Are you planning on turning your single-family home into a Beaverton Rental property? If so, like most owners you’re probably concerned about wear and tear at your rental property.
Wear and tear are a fact of life when you own a rental propert, but the good news is that you can easily prepare that property for wear when you ‘future proof’ it by following these simple tips.
Tip #1 – Choose Durable Materials Vs. Trendy Materials
Even though you may be tempted to install granite countertops and a stylish backsplash in your kitchen, the reality is that those features will cost more than durable materials and they may not last as long.
Focus on choosing durable materials each time you plan on investing in upgrades for your property and you will find that those materials cost less and last longer than trendy materials.
Tip #2 – Choose Neutral Floor And Wall Colors
Another way to ‘future proof’ your Beaverton rental property is to choose neutral floor and wall colors.
This tip is effective because it will save you the hassle of having to search for specific custom colors each time you have to repaint and most of all, your rental property will have a timeless appeal.
Also, when it comes to installing flooring, you should install hard surfaces next to entryways on the property. Doing this will help your tenants to keep the carpet clean and ensure that it will last longer.
Tip #3 – Choose Quality Light Fixtures And Bulbs
Last of all, but most important, another effective way to ‘future proof’ your property is to choose good quality light fixtures and bulbs.
Light fixtures can easily last 10-20 years so it’s best to invest in good quality fixtures that will last.
When choosing light fixtures for the bedrooms in your property, consider adding ceiling fans. Doing this will make it easy for your tenants to cool the rooms in the rental property without having to run the air conditioner.
