Tips to add Value to your Rental from Real Estate Agents in Geelong

Tips to add Value to your Rental from Real Estate Agents in Geelong

It is important to make sure that your Geelong rental is up to date so that your real estate agent can get you the best possible rental price. But what your Geelong real estate agents may not tell you is that there are a handful of easy ways to add value to your rentals in Geelong.

Real estate agents know that bathrooms and kitchens are a huge point of comparison for people looking for rentals in Geelong, so it’s important to keep them clean and looking new. One easy way to ensure your real estate agent can show off your bathroom with pride is by protecting your rental bathroom from the harmful mould. Replace old, moulded silicone by carving it out and filling in the gap with new silicone, or wash and regrout your tiles to give them that white, fresh look. At Fresh Property Management, we also suggest having a look at your shower head and taps, replacing them can be a cheap and cost-effective way to breathe new life into the bathroom of your Geelong rentals.

Kitchen Renewal

Real estate agents in Geelong can confidently say that kitchens can often make or break your Geelong rentals. But it can be expensive and time-consuming to redo an entire kitchen in your Geelong rental. As your Geelong real estate agent, we know that the most strategic move is replacing the countertop, or the cupboard doors and the sink. This is a lot cheaper and a much better way of bringing new life to your rentals in Geelong.

Lighting

All Geelong real estate agents know that lighting is central to making every house a home. Lighting is important to make a home feel alive, most real estate agents will jump to extra light fittings, but make sure it isn’t a simple case of giving your windows a good wash or cutting a tree back. Once you and your Geelong real estate agents have decided that it’s going to take more than that, consider new lighting in your Geelong rental.  

Check the light fittings, do they need a clean? Are they outdated? There is nothing worse than a Geelong real estate agent looking up to show a potential tenant the dirty, old light from the 1950s, which could’ve easily been fixed or replaced with a new one.

Flooring

Geelong real estate agents will be quick to tell you that your old, ragged and stained carpet needs to go. They will make your rentals in Geelong seem tired and worn. If your carpet is beyond a good steam clean, it might need to go altogether, but luckily in Geelong, many houses have floorboards hiding underneath which, once restored can be an easy and cost-effective alternative to recarpeting your Geelong rental.

If you’re unsure what else you can do or you need ideas, make sure to ask your real estate agents in Geelong, they will be able to suggest small changes for your home that will make a big difference. If you’re looking to add value to your Geelong rentals or need a real estate agent in Geelong, make sure you contact us here at Fresh Property Management.
