Six Ways to Show Your Waco Rental Home Some Love this February

We all know that February is the month of love. So, why not show your Waco rental home some love this Valentine season, too? Here are some easy, and inexpensive updates you can do to make your rental property more appealing to tenants. Best of all, these updates can also increase your rental home’s value – making them a must!

1.) Some fresh paint throughout your rental home will go a long way.

Painting your rental home is one of the least expensive ways to make it look up-to-date and attractive. Consider painting dark rooms a light, neutral color or including a bold accent wall. Tenants will appreciate the new look and feel since most are looking to move into a home that appears new and clean. A fresh coat of paint can accomplish just that.

2.) Find ways to make the space within your Waco rental home look bigger.

Believe it or not, something as simple as window treatments that allow more light to enter can make your rental home appear far more spacious. Plus, if you include a mirror opposite a window in a smaller room, the light will reflect throughout the room, increasing the size visually. Tenants will be impressed by how large the home feels, serving as a major selling point.

3.) Clean up your landscaping – curb appeal is important.

First impressions matter, so make sure your landscaping is clean and fresh. Rake up any leaves and tend to your lawn. You can also include some shrubbery and plants – both perennials and annuals – that will provide your Waco, TX rental home with a pop of color.

4.) Make these minor bathroom updates that net big returns.

By re-caulking your shower or tub and updating your vanity and fixtures, you can make the bathroom within your Waco rental home look brand new. Many of these updates are simple enough to do independently – with little effort and cost.

5.) Consider changing some of your appliances.

New brand-name appliances always look great. While they are a bit more expensive than other updates listed, tenants will almost always notice. Consider purchasing appliances that compliment your kitchen colors – sticking with stainless steel, black, or white, versus any with bold features. Models that are a step up from basic are always noticed and well received.

6.) Make your investment property energy-efficient.

Energy-efficient updates are a significant selling point for any property. Tenants appreciate when they see energy efficient appliances, LED lighting, and smart thermostats installed throughout the home. They not only make the property feel more modern but can help tenants save money each month.
