All over South Florida, condos seem to be going up in record numbers. The demand for them is booming. Many individuals are purchasing condos, to give prospective individuals interested in renting an alternative to rental communities. Purchasing a condominium as an investment property can be a wise investment. However, there are some tips to consider when it comes to using them as a rental property. One important aspect is the flooring type you decide to use.

Your Flooring Is an Investment for Your Investment Property

The flooring you choose can have a tremendous impact on your investment property. What you decide to use should be a reflection of the location the investment property is in, as well as the overall value of the property. It is important to keep in mind that, when renting, a tenant may treat the property as a whole differently than what they would if it were their own. This includes the overall care of the floor. When you select the right type of flooring, you can guard yourself against having to invest and reinvest in your property over and over again, which can cut into your overall property gains over time.

  • Decide on your pet policy, and stick to it: Should you decide to allow pets in your investment rental property, it is important to choose the right type of flooring. You may not want to use hardwood floors if you are allowing pets. Additionally, make sure to require a pet deposit that is large enough to cover the cost should the flooring need to be cleaned or replaced.
  • Tan or brown for carpets: Tan and brown carpeting has the ability to mask stains and spills more easily. It also tends to stand up better against the obvious sights of natural wear and tear over time.
