Renovation Tips for your First Rental Property!



Renovating your Property

- This will be a rental! BUY/HOLD property!

- Renovations don’t need to be luxurious.

- Don’t over do renovations for area!

- Keep costs down but make sure it looks nice and clean and will appeal to an average renter.


Renovation Tips

PAINT

- Get cheap paint

- White or Light greys (neutral tones)

- Paint everywhere for a fresh/clean look

- "Oops" Paint from hardware store will be discounted


Flooring

- Buy inexpensive laminate flooring

- Luxury Vinyl Plank

- NOT real or engineered hardwood (no need for a rental)


Light Fixtures

- Relatively Cheap

- Don't redo electrical and put in can lights

- put in a "statement" fixture in kitchen/living/dining area


Kitchen

- Look at resurfacing or painting cabinets

- Paint cabinets white or grey

- Appliances

- Buy ding and dent or open box!

- Counter tops, sometimes a clean countertop is a nice countertop.

- Don't immediately replace for granite if in good shape.

- Cheaper option could be wood or wood veneer countertops.

- A nice backsplash will distract from an older countertop


Bathroom

- Flooring, cheap laminate or vinyl flooring or a tile

- Buy a cheap vanity online or from hardware store


Should be able to get done everything done for under 10K if it is a starter property (Smaller)


- If you live there for a year keep saving and slowly renovating and should be able

to complete renovations in 1 to 2 years!


- INSTANT EQUITY IN PROPERTY BECAUSE OF RENOVATIONS!!!!
