As an investment property owner, it is important to consider the kind of impression your rental makes and the kind of people it attracts. While your property manager does everything possible to screen tenants, you need to show through your investment the kind of tenants you expect.
A home that is run down and does not have amenities functioning properly kind of puts out the idea that you have no pride in your investment and that you don’t respect the tenants who would reside there. How then could you expect your tenants to care for your investment?
Providing a home that looks beautiful and that functions well asks those that live inside to take care themselves. When prospective tenants view the property, it shows that you will maintain the premises so they can enjoy their living space. It shows that if something were to go wrong then you would have it remedied, just as you should.
With this in mind, you need to consider what can be done in your rental that will improve the overall appeal and functionality of the home. Of course, the obvious answer is in valuable kitchen renovations. Often the focal point of a home, the kitchen is where all meals are prepared and many hours of spending time together happens. This is where you should start.
Top tips on decision making
If you are unsure whether or not you need to renovate the kitchen, here are some things to consider and questions to ask yourself.
Sinks, taps and running water
It is absolutely imperative that your sinks and taps are in perfect working condition. Running water plays a vital role in the kitchen; if taps are not working properly or there is damage to the sink, it’s time for a change.
Electrical and gas
There is no doubt here. Any electrical or gas items that are not working properly such as ovens and cook tops absolutely need to be replaced. When these don’t work properly, they pose a safety issue to your tenants and potential for much more expensive problems than a kitchen renovation.
Size and style
Neither of these are ‘must fix’ topics like the previous two although when it comes to aesthetics, a cramped and outdated kitchen can make a big difference to the feel of a home.
If you are already considering renovating the kitchen then let this be another reason to do it. Kitchens that have a more spatial feel and that are modern will look fantastic and are often something the residents are proud of and keen to keep clean.
