Building a property portfolio is a great investment. Whether you choose to sell on or rent your properties, the ultimate goal is to make money from them. In the latest blog post, A & J Painters and Decorators discuss top tips for adding kerb appeal to your rental properties to keep interest at a high.

First Impressions

First impressions count and many people form an impression within the first few seconds of viewing their potential home.

To ensure a good impression is made, make sure that you keep the front of the house tidy – no matter the size of the space. If you have a lawn, be sure to keep it well groomed. If you have very little space, consider using hanging baskets or pots to add decoration and a dash of colour and life to the area.

If a home looks loved from the outside, viewers will venture inside with a positive mindset, rather than be on the lookout for other things they don’t like.

Alongside the garden, make sure that any fencing surrounding the house is in good order. A fresh lick of paint can do the world of good and is a fairly quick and inexpensive change to make.

Colour Scheme

Most rental properties have a neutral colour scheme in order to appeal to a wide variety of tastes and styles. Tenants viewing a property are much more likely to be able to imagine their own furniture and belongings in the space if it is left neutral and impersonal.

Know Your USP

Whether your property benefits from a conservatory, a walk-in wardrobe or an ensuite, it’s important to identify your USP and show it off to its full potential. Remember, viewers of your property are likely to be viewing a variety of other properties, so make yours stand out.
If you’re unsure what the USP of the property may be, it could be something as simple as its age – is it brand new or does it have a history? – either way, be sure to highlight these points and show them off in the best way possible to ensure your house is remembered.
