Homes that are well maintained rent for more money and have less vacancy time. Routine maintenance is key to keeping up the value of your home. Some routine maintenance may include replacing window coverings, re-grouting kitchen tile counter tops, tile floors, and tile showers. Exterior maintenance such as paint. landscape, and fences will keep up the homes curb appeal.
As properties age, they will need some updating in addition to routine maintenance. The quickest and most cost effective way to update the look of a home is by replacing old light fixtures, old sinks and faucets, and mismatched towel bars or door knobs. For a home that has been well maintained, as the home approaches the 40 year mark it may be time to start thinking about remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms.
Make Your Home Stand Out From the Rest
When it is time for a full interior paint, consider changing the color. But be careful, bold colors can limit the amount of prospective tenants that the color appeals to. We recommend a neutral light beige with white trim. When prospective tenants are searching for a home, they are looking for something neutral that will match their furniture and fit their style. While white walls will match anything, it lacks the appeal that a warm neutral color provides. With the custom color and contrast for the trim, it changes from looking like a house to a home.
