Renovations and ensuring maintenance is done as required can be a guard against vacancies. These can also increase your cash flow. An important factor in any investors thinking.

The best rentals are always kept in the very best condition and are more likely to attract the best tenants. A well-thought-out renovation will invariably lead to an increase in the rental value of your investment. Ten dollars a week may not sound like a lot however over a period of 2 years, soon adds up.

Upgrade renovations to consider include:

  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens
  • A new paint job
  • Enclose the yard with fencing
  • Curtains and blinds
  • Air-conditioning
  • Security systems
  • Cosmetic upgrades such as new door furniture or light fittings

Tenants will inevitably pay more for a brand new rental property however a really good renovation or upgrade to existing fixtures will still be able to compete.
