  • Goal — Maximize sale price / minimize costs.
  • Where do you start?
  • Will the floor plan be more efficient?
  • How much will it increase sale or rental price?

How to proceed when your next rental property acquisition has worn out carpet, tired paint and an ugly bathroom.

  • What is the best approach if you hold 1, 5 or 10 years?
  • What is the cost for each tenant turn over?
  • How much time will it take?
  • What is your labor plan?  Contractor, trades, low cost laborer?

  • Who can offer advice on how to approach the project?
  • Who can show how the project will look when finished?
  • Is it a load bearing wall?
  • Is there a better way to approach the project?
