After the winter your rental property is likely to have taken a bit of an aesthetic hit from the weather. Spring cleaning is always a good idea, no matter how old your rental is. Upgrading your rental after Spring will add value to your property and your tenants will be happy that you’re taking care of anything that needed fixing after winter.
Clean the Carpets
Clean carpets instantly spruce up the interior of your rental! Your carpets are probably full of dirt and salt after people have been walking all over them in their boots all winter and could use some extra care. At the end of each winter, it’s best practice to have your entryway carpets cleaned as well as any carpets in the hallways.
Add a Coat of Paint
Adding a fresh coat of paint is an easy way to brighten up your rental after a harsh winter. Check for any chips on your walls and baseboards and go from there. You can also take this time as an opportunity to change the colours and make everything a bit more modern.
Take a Drive
Sometimes you don’t know what your property needs because you’re too familiar with it. In order to change your perspective, you can take a drive around your property to determine its curb appeal and any upgrades you think it needs.
After you’ve decided what needs to be updated and you’ve made the required changes, double check to make sure everything is done properly and that your rental is looking its absolute best.
You can also start offering your tenants the option to pay their rent online. This means that they can pay their rent from anywhere this summer. Find out how RentMoola can make paying rent rewarding for you and your tenants.
