A compelling way to convince prospective renters that your Spokane property is worth renting is by revamping its curb appeal. After all, the curb is one of the most prominent features of your asset. If it is dull, shabby or run-down, quality prospects will bypass it and move on to view others. So, how do you ensure your curb appeal remains beautiful, inviting and tenant-ready? Here are some practical solutions.
7 Curb Appeal Tips:
Keep the property clear
Nothing rebuffs potential renters or buyers faster than a dirty, littered property. In fact, most of these prospects will not even bother getting your phone number, let alone talking to you. Many homeowners mistakenly fail to keep the property clean believing that the shoppers will understand the place is uninhabited. Help your property get a new occupant quickly by removing litter, fallen leaves, twigs, worn out furniture pieces, old appliances and any other unsightly items from the lawn, patio, porch, drive, and pathways.
Wash the exterior surfaces
It is not just enough to keep your property junk-free. You further need to clean it and give it that striking allure. In most cases, the only reason your Spokane rental property might seem old and deserted is the accumulation of dust and stains. Luckily, with the help of a pressure washer you can restore your property’s fascinating look in no time. If you plan well, a weekend should be sufficient for you to give your property the makeover. Use the pressure washer to remove the chalky flakey dust coating from the exterior walls, as well as, oils spills and stains from the path and driveways. (more…)
