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.
