Lately, I have been pretty busy with renovating apartments. We purchased some apartment buildings when we moved to here. I manage all the properties, and my favorite part is doing the renovations.

Here are some before and after shots…

Utilizing, a more modern color palate, and updating the appliances make a big difference. We want our tenants to be happy where they are, and have modern amenities. Once the apartment is ready, I list it, and wait for the right tenant that will fit into the complex. All the other tenants want a neighbor that is considerate of others, so I factor that into the equation too.




Color Scheme

One of my favorite aspects of owning property is the renovation. When someone moves out, I like to make the rental look new and fresh for the new family that will live there. After I view the layout of the place I select colors that I believe people will enjoy. Gone are the days of “navajo white” for everything. People that are renting want something fresh and new. I try to put myself into the place of a perspective tenant. A modern, clean, and updated place is something desirable. I want tenants to be happy, and enjoy their space. Here is my latest updated space…
