They only need to be fixed up as nice as the neighborhoods they are in. You don't want to deck out a rental to the nines if the neighborhood is not a great neighborhood. This is not to say you should use cheap materials. You want your materials and infrastructure to last. But I would NEVER but granite and stainless steel in the kitchens of my rentals.
I would never put real hardwoods in.. my rentals are not in high end neighborhoods.
@Chris Lynch for sure i never do those things except refinish hardwood if already there and able to do so. I feel like electrical,plumbing and flooring and walls and waterproof everything and make stable and good but not go to far like making where we wont have to touch for another 20 years at last. Feel like when i dont do it right the first time i have to come back and continue to do the stuff i skipped the first time trying to save a buck and i think will pay off in the long run. Whats every one think?
