it is worn out. Remember, the color and style that you choose will say volumes about what is inside. Choose the right color and hardware and your rental will really stand out at first look.
Second, paint that interior!
When was the last time that you painted the interior of your rental ? If it’s been a few years, it is a wonder what a fresh coat of paint will do to spruce up your rental and give the space a new feel. We have discussed paint colors in the past, but new fresh paint gives an excellent financial return.
Third, that shower curtain!
When did you replace that shower curtain in your rental home last? Don’t remember? not good. Does it match the bathroom paint? Is it clean and fresh? If the answer to any of these questions is no, you need to replace the shower curtain. Shower curtains are very affordable. In addition, they come in an endless variety of colors and styles, are easy to install and will make a world of difference to the appearance of your bathroom.
In conclusion, it’s time to do those small inexpensive updates that will make your rental the one to love!
