Some properties make a great first impression. It’s called curb appeal, and it can make your property easier or more difficult to rent.
Time to fix the existing eyesore
Take a good look at your investment property through the eyes of a potential tenant. If you wouldn’t want to live there, it’s time to make some changes. Address any peeling paint and lackluster landscaping right away. If you choose to ignore curb appeal, all the high-end interior finishes in the world won’t make much difference. Your property will stay vacant, and your portfolio will suffer.
Prevent the ugly with regular maintenance
The most effective way to keep your property in tip-top shape and looking its best is to stick to a regular maintenance schedule. Don’t neglect seasonal landscape changes and tree and hedge pruning. Touch up exterior painting where it’s needed. Add finishing touches when you can, and don’t be afraid to spend a little money to aim for 100 percent occupancy.
Enlist tenants’ help
Current renters can help keep your property looking great, or they can ruin its drive-by charm. Make sure your tenants do their part to keep trash and non-running vehicles off your property. Also, encourage them to add their own tasteful touches to their home’s exterior.
