You can do a few things as a property owner to bring in guests consistently year-round. Even though there can be slumps or ‘down’ periods where the tourist influx is not as common, you can still make your house, apartment, condo, or cabin stand out by following easy rules and tips to add extra flair to your home. When you take advice from us at Porter, you can increase the chance of making your Oak Creek rental property stand out among the rest! Oak Creek is a beautiful area that offers proximity to all there is to do and see, such as close walking distance to local shops and proximity to hiking trails, biking paths, and rivers/lakes. Plus, when you include a few add-ons, amenities, personal touches, or other items to your property, you can make sure that visitors choose YOUR home over others in the nearby area!

Use a Fresh Coat of Paint

One of the best ways to make your property stand out among others in the local area is to give your property a new coat of paint. This helps brighten up the space and add a pop of color or neutral color tone that you wouldn’t find otherwise. Instead of hotels or Airbnbs which are old and worn down, a new coat of paint can help your luxurious and modern home seem fresh, new, and modern! You should also go around the entire house and figure out what might need to be fixed or altered during the paint job. This includes items like appliances, windows, doors, paintings, furniture, lighting fixtures, and other items that can make or break a space. We recommend fixing items on your own, if possible, like adjusting loose doorknobs or chipped paint. However, for bigger fixes, we recommend using a professional company or handyman who can do the fixes quickly and easily. Even though it may seem like small fixes that won’t make a big difference, ensuring things are working properly gives the customer the idea that you are a professional, attentive, and caring property owner who wants a seamless experience for the guests.

Clean the Space

The next tip that we recommend for your Oak Creek property to make your property stand out among the rest is to clean and declutter your house. Even if this is your private home and you want to include a personal touch, make sure your books, clothes, artwork, and decorations are not everywhere in the house. This can make the space look crowded, smaller, and messy. Instead, try getting rid of unnecessary items and putting them in storage. If this is a rental property or a second home for you, try and get rid of unnecessary personal items that can make the space look ‘too lived in’ or additional fluff.

Higher a Cleaning Company

Along with decluttering your Oak Creek rental property and removing unwanted items that can make the space seem smaller and messier, we recommend using a professional cleaning company to disinfect and clean your house. This includes cleaning the appliances, floors, counters, and linens. The last thing you want is for a new guest to enter the house and see dirt on the floor, food on the counter, or stains on the sheets. This makes the guest think the entire space is messy, and they will feel uncomfortable staying there. Instead, a professional cleaning company knows what to use and the correct procedures to get rid of dust, mud, dirt, grease, and cobwebs that can decrease a guest’s personal experience.

Upgrade Appliances

The next tip to keep in mind when it comes to making your Oak Creek property stand out among the rest in the local area is to upgrade your appliances so you can modernize your kitchen, freshen up your bathroom, increase the livability of your TV area, and other items that can modernize your home and make it more desirable for guests. Plus, if you modernize your apartment, home, or property, you can increase the nightly price of your house to make more money in the long run. This is a great investment which can increase the overall market value of your home to get better nightly prices. Even replacing just a few appliances or electronics, such as an old TV, microwave, oven, or stove, can have a huge increase on the price and desirability of the space.

Increase the Lights and Mirrors

Although adding more mirrors might seem like a strange request, increasing the number of mirrors in your Oak Creek property can make the space feel bigger. Plus, including full-length mirrors in bathrooms, bedrooms, and hallways gives people a chance to look at their entire outfit and avoid overcrowding and sharing rooms. This boosts the spaces’ flexibility and makes it more functional for when your guests are getting ready to go out on the town!

Plus, increasing the number of lights, windows, and bright spaces is an ideal choice for guests who want to brighten up the space and make it feel bigger than it already is. Dark corners, dark furniture, and low lighting often makes a house feel smaller and cramped. Adding a floor lamp, fairy lights, or a different lamp shade to let in more light can make your house feel cozier and prettier.
