Although it may be Winter right now, this year is flying by quickly and Summer will be here again before we know it.
Here in Queensland, we get some brutally hot Summer days, so it's no surprise that the modern tenant is willing to pay more money for rental properties that have ceiling fans and air-conditioners.
In fact, ceiling fans and air-conditioners are among the top key words used by tenants searching for rental properties on REA.
Although these additional features are certainly not mandatory, they add rental value to your investment property and will allow your tenants to feel more comfortable throughout the year.
During the Winter months, many contractors and stores will have promotions to make it more affordable to add in ceiling fans or air-conditioners to your investment. If you've been considering making these upgrades, Winter time would be the perfect time to do so.
If you would like us to arrange for a quote, or you would like an idea of how much rental value these additions could add to your property, please do not hesitate to contact us.
