Basic Renovation Projects for New Property Investors
August 8, 2019
Most property owners want to find ways to improve the value of their home. Yet, upgrades that are great for home buyers aren’t always the most appropriate solution for investors, particularly for those who are new to the real estate market. At ADM Rolloff, we proudly offer quality dumpster rentals for local home and business owners. We’ve helped countless clients stay safe and organized while performing their renovations, clean outs and construction tasks. We want you to be just as successful with your goals as well. Here are some ways you can update your rental house quickly and affordably, while maximizing the return on your investment.
Dingy, damaged garage doors can quickly ruin the visual design of your property’s exterior. Thankfully, today’s market offers a wide range of styles for affordable prices. A simple replacement provides a fast and economical way to instantly increase your curb appeal.
Build a Deck
Building a basic wooden deck can have a surprisingly large return on investment. Families want a safe area for their kids to play, and all home buyers will enjoy having a backyard space to entertain outdoors.
Minor Kitchen Upgrade
A complete kitchen renovation can be expensive and time consuming. However, the kitchen is also one of the most important rooms in the home. Here are a few quick alterations that can make a dramatic difference:
- Replace old appliances
- Resurface countertops
- Paint Cabinets
- Modernize hardware
- Install under cabinet Lights
- Add a beautiful backsplash
If there are significant problems with siding, then you will need to invest in a replacement. However, if it is in good condition, but is showing its age, all you need to do is give it a fresh coat of quality paint. The same rule applies for the interior walls and decorative trimming.
Switch to Wood Flooring
Old carpet can be a huge turn off for renters and homebuyers. Wood flooring looks beautiful and is easy to clean. Consider removing stained or outdated carpets and either restore the original floors or install a new one. This upgrade offers even more return for investors who are planning on renting the home, because it eliminates the need to steam clean or replace carpets between tenants.
Light fixtures can be purchased for very reasonable prices, but make a noticeable impact on the overall aesthetics of the property. Toss out the old ceiling fans, florescent kitchen bulbs and boring brass dining room lights for something clean, modern and energy efficient.
Easy Bathroom Updates
The condition of your bathrooms can make or break any real estate transaction. If you’re not ready to take on a full renovation, there are more subtle upgrades that will create a more inviting space. Here is a list of simple fixes that will give you incredible results:
- Apply a fresh coat of grout to bathroom tile.
- Replace caulk around the tub and shower stall.
- Paint cabinets and install new hardware.
- Replace bland fixtures like towel rods, showerheads and faucets.
