Three Fast Ideas for Increasing Your Portland Oregon Rental Property Value
Are you searching for cost effective ways to increase the value of your Portland Oregon Rental Property? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
In today’s post we will share with you three simple tips you can use to increase the value of your rental properties.
Tip 1 – Start Painting
One of the best ways to increase the value of your Portland Oregon Rental Property is to start painting all of the walls on the inside of the home.
Tip – Before you begin painting it’s wise to invest in drop cloths and painters tape so you can easily tape off any electrical switches, outlets and baseboards to insure that you are able to do an effective job without getting drips or spills on your flooring or other areas of your rental property.
Tip 2 – Improve Kitchens and Bathrooms
Ask any property manager or Realtor ® and they will tell you that we spend the most time in kitchens and bathrooms so to capitalize on this knowledge why not invest money in these areas of your rental property?
Kitchen – Consider sanding and refinishing cabinetry (or repainting), replace flooring with vinyl or wood flooring, change counter tops with granite or quartz and replace the kitchen sink with a deeper farmhouse style sink.
Bathrooms – Change the flooring in each bathroom to vinyl or wood flooring (easier to clean and more sterile), remove tile counter tops and replace with granite or quartz then refinish the shower or tub combination.
Tip 3 – Replace Window Coverings
Last of all, but most important, replace those old window coverings with new drapes or blinds since the windows of your home will be the first things people see when they enter your property.
Tip – Don’t forget to clean your windows on the inside and outside! This is vital since clean windows add more light to any home and will keep your tenants happy.
