When designing & building an investment property you have a choice of finishes and design inclusions that will dictate the popularity of your home with tenants and property managers. It may be these differences that set you apart in the marketplace, ensuring longer tenant retention and higher return on your investment with a higher rental value.

1. Curb Appeal.

How do you get a great look from the curb for a new home... with not much in the way of a garden? Simple... it's the composition of elements. Letterbox/entry statement, one significant planting and an attractive path to the front door. Ideal compositions include curves, contrast, alternative textures and colours. Curb appeal can add thousands to the market value of your investment property.

2. Entrance Appeal.

The front door quality, it's size and the entrance size dictate first impressions, after curb appeal. Get this right and you and your tenants are more excited and delighted with the home. Nice entrance features include wall recesses for art or sculpture, feature lighting and a change of wall texture or colour. A good entrance design allows for a choice of flow through the house. Ideally direct to living, but not without 3 steps or more, and also a choice of a bedroom or study direction.

3. Open Plan Living.

Who doesn't want a living/dining/kitchen connection? One big open space ensures good family communication, and a sense of enlarged luxury space. Open plan living and kitchens often dictate the perceived value of a home, so spend some time to get it right.

4. Superior Kitchen.

Everyone loves stone benchtops or caesar stone/composite equivalents. An extra $3,000 makes a huge difference to a kitchen's impact and appeal in the marketplace.

5. Connection to outdoors.

Ensure the living areas open directly to the yard and a semi enclosed indoor/outdoor living area. Every Australian home should have this. It's what our climate demands and our lifestyles crave. Of course allow for the BBQ area, and casual dining.

6. Ducted Air.

Go the extra mile with a ducted system, instead of room by room split system airconditioners. this gives a luxury appeal to tenants. Plus the efficiencies of a whole house system are now better from a power consumption point of view, than several small systems.

7. Security screens, flyscreens, and window dressings.

Of course these all add to the finished look of the place, but it means additional comfort & security for tenants, and they really do appreciate that.
