Considerations when rehabbing a rental

Recently I was reading something that suggested putting in crown molding and finer touches to a rental property. The purpose to attract quality tenants. The idea on the surface sounds good, we all want to attract quality tenants.

I suppose there are upscale rentals that this might make a lot of sense in.

My experience has been that many of these details are not that important to tenants. I'm sure that there are some tenants out there that will treat the rental like it was there home, but I haven't found many of these over the years.

I'm curious about other landlords experiences. Do you provide nice appliances for your rentals? Do you put in crown molding or other finer touches?

I work at providing a nice place at reasonable cost. There are many things that I don't put into rentals.

So what are your experiences? What would you consider when rehabbing a rental property?
