Why a fresh decor can make all the difference to a buy-to-let investment

Although the very nature of a buy-to-let property implies transience, an investor would be advised to give their asset the same aesthetic attention that one would expect in their own home. That is to say, a fresh coat of paint on a regular basis – as well as a thorough deep clean between tenants – can make all the difference to a renter’s perception of the value for money they are receiving.

Encouraging regular vacation bookings

In the same way that good service in a restaurant will encourage a return visit, a buy-to-let vacation property that is well maintained and perceived as good value for money will be more likely to see previous tenants re-booking on a regular basis. Active maintenance and upkeep, however, can be an unwelcome imposition on an investor – which is why companies such as Pierre & Vacances Property Investment offer hassle-free management services to their clients.

Factoring the costs of regular upkeep

If an investor is wise enough to consider the costs involved in regular maintenance checks and decoration, they will also be likely to appreciate the value of delegation to their investment. By organising a service provider to regularly attend they will be able to arrange for the property to be appropriately maintained to ensure that their investment is successful.
