The housing market is currently booming but it’s also very competitive. If you are putting your rental property up for sale, the goal is to sell it quickly for a great price. You want guests to choose your property over the competition. The best way to do this is to make sure your home has great renovation and curb appeal. This will not only help increase the value of your house/property but also help any possible renters look at your property and feel as though they could call this place home. Never become static with your property! You are constantly evolving as a person, so make sure your rental is as well.
Here are the best ways to make your rental property stand out from the rest:
Make Sure Your Space Is Sparkling
Your rental might be sitting empty, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore the maintenance. No one wants to walk into a potential new home and see cobwebs, toilet rings, or dusty surfaces, and that goes double for the musty smells empty houses seem to create. Make sure you give your rental property a thorough cleaning
Add a Security System
Installing a security system can be a boon to your tenant and your insurance policy. Many insurance companies give discounts for homes with monitored security systems, and many potential tenants will appreciate the extra sense of safety in a home with a monitored system. And with smart home integration features, many modern security systems are more straightforward than ever to manage.
Make Small Updates
You don’t need a full renovation to make your rental property feel fresh and new. Minor updates can have a significant impact. Consider replacing outlet covers and switchplates, updating faucets and sink hardware, or replacing out-of-style ceiling fans or miniblinds with more modern options. These small touches can modernize a space without breaking your back or your wallet.
Renovating your rental property, particularly the kitchen or bathrooms, is a surefire way to get it rented more quickly. Upgrading outdated appliances, countertops, and cabinets will give your rental kitchen a more modern appearance while switching out toilets, tubs, and other bathroom hardware can give an outdated bathroom a comfortable new look.
