Are you having trouble attracting tenants to your property? You may want to improve your curb appeal. You see, when potential renters drive past an apartment or house that’s for lease, they want to imagine themselves living there. If your property is unkempt and isn’t attractive, potential renters may feel unwelcome. You want your investment property to stand out.
In this blog post, we’ll look at simple ways you can improve your curb appeal and help make your property more attractive to renters.
Flowers are not only aesthetically pleasing but many are very fragrant too. Surround your property with a pretty flower bed using a mix of native plants with attractive scents to make it appear more inviting.
Trim Shrubs and Trees
Do you have vegetation growing out of control? Hire a professional to correctly trim back your trees and shrubs. This will allow more natural light into your property and make it appear bigger.
Add Outdoor Lighting
Landscape lighting will allow your beautiful landscape to shine both day and night and provide safety. Landscape lighting will also add a tremendous amount of value to your investment property. For energy-efficiency, you could consider solar lights or LED bulbs.
Install Underground Sprinklers
Watering the lawn is one less chore a renter would have to do, potentially increasing their interest in your property. Underground sprinklers also help keep your grass lush and your flower thriving. They may also help increase a property’s value.
Create outdoor seating areas
If you run an apartment complex or duplex, does your property have outdoor seating available? Adding comfortable outdoor seats will enhance the property’s value. Some options for outdoor seating include benches, porch swings, picnic areas, and patio furniture.
Hire a Professional Landscaping Company
If you’re working to improve your property’s curb appeal, but you simply don’t have the time, hire a professional landscaping company like Grasshoppers to perform the design and maintenance for you. Since many rental agreements come with landscaping in their leases, now would be an opportune time to build a relationship with a landscaper you like.
