Whether you’re an experienced investor or new to real estate investing, it’s no secret that rental properties need to be updated over time. Upgrading your rental properties is a great way to increase ROI, attract high-quality tenants, and maximize monthly rents.

Here are five upgrades you can make to maximize the value and improve the condition of your rental property to attract tenants. 

Fresh Paint

A fresh coat of paint is one of the best upgrades for your rental property. Choosing a neutral paint color will appeal to more tenants and make your rental property look newer and cleaner. 

While painting every room might seem daunting and time-consuming, you can always start with the more popular rooms, such as the living room, kitchen, and bathroom, and work your way up from there. 

Simple Landscaping 

Curb appeal is essential when marketing your rental property. If your property doesn’t look good online or in person when a potential tenant sees it, they are unlikely to sign a lease with you. Spring is the perfect time to brighten up the exterior of your rental property with some colorful blooms and fresh mulch. In addition, trimming back overgrown bushes and pulling unwanted weeds can help improve your property’s curb appeal.

New Doors

Doors tend to get overlooked when it comes to upgrading, but they’re often one of the items in your rental property that receives the most damage. Upgrading your exterior door will (literally) protect your investment by adding more security to your property and giving it a whole new look! You can also consider upgrading the doors inside to give your tenants some added privacy.

Stay On-Trend

If you don’t take the time to make modern upgrades and keep up with the latest trends, your property can look dated and deter potential tenants. Consider upgrading the light fixtures, flooring, and cabinetry/countertops to give your property an updated look. While these upgrades can be more expensive, they don’t have to be. Pick items that look high-end to stay within your budget.

In real estate investing, it’s important to stand out from the competition and maintain your property’s value to continue to succeed. If you have questions about which upgrades will give you the most bang for your buck, reach out to us anytime at (512) 947-1828 or
