Matt and Lisa and their two teenage children, live on the top two floors of their 3-story semi detached Victorian house. To subsidize their income, they rented out the main floor unit, but that didn't work out so well and they have left the space vacant since their last tenants left 2 years ago. The apartment is definitely suffering from neglect and now they're ready to upgrade it so they can put it on the short-term rentals market for part of the year and leave it available and wheelchair accessible for Lisa's brother who is paraplegic and visits for business and pleasure regularly. Lisa and Matt feel they have all the space they need in the upper unit and the lower one is wasted if left unrented. They're ready to invest in upgrading to attract the sort of tenant they'd like ? a professional short-term renter. As is, it feels more like student party headquarters than a visiting professor's charming pied a terre - it's wasted potential and lost revenue. They need Income Property's help!
