Location is everything. Or is it? Great amenities and a solid first impression also go a long way. Here are a few things you can do to make your rental property stand out from the moment potential rentals pull up at the curb.
The yard is the first thing potential renters will see when they arrive for a showing or look at pictures online. To make the front yard look it’s best, pull the weeds, cut the grass and add some seasonal plants with color to make your place stand out.
Make the front door POP
Having a door that’s bright and well-maintained will immediately catch the renter’s eye. Not only does it give the place some character, but it also takes the focus off of potential negatives like a small yard or busy road. Try colors like red or teal if you’re feeling bold.
Update the house numbers
Having house numbers on that are shiny and easy to read makes the house appear new and up to date.This quick fix will improve your curb appeal and only take 30 min or less. Tip: get numbers that match the style of your house.
Open curtains and shutters
This costs no money and is a small detail that many people don’t realize makes a huge difference. Opening all shutters and inside curtains allows the home to appear welcoming, rather than closed off. It also helps the inside of your property appear bigger, since there’s more natural light coming in.
Add some outdoor furniture
Too much outdoor furniture can clutter your home’s appearance, while too little can make it look scarce or neglected. Try to find a good balance somewhere in the middle. Also be sure that all outdoor furniture you have is clean and in good condition.
