Make a Good First Impression on Future Tenants

Your property’s exterior is how you represent yourself as a landlord to your neighborhood and future tenants. First impressions leave a lasting impact when advertising your space to potential new renters and can make or break your rental listing. A fresh coat of paint is an instant make-over for a house, apartment or condo. Maintaining the exterior of your rental will drastically improve the likelihood of people inquiring about vacancies.

Increase the Curb Appeal of Your Rental Property

A tenant is likely to feel comfortable paying more for their housing when rental property owners actively invest in increasing the appeal of the property. Potential new renters are out there right now, eager and searching for their new dream home. Does your property stand out from other rental options? Maintaining the exterior of your rental will help distinguish your space from all the other places available on the market. 

Houses built with different materials require exterior repainting at different times. Chances are if you have owned and have been renting out a property for a number of years and have never repainted, it is time.

How Often Should You Paint The Exterior of Your Rental Property?

  • Brick – Every 10 to 12 years
  • Stucco – 6 to 8 years
  • Aluminum Siding – Every 6 years
  • Wood Siding –  5 to 7 years

Protect Your Investment by Maintaining the Exterior Paint

Too often, maintaining the exterior paint of your rental property is seen as an unnecessary expense instead of a valuable investment. The reality of it is, the integrity of the look of your property is going to be important today and for as many years as you want to rent out your space. 

You want your property rentals to be as profitable as possible, and that means getting noticed for the right reasons. A high-quality exterior paint job will bring your property more attention from potential renters and notoriety with your current tenants. When you invest in maintaining your property’s presentation, your tenants are likely to do the same.
