Reduces your unit’s maintenance costs:
A freshly renovated unit will have much fewer maintenance needs since most things will be new. The cost of renovating is around 20% less because it is efficiently done all at the same time. No more multiple expensive one-off maintenance trips. This also potentially adds value to your property. A general rule of thumb for multifamily is for every $100 per month you are able to reduce your operating expenses, your property value increases by about $20K.
Increases property value (and rent)

Thus, likely increasing your property value by at least $30K plus you still get likely hood of reduces expenses and the increased rental income!
