The rental market is fierce, and you need to stand out in this market. Lets start small and work into some larger upgrades that will make your rental stand out and rent quickly. The most affordable upgrade I can suggest is ceiling fans. We live in Florida and need air to be circulating at all times. They can be installed for around 150.00 each, and what a difference they make even during the showings. Appliance packages! Lord have mercy… want a home to rent quickly, throw in some new matching appliances.
