It’s the little things that count.
You see it in all aspects of life – the big gestures are awesome, but its usually the little touches that save the day, such as using her favorite icing on her birthday cake or opting for one stem of her favorite flower rather than grand bouquet of something she only moderately likes. Attention to detail matters – that sentiment applies to preparing your home for rent as much as it does in anything you do. Here are some little things that you can do to make your home stand out above the rest:
Change the Knobs
It seems too simple, right? It is simple, but it’s true. Sleek door and cabinet knobs change the look of a room instantaneously. You can create a cosmopolitan vibe or an old fashioned motif with just this simple detail.
Install Ceiling Fans
These functional options not only help the renter save money in cooling, they also add to the flair of the unit. Contemporary styles exist as well as ones that are reminiscent of Southern charm. Match the ceiling fan to your doorknobs to maintain a consistent style.
Update Outdoor Lighting
Having floodlights is great, but motion detection lights are a great addition to your outdoor lighting scheme. They can help to deter unwanted guests and will make your new renter feel at ease. Solar lights that dot your landscape also have high curb appeal. They can make a manicured lawn really pop.
These simple additions and updates to your property can really make a difference in how well you stack up against the competition. The investment is low and you can install many of these yourself. The visual is stunning when completed. Your property will look coordinated and slick, which is exactly what potential renters are looking for.
