Location, Location, Location! This could be in a well-established neighborhood, a popular place in town or an up and coming city! Most people look for neighborhoods with low crime rate, good schools, and ones with access to plenty of stores, restaurants, parks, and other nearby establishments.
2. Upgrade the kitchen and bathroom
The kitchen and bathroom can be a make or break for renters. The reason for this is the kitchen and bathroom are what become outdated most quickly. By adding modern fixtures, it can bring a more modern/ new feel to the home.
3. Invest in curb appeal
The homes exterior is the first thing potential renters will see. This must make a good impression. Sometimes some power washing can help clean up the exterior walls. Depending on the size of the yard, consider investing in greenery in the flower beds or lawn, real or artificial. This can brighten up the exterior and make it look more put together.
4. Fresh paint
One of the easiest changes you can make is adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls. Not only will this brighten up the space, but the smell of paint gives off the illusion that the home is new and well kept.
Lastly, if you can, add some amenities to your investment property. This could be little things such as outdoor furniture, increased storage options, etc.
