Curb appeal and why it matters.
The first thing to think about is the curb appeal and how your Issaquah rental looks as people drive up. This is very important if you are going to be advertising for a new tenant. Cut back overgrown bushes and scrubs, or even remove them. The same is true for trees. Mowing, edging and weeding will do wonders for your Issaquah property rentals curb appeal.
Clean the exterior of your home.
Very few landlords consider cleaning the exterior of their rental property. This included cleaning the roof, gutters both inside and out, siding and pavement. You’ll be amazed at the difference, in some cases making the home look almost new again.
Painting both inside and out.
If it’s been a while since your Sammamish rental property has been painted perhaps now is the time. Exterior paint provides protection from the elements and adds to the overall attractiveness of the home. Between tenants is the time to either do a whole interior paint or at least touching up.
Upgrading the appliances
If your appliances are old and breaking down then it may be more cost effective to replace them. Prospective tenants will rent a home sooner and for more money with new appliances and current tenants may stay longer.
There comes a time in every rental property when the flooring needs to be replaced or finished. It’s a big expense and should only be done when vacant. But tenant will pay more rent for a rental property that has good flooring.
