Making sure your property is clean will have an immediate return on the value of your property. Tenants want a unit that feels new, although they know they are not the first to rent the space, but a scrubbed to shine will give them the feeling that they are. Before showing your rental property to prospective tenants or after every moving-out, spend some little money to hire a thorough cleaning on www.kaodim.com, you can get the return right from the first month rental!
2. Paint & wallpaper
You will be amazed by the difference a fresh coat of paint can make. Paint the walls, ceiling, etc. if they are looking shabby. Put up new wallpaper if the wall is peeling or torn, wallpaper won’t cost much now but it makes your property classy for sure.
3. Install security system
Tenants want to feel safe and know their things are too. Good locks, grille, CCTV will help a lot. You may also install a “fake” security system like putting a camera or security siren outside of your property, just tell your prospective tenants, they can accept it too 🙂
4. Equipped with new electric appliances
LCD TV, fridge, washing machine and microwave etc. You will have a good point why your rent is higher than others on the same block. Doing so might be costly, go by rent then!
