When it comes to modernizing and updating your home, you couldn’t take advice from a better source! Luckily we’re curating the month’s trends that we’ve noticed in Philadelphia every single month. This month’s trend? Philadelphia homeowners are replacing or renovating their homes or apartment buildings in order to sell or lease!
So how can renovating or replacing your windows and doors help you to sell or lease your place?
Your tenant's very first impression is going to come when they walk in the front door of their potential new home. They’re going to try to picture themselves going about their everyday lives there, and being happy doing so. By making sure your windows let in lots of light and your floor plan is open and airy, they’re much more likely to picture themselves living the life they want. Simply updating in general will do this as well—even just small updates.
Replacing can also provide the opportunity to modernize your space as well. Many people don’t realize just how large of a role your windows can play when looking to modernize your home or apartment. Contemporary and minimal design is a very big trend right now and is something a lot of potential tenants will be looking for. In addition to modernizing by replacing your windows, you can look into more modern flooring, cabinets, and counter tops. If you’re looking for smaller ways to modernize before you bringing in a new tenant, try updating the paint color of your home or apartment. Choosing a sleek, light gray or off-white with dark wood accents (such as window trim or flooring) can create a more contemporary feel to a home.
While providing updated and more modern living for a potential tenant will increase your chances of getting a good tenant, it can also allow you to increase the price of your rental as well. Good, quality products warrant good pricing and people are willing to pay for the best. Updating and renovating your home or rental can leave your new tenant, and you, with a big smile on your faces.
