Have you ever considered making a little extra money by renting out a room or, if you and your family are away for chunks of the year, your entire home? If so, you’ll be competing with other people who want to attract tenants to their rental properties. One way you can make your home more attractive to those looking to rent is by pursuing Tigard, OR window replacement. You can bet that doing this route will boost the value of your home as well as its attractiveness. Consider these ways that replacement windows can attract renters to your rental property:
Up the Curb Appeal
Replacement windows will improve the look of your home inside and outside. In terms of the exterior view, new windows will basically give your home a proverbial facelift. If prospective renters are looking for a home in your neighborhood, your residence will simply look more comfortable and livable if it has newer windows. Prospective buyers will likely check online to find rental properties, and you can bet that pictures of your home – with replacement windows – will increase the number of people who want to check it out. And while they say that you can’t judge a book by its cover, it’s also true that renters might not want to see the inside of your home if they don’t like what they see on the outside of your home.
Replacement windows with stronger locks will make for a safer rental property. You can communicate these benefits to people interested in renting a room or your entire home since the security benefits might not be obvious to the untrained eye. The security benefits are even more important to communicate if the rooms you’re renting out are on the ground floor. Renters, like everyone else, want to feel safe. If your rental property is safer, that’s a key selling point.
If renters will be responsible for paying their own utilities, then you can imagine that they’ll want to ensure that the energy efficiency of their rental property is good. A rental property with replacement windows will lead to lower energy bills at the end of the month. This is especially critical to people whose incomes don’t leave a lot of extra money at the end of the month. You can therefore make your rental property more attractive if you advertise that the replacement windows are energy efficient and will help to keep heating and cooling costs down.
