Some Dos and Don'ts of Refurbishing a Rental Property
Start off by thinking about who your target market is and build/renovate with them in mind. If you are targeting young professionals, you will need a good, clean high standard. If the property is in a family area, it may be worth focusing a bit more on the garden etc.
Try and create a very good blank canvass - aim to keep thinks white, clean and modern so that when people walk in they say "Wow". However you don’t want the design to be overpowering and to potentially put some people off. No purple walls!
The kitchen and living areas are the most important rooms - and often the rooms people see first
Kerb appeal is key- Make the front door and exterior and garden, if there is one, look smart and well turned out
Never start the renovation work without all the money for the build in the bank
