Updated Your Flooring
Flooring is a major consideration for many renters and is one of the first things people notice when looking at an empty unit., But it can also be tricky knowing what the best option in flooring will be. The main debate is hardwood or plank vinyl versus carpet. Carpet often needs to be replaced after every couple of renters due to stains, wear and dirt. This can get expensive.
Most renters actually prefer a hardwood-type floor that seems cleaner and more modern. You can even go for a mix with carpet in the bedrooms and other flooring throughout the rest of the unit. Wide plank floors are currently the most popular remodeling option.
Replace Bathroom & Kitchen Fixtures
This is one of the best ways to update the look of a rental unit quickly and easily. High quality, energy efficient light fixtures, ceiling fans, faucets and door handles will be noticed by potential tenants. Having higher quality fixtures will also provide better durability and lower energy costs. These are simple things to fix that do make an impression.
Old linoleum in the kitchen? This is one of the fastest ways to lose a potential renter. One of the most important things to renters, whether they know it or not, is the look and condition of the kitchen and bathroom countertops. Go with quartz or granite for instant appeal. Or, if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option like solid surface of new laminate. Nowadays, even laminate countertops can be made to look like high-end materials, and they are much cheaper to replace if damaged.
Appliances & More
Some other major areas to consider are the appliances and cabinetry. Many renters want modern cabinets in the kitchen as well as energy-efficient appliances that look great as well as cut down on their energy bills. Not to mention, old, mismatched appliances will not get you top dollar in rent and they can lead to more hassle down the road with constant maintenance calls.
