When to Paint Your Rental Properties

Posted on August 15, 2019

Marlborough, MA Rental Property Painting

Few things improve the curb appeal of a rental property like exterior paint. Interior paint can also change the look and feel of a rental property. Whether you're renting an expansive office building or a series of homes, follow these guidelines to determine when you need a fresh coat of paint on the walls or siding of your rental property.

Check for Damage

Before you hire a professional painter to upgrade your rental properties, inspect the siding for damage. Your rental property exterior could have chips, cracks, or broken pieces of siding that need to be replaced before painting for proper weather protection. Interior walls and ceiling should be inspected for smoke damage, water damage, or excessive cracks and chips.

Consider Your Market Value

What is the return on investment for painting your rental property? If you have long-term renters, would they be willing to take a price increase for the new look and protection of painting? An empty rental property could attract more renters with an updated look. If your property is looking particularly old, faded, and chipped, you may be surprised at the additional value added to your rental property.

General Painting Timeline

In general, plan on touching up or completely painting your home every time a lease ends. Each new tenant deserves a fresh, new coat of paint on the interior walls. Exterior paint can last up to seven years, but should be reviewed every five years to ensure a consistent coat.
