How Can You Improve Your Property's Interior?

A house’s exterior is only part of the story. You also need to make sure the inside is presentable as tenants start to imagine their day-to-day life on your property.

Here are some tips that can help you create a clean, tidy, and attractive interior:

  • Make sure all rooms—along with accompanying appliances, counters, cabinets, and fixtures—are spotless.

  • Clean the floors or carpets. Replace flooring that is stained, torn, or mildewed.

  • Make sure every appliance works.

  • Replace the window coverings if they are no longer in good shape. Leave the curtains or blinds open to allow natural light to come in during the visit.

  • Make sure the property has no ants or other pests.

  • Repaint the rooms if necessary, especially if the last paint job was done more than one or two years ago.

  • If a family with children is going to visit, remember to cover the power outlet. Keep the child out of dangerous areas such as swimming pools and stairs.

  • Make sure the smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector, and fire extinguisher are in place and in working condition.

  • You may want to add some nice furniture to help prospective tenants imagine themselves living in the property.

  • Put a pot of spiced apple cider on the stove, which is a tried-and-true trick to make the house smell good.

  • It’s always a good idea to replace the shower curtain with one that is brand new.
