Do you have a girlfriend or wife? Most likely, they are the ones who decide where you are going to live. They run the roost. You’re always going to try to live in the nicest and safest place that you can afford. But what men consider acceptable, women feel otherwise.

Today, I’m joined by my wife, Shelley, to talk about all things necessary when doing improvements on your property that get you paid. Do you do too little or too much? What should they look like? What does a unit refresh standard or upgrade require? Let’s take an imaginary tour to paint a picture of what your units should look like!  

Topics on Today’s Episode:

  • Replace cheap light fixtures, doorknobs, and other features to make the property appear fresh and nice
  • Develop a refresh standard of what a unit should look like (hinges, knobs, etc.)
  • Refresh standard does not cost much more money
  • Out-of-towners looking for an apartment shop via the Internet, so use marketing on the Internet
  • Small changes make renters/buyers feel at home, comfortable, and safe
  • Use common sense to solve 99% of your problems
  • Unit refresh standard typically only costs an extra $200-250, but the ROI is huge
  • Change out toilets, and always have a low-flow toilet available, which conserves water
