I'd like to know how I go about being approved for a rental property when I've not had any previous history? It is quite hard getting a start as the market is so tough. - Brandon

Best place to begin is on the road. Go out to a few open houses and meet the Property Managers. Depending on the area and type of property, they will give you some ideas on how to put your application forward. Also, don’t be afraid to take on a short term lease so that you can prove yourself.

Is it worth renovating my bathroom before I sell? Some people tell me that the purchaser will want to do it up themselves and it could be a waste of money. - Sammy

The condition of the bathroom will be the factor when selling. Consider whether the purchaser will be able to live with the bathroom as is and renovate in a year or two. If not, renovating may be the best option.
