Are you planning on renovating your rental property in 2018? If so, like most owners you probably want to choose the most cost-effective renovations, correct?
In this article, we will break down which renovations you should choose for your rental property.
Freshen Up the Paint
It doesn’t matter if you own a single-family home, condo, or town home, one of the most cost-effective renovations that you can make to your rental property is to update the paint.
When choosing new paint, it’s best to specifically choose neutral colors because sticking with a neutral color palate will resonate with a wider group of potential tenants compared to painting each room in your rental your favorite colors.
Thankfully, just about everyone can paint a house so you can keep your costs low by painting your rental property yourself. GWM recommend you use a professional for warranty purposes.
With more people preferring hardwood floors over carpeting and vinyl flooring these days you should consider changing the flooring in your rental property to all wood flooring.
Wood flooring has a classic look that never goes out of style, it’s also durable and very easy to clean for any tenant, especially those tenants who have small children or pets.
Engineering hardwood is also cost effective and it’s possible to buy flooring for as little as $1.59 / sqft. GWM recommend you use a professional for warranty purposes.
Improve Kitchens and Bathrooms
Since kitchens and bathrooms are two areas where everyone spends the most time you should focus on renovating these two areas of your rental property.
In both the kitchen and bathroom, you should focus on refinishing or repainting cabinetry, replacing old sinks and faucets and adding new knobs and handles to completely update the look of both rooms.
