Summer is the season for vacations and relaxation. It also offers more time for Williamsburg rental property owners to examine and look for possible needed updates and repairs. Costly repairs are not a must today. Small repairs are possible and they can bring out more improvements than they cost.
Fixing up your Williamsburg rental home for either a new resident or a long-term tenant is an efficient way to increase the value and worth of your property. Not only can you better the aesthetic look but also, most importantly, the safety features of your home. These are guidelines that can sum up your summer repair checklist.
Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
An example of an inexpensive touch up is a new interior paint. It can freshen up worn out walls and can fill up cracks that build up over time. This can bring up front the property keeping expectation of the owner to the new residents. This can also leave a message of good intentions from the owner that he cares for their comfortable stay. Painted walls are prone to worn out if not maintained properly. This decreases the 7-year lifespan of the paint making touch-ups more frequent.
Adding a new interior paint can boost the value of your Williamsburg property that would more likely result in more satisfied tenants. Tenants tend to personalize the house with their sense of style. Neutral colors will greatly be of great help since it imparts a “blank canvas” look that can be paired easily with almost anything.
Replace Your Front Door
Front doors can make or break a first impression of the house. It is the welcoming component of the home and it holds the main line of defense from outside. A new front door will not only improve the worth and curb appeal but more importantly, it improves the quality of security. Installing a new door must entail proper alignment and fixture for it can greatly affect energy usage within the house.
Maximize Your Lighting
Energy usage is quite an issue today. It is encouraged to use energy efficient gears to properly manage energy consumption. Light fixtures must be thought about and examined to help decrease utility bills. Light fixtures must be in proper condition both inside and out of the house to ensure proper room usage and security at the same time. In warmer areas, light fixtures in houses are coupled with ceiling fans to help cool and light a room side by side. In these areas, ceiling fans are vital and can be a determining factor whether or not a house will be occupied.
Basic Plumbing Maintenance
Some of the most used items in the house are faucets and toilets. They are subject to frequent wears and tears the same with other light fixtures and must be checked regularly to avoid larger repairs to be needed in the future. New faucets and toilets can help update an outdated house with new styles available in the market. A house cannot serve its purpose without functional fixtures. Small repairs and updates can greatly improve functionality without the expensive cost.
