Top Tips to Transform a Property on a Low Budget!👏

How to get better tenants or more rent…

What’s your number one goal in property?

  1. To see your house price increase in value?

  2. To provide a nice place to live?

  3. To receive your rental income each month?

  4. Etc. 

My number one goal is to make money from property, not because I don’t care about my tenants or that I don’t want to provide a nice place to live but if I don’t pay the mortgage none of this will happen.

That’s also the ethos we bring to our letting agency, without landlords making money we wouldn’t be in business for very long. Sadly most letting agents don’t understand this and only see things from their own perspective.

At the moment we’re in the biggest inflationary spiral I’ve seen in my lifetime.  The cost of energy is astronomical and everything is increasing in price from food, to petrol, to even the clothes on your back!

That’s why sometimes a budget solution is often required.  A lick of paint and professional clean can often make the difference when selling or letting a property.  A clean, fresh-smelling property with new decor can often hide an old kitchen or bathroom.

There are certain tricks you can do, like giving your doors a boutique feel, feature walls, replacing your kitchen cupboard doors, adding nice handles etc. etc.  All of this doesn’t cost a lot, doesn’t take a lot of work and can either mean your property lets for more or in a quicker timeframe. 

Chris, our refurb director, recently refurbed a property for a limited budget, doing a bit of painting and adding a lovely lampshade!  This helped us to achieve a higher rent than we expected.
