Renovation basics:

  1. Kitchen Renovation: The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, so investing in its renovation can significantly increase your property’s appeal. Open-plan layouts, functional design, durable flooring, and quality benchtops are key elements. Additionally, adding modern conveniences like dishwashers can further enhance its desirability.
  2. Bathroom Renovation: Like kitchens, bathrooms are essential areas that tenants prioritise. Opting for practical flooring, proper waterproofing, and mold-resistant paint ensures longevity and minimises maintenance issues. Simple upgrades like new shower screens and tapware can also freshen up the space without breaking the bank.
  3. Adding a Bedroom: Increasing the number of bedrooms can expand your potential tenant pool and enhance your property’s rental value. Whether it involves dividing existing spaces or extending the property, adding a bedroom offers versatility and attracts tenants seeking extra living space.
  4. Heating: Compliance with heating requirements not only ensures legal adherence but also enhances tenant comfort and satisfaction. Heat pumps are efficient and versatile options that provide both heating and cooling functionalities, making them attractive features for renters.
  5. Small Changes: If you are short on time and budget, you can still give your rental a facelift that can boost its appeal and your rental return. Repainting, changing curtains, light fittings and tapware, for example, can quickly refresh a room, add appeal, and decrease the days your property is on the market and not earning a return.

Before embarking on any renovations, it’s essential to assess their cost-effectiveness and potential return on investment. Understanding your market’s rental rates and tenant preferences will help prioritise renovations that offer the highest value. By strategically investing in renovations that improve functionality, aesthetics, and tenant comfort, you can increase your property’s rental yield and attract quality tenants.
