West Vancouver Property Managers work hard to match up the perfect tenants with the perfect property that will suit all their specific needs. Some tenants are looking for spectacular views and other tenants are more concerned about a spacious backyard area for their kids to play in. In West Vancouver, one of the most asked question is about school catchments. The schools in this area are among the top schools in the country. But the most important room in the house is always the kitchen.
If you own a property and are contemplating renting it out take a good honest look at your kitchen. Do the appliances need to be updated? Sometimes, the kitchen cupboards are enough to turn off potential AAA renters. It is surprising how little you have to spend to bring a contemporary modern look to the kitchen.

Check out these links below to see how easy it is to give your kitchen a quick a face-lift.
