Keeping properties at their best ensures you’re getting the best rental amount achievable and minimises void periods. Over the years rental properties will show signs of wear and tear and we are offen asked when would be the best time to refurbish a property. This normally depends on the amount of tenants you have had moving in and out of the property as well as how the property was looked after. We recommend clients to refurbish their properties every 5-7 years which could include repainting and updating the flooring / furniture so as to ensure the property is looking its best and stays competitive in the open market.
