7 Tips… for a more rentable property

By Franca Petrucci

So what are some of the most common things that often need repair or replacing around the property?

TIP 1: Repairs to any holes or cracks

Have them filled and sand the surface area back, then re-paint. Nice, quick and simple.

TIP 2: Replace washers in dripping taps

Why leave it and potentially have to pay excess water charges? Changing the washers in the taps is often all that is required.

TIP 3: Clearing blocked sinks

Quite often blocked pipes have plastic access caps that unscrew so that blockages can be accessed; if this is not possible then a plunger is the next best option. If this is still unsuccessful then caustic soda can be used to flush the system out.

TIP 4: Fresh coat of paint

Always a sure fire way to freshen any room up.

TIP 5: Re-grout tiles in bathroom or kitchen

When the grouting in your bathroom or kitchen is filthy or mouldy it looks horrible and dirty. Replacing the grouting between the tiles is a quick, cheap and easy way to brighten up the area and give a fresh clean new look.

TIP 6: Replace flyscreens

Replacing the flyscreens in your windows and doors can make your property look and smell cleaner instantly.

TIP 7: Recoat floor polish

Whether it be polished floor boards inside or outside decking areas, a fresh coat of polish (or oil on the deck) changes the look of the floor completely.
