As a property owner you’ve worked hard to build your portfolio of rental properties but as you’re approaching retirement you’re starting to wonder why people who are searching for properties for rent in Portland Oregon are now longer submitting rental applications like they once did.
If potential renters are showing less interest in your rentals one of the reasons could be that your rentals are looking dated and driving potential renters away, instead of attracting and motivating them to fill out rental applications.
In today’s post we will cover 3 things you can do to improve the look of your Portland Oregon Rental and bring it back into the 21st century.
#1 – Modernize Your Kitchen
- Remove that old backsplash.
- Add subway tiles behind your stove.
- Replace outdated flooring.
- Choose stainless steel appliances.
#2 – Rehab the Bathrooms
Ask people who are searching for properties for rent in Portland Oregon and they will tell you that an updated bathroom is a priority on their list for the top things they are searching for in a rental property.
When updating your bathrooms make sure you also update the light fixtures with clear globe light fixtures since they add more light than older frosted or pendant fixtures and will continue looking great even 10 years from now
#3 – Update the Bedrooms
One of the easiest ways to update any bedroom is by painting that bedroom neutral colors but you should also consider painting one wall in each bedroom a bright color like yellow or green since this will help to bring in more light to the bedroom and help it to feel cheerful.
