One of the best ways to avoid vacancies and attract guests is to renovate your property. However, renovation services can be quite expensive, and since you’re trying to make money off of renting your property, you need to be sure you’re spending a reasonable amount.

How to Choose Renovation Services for Your Vacation Rental Property on a Budget

In order to stay on a budget, you need to pick and choose which areas need the most attention. Here are some tips for choosing the right renovation services when you’re on a budget:

  • Focus on the kitchen and bathrooms. Because of the various activities that take place in the kitchen and bathrooms—including cooking, washing, and grooming—guests spend a lot of time there. They are sure to notice if the countertops or cabinetry are out of date. They’re also looking for cleanliness in these spaces, so fixing any stains or water damage is important.
  • Freshen up the paint. Painting is an easy and cost-effective way to make a property look brighter and newer. To save money, decide which rooms need new paint and which ones don’t. Choose a simple paint colour like white to appeal to the widest range of guests. It’s also smart to keep extra paint on hand so you can touch up imperfections when necessary. Painting the exterior of the vacation rental property will also attract guests by making a good first impression. Consider hiring painters for a high-quality, quick job.
  • Install durable flooring. No potential guest wants to see (or smell, for that matter) questionable stains in an old carpet. Updating your flooring to something more durable such as vinyl, laminate, or tile will put potential guests at ease. It will also make it easier for them to keep a clean floor, and it probably means less maintenance for you in between guests.
