New York Buildings - Property Management Attention New Yorkers:

Now that Spring is finally here, it’s the perfect time to enhance the appearance of your residential property. Whether you own an apartment complex, condominium or co-op in New York, the curb appeal of your building will have a lasting impression on potential buyers or renters. In this post, we are going to share a few tips to help get you started.

Think ‘De-personalization’

The key to impressing potential buyers or renters is to make people feel at home from the moment they step foot into your apartment unit. In fact, they should feel at home from the time they walk into the lobby of your building. As far as the living space, make sure you remove anything that resembles the previous tenants, especially if they are still living in the unit.

Make sure you empty out all garbage containers and remove family photos. Don’t forget to de-clutter by getting rid of mail, personal documents, etc. People should be able to visualize themselves living in the home.

Polish Mirrors & Clean Windows

First impressions really matter, so make sure the windows of your apartment building are professionally cleaned. The mirrors within the apartment unit should be well polished. Don’t forget to have all of the lighting fixtures and other types of fixtures polished.

Upgrade Lighting

If your potential tenants will be viewing your apartment during the evening, make sure the apartment has adequate lighting. Illuminate dark hallways or any area of the home that lacks lighting. Lighting is not only important for intensifying the beauty of a home, it is essential for safety.

Greenery & Flowers

Consider adding beautiful green plants and flowers by the entrance way of your building and inside of the lobby. In the apartment, you may want to add a lovely flower plant inside of the kitchen and place a nice floral arrangement on the dining room table.
