Landlords, it’s time to spring into action!

As winter slowly retreats, we see Dorset begin to spring back into life. With daffodils blooming, and trees regrowing their foliage, there is no better time to get out those marigolds and give your property the sparkle it deserves, ready to wow your future tenants and optimise your return on investment.


While Spring is bound to lend a hand toward improving the curb appeal of your property, always remember that first appearances really do count.  Here are a few tips that can help


Tip #1 Put yourself in the viewers’ shoes!

Starting at the front door walk around the property and make yourself a checklist of all the areas that need attention.

Tip #2 Time to pick up that Paintbrush

It’s now time to refresh that paintwork.  A lick of paint to the front door and a fresh neutral colour scheme throughout offers a versatile backdrop for any prospective tenant to consider what their furnishings may look like in situ.

Tip #3 Bring back the sparkle

Open the windows, let the fresh Dorset air flow through.  Give the property a good spring clean making sure those taps sparkle and those windows gleam. Be sure to replace lightbulbs that have lost their glow to make your home shine.

Tip #4 Kerb Appeal

Keep the path to the front door clear of any weeds or clutter.  A smart planter here and there demonstrates to any tenant considering your property that you care.

Tip #6 Time is precious

Managing a property can be a full-time job, one that you can probably do without if you have a busy lifestyle.  If you are time-poor, why not choose an Agent who will manage this for you.
