In order to have a successful property investment strategy, it's essential to be able to attract the type of tenants you're looking for.
Investing in real estate in Rockhampton provides many advantages – with access to the beautiful Capricorn Coast just 30 minutes away, Rockhampton also offers plenty of opportunities as the provincial capital of central Queensland.
However, those looking to rent property in Rockhampton will also form much of their impression of a property through the first few minutes of a viewing, so it's important to make sure your investment property is staged appropriately.
If your investment property is looking less than its best, it's worth considering whether any small renovations are able to be undertaken to help improve the look of the interior and exterior.
A new coat of paint is an inexpensive way to change the feel of a room, while new lighting or drapes, curtains and fixtures can also transform the way the property looks.
A blank canvas
It's important that your tenants are able to feel at home in your investment property.
To help them visualise what it would be like to live there, it's important to ensure that every room presents a 'blank canvas' – so try to avoid any personal touches or dated furnishings which could deter a potential tenant.
