We've finally got some good tenants in for almost 2 years. They don't complain, we self-manage. Usual issues of maintenance over the last few years such as fixing things, fix aircond, replace gas HWS, bathroom exhaust etc, install soakwells. Replaced carpets recently as they were in a state and we wanted to improve the look of the place, repainted as well. Got a list of things at the back of my mind, cost is issue (would rather do small bits at a time than say a complete kitchen reno). But when and how do you decide to do improvements to your IP? Is it when you think you can get a bit higher rent, or attract better quality tenants? No rent increase for over a year now (360pw), but looking around, its a fairly good rate. Some of the small things I'm thinking are like - install ceiling fans in bedroom, install BIRs and door. Would really like to put more cabinets in kitchen but kitchen overall needs an overhaul. Bathroom is average too.
