You ever thought, that it’s hard being a landlord?
If you tried saying that to your friends, they’d laugh. House prices keep going up, tenant’s put money in your bank once a month – what’s the problem?
Well it’s not always as smooth as you think, we’ve got loads of lovely properties under management and even more absolutely great tenants.
But sometimes we take over a problem property, needing a refurb, and it’s our job to get some real value from our tradesman. Understanding a property, the demographics of the tenant and the area, is key to the type of refurb you do.
A general builder will just suggest what you need to do to make the property “nice” whereas a specialist lettings / refurb company knows what you need to do to get it rented. There’s a massive a difference from the colour / quality of carpets you use, the decor, type of kitchen and bathroom etc.
We’ve definitely got a “NGU” style which is often grey carpets and walls, a feature wall to make it stand out, mid-range kitchen and bathroom with tiling / plastic cladding to protect the wet areas.
This is all about getting longevity from the refurb – why pay twice when you can only pay once?
We did this recent refurb in under 3 weeks for ONLY £6.7k – plastering, handyman & materials, painting, vinyl & carpets plus a clean.
It’d been previously wrecked by some drug dealers, the area isn’t the best, and it was our job to turn it around within the landlords budget.
I hope you think we did a decent refurb see below 👇
