It does not take much effort for a landlord to make sure that a vacant unit looks like a place where renters want to feel at home. My years of experience in the field of real estate investors have revealed that some interior work added the most value to your property.
Fresh paint is the cheapest way to refresh a unit that looks tired or old-fashioned. The competition for a potential tenant interest begins in all areas that the tenant sees as he or she arrives at the unit, so the first impression counts a lot. A newly painted house never fails to lift the spirits!
In small spaces, the conventional wisdom is to use light colors across the house to make the spaces more airy and open. But this is not necessarily the case. Give the room a little pop by painting all your walls in a clear hue and then finish one in a striking color. This gives your room a focal point and indeed, making the rest of the room disappear and feel more spacious.
When trying to sell or rent your apartment, use texture, layering, and lighting to enhance the rooms. When the budget allows, some basic furniture, art and accessories are a great way to bring color trends into your home and create that wow factor. The place should also be exceptionally lit in all areas to make it more attractive.
You will not be fooled by renovating an outdated kitchen or bathroom. For cooking, focus on the basics: redo the existing cabinets; install a new wall oven, cooktop and sink; finishing or covering old tiles. Rejuvenating an old bathroom costs a lot less than updating a kitchen. Improvement works may include the installation of a new bathtub or a new shower wall, toilet and a courtesy counter.
