    Little Things Mean a Lot... of Money!

    You've heard the saying, "Genius is in the details." And nothing could be truer for rental properties. It's the little touches that can sway a prospective renter's decision... between property A or B.

    Here are some inexpensive improvements you can make to your rental property to increase its appeal - and value:

    1. New Front Door

      You only get one chance to make that first impression. If you have a cheap door, it cheapens the entire property. A nice door will set you back about $125. It's worth every penny!
    2. Tile the Entry

      Striking, yet inexpensive, ceramic tile is a huge step up from standard linoleum. An 8x8 area can be tiled for around $100.
    3. Paint the Trim

      If the interior doesn't need a complete paint job, paint the trim bright white for an updated look.
    4. Paint the Cabinets

      If you have outdated cabinetry, give it a fresh look with a paint job.
    5. Dress the Windows

      Install blinds or new curtains - and get a new look.
    6. Detail the Details

      Install new electrical switch plates, new door handles, a new shower curtain and rod...consider replacing faucets with closeout deals from your home improvement store.
