As I think about rental properties, I always think about ways to increase the positive cash flow and the return on investment(ROI). I know that there are certain amentity "extras" that tenants like such as appliances, a dishwasher, window blinds, new carpet and little things that are an attention to detail. For example, if a tenant requests a laundry washer and you do not normally provide one, you can then state you can provide a washer for an extra $25 of rent per month.
The tenant may agree for the convenience and the washer pays for itself in less than a year! Just factor in all the costs and make sure it does not increae your expenses if youy furnish utilities such as electric or water. You can even take this one step further because stores like the Home Depot may offer free financing on all appliance for up to one year. Thus, you are able to pay for the appliance each month with the extra rent. I hope this helps. Good luck with all your rentals. Believe and Achieve! - Joe
