Improve curb appeal

Update appliances

Look to keep appliances matching and in good condition. Be sure they are installed and vented properly and maintained.

Keep up on maintenance and repairs

Regular maintenance is important as it keeps down on big issues and surprised down the road.

Add value

New interior/exterior paint, new flooring, updated kitchens and bathrooms, energy-efficient appliances, etc.

Keep competitive with the market

Know the current market and market values and stay competitive. Know how aggressive you are wanting to be and how quickly you want your home leased. Keep in mind price points for searching criteria as well.
