The bathroom is a room that all of your tenants are going to use, along with any guests they have over. It can have a significant impact on the overall impression you make on potential tenants. And, once tenants move in, they will want to impress their family and friends by having a nice bathroom to showcase. When you want to improve your rental's appeal, you cannot go wrong with desirable bathroom enhancements.
One of the easiest things to change is the faucet for the bathroom sink. Standard faucets have a hot and cold dial, as well as a stopper to prevent the water from draining. However, you can get a touchless faucet that allows your tenants to simply wave their hand in front of the sensor to start the water flow. Since these faucets are cleaner as it eliminates the need to use your hands, you can use that as a selling point.
If you are willing to spend a decent amount of money on a bathroom upgrade, you should consider a jetted tub. This is an ideal decision when you are looking to invest quite heavily in the rental property over time to transform it into more of a luxury rental, as opposed to just a standard rental. You can expect to spend a minimum of $1,600 on getting a jetted tub and having it installed. But, to give your tenants a low-maintenance tub, you want to pay enough to get one that comes with its own self-cleaning feature.
A simple and easy addition that you can make to your bathroom is a towel warmer. This is perfect for areas that get rather cold at night and during wintertime because warm towels are a nice luxury to have. Although you can find ones that are rather expensive, you can get one for your rental for as little as $60, and the installation for such a towel warmer typically only entails mounting it on the wall. But, to get one hard-wired for safety reasons, you can expect to pay an electrician somewhere between $100 and $250.
If you are going to have your tenants pay the water bill, which is perfectly fine, potential applicants will appreciate a dual-flush toilet that allows them to cut costs on their overall expenses. This addition is no more complicated to maintain or use than a standard toilet, yet it benefits the tenant greatly.
Making concrete plans before your rental goes vacant will allow you to optimize your remodeling time. This will help you quickly make impactful bathroom improvements and get it rented again.
