When people start looking for their next home, they want to ensure they’re moving into a place they can be proud to call home. Multifamily properties have a wide range of tenants with different style preferences to appease. You want to ensure your property has the curb appeal to keep current tenants happy and attract new potential tenants to your property. But how exactly should you boost the curb appeal of your multifamily property?
Focus on the Details
It doesn’t matter if you have a single-family home or a full apartment complex; people pay attention to the smallest details of your property. If your windows haven’t been cleaned for a while, potential tenants walking by take notice and can make a snap judgment on how attentive you are to other issues that may arise. The exterior of the building represents the first impression people have, and you want to put your best foot forward for prospective renters.
For most multifamily properties, your exterior finishing can significantly affect how your current and future tenants view your property. Depending on your approach to your exterior, you can breathe new life into your property without undergoing extensive renovations.
Give Your Property a Fresh Coat
Renovations can help improve your property’s curb appeal; however, if you’ve recently undergone renovations in the past couple of years, your property may not have as many glaring areas where you can improve. If you still find your tenants unhappy or haven’t seen as many people come through the doors looking to rent, a new paint job can do wonders.
A fresh coat of paint can help give your multifamily property’s exterior a new lease on life. Changing the color scheme can help brighten up the building, making it more visible from the road and attracting more potential tenants with the new paint. Using waterproof paint will help it withstand the constant beating from the elements, ensuring you won’t have to apply another coat after the rainy season — only when you want a new change of pace.
Clean Up the Grounds
Not every solution for improving your multifamily property’s curb appeal revolves around new finishings or renovations. Sometimes all it takes is taking the time out of your day to ensure the grounds are in good shape. Cleaning up errant twigs, sweeping leaves in the fall, or providing your property management team has a good landscaper on retainer. These details can help make your multifamily rental property somewhere they can be proud of.
Give Your Siding an Update
Your property’s paint job isn’t the only exterior touch that can provide a cost-effective way of boosting your curb appeal. For most properties, something as simple as installing new siding can give your property a refreshed look without costing a fortune. Updated siding can also help insulate your tenant’s rooms and help keep your heating and cooling bills in check.
An additional benefit of siding comes from the customization options available to you. You choose wood siding and pair it with paint that matches the rest of your building. Vinyl siding also comes in an array of colors to align with the rest of your property. Depending on your intended style, you have endless siding options at your disposal, including:
