Will a Remodel Increase the Value of My Rental Property?

May. 12th 2016

Do you own a second home that you use for a rental? Perhaps you’ve considered updating or upgrading that home? Rental homes can be a great way to make some extra money but one of the keys to getting the most out of your rental is being able to charge as much as you can for the monthly rent. In order to do that, you need to make sure that your rental home is as attractive as possible.

No one wants to spend too much money on a rental home because after all you’re primary goal is to make money from it. However, with the right upgrades and fixes, or even in some cases, a remodel, you can get a lot more value out of your rental property. The best thing is if you are able to improve your rental enough for as little cash as possible, you can actually increase your income by being able to raise your rent price.

The first thing to remember is to treat your rental like a home. You don’t have to make it as nice as your home, but treat it with the same respect. Also, you can make many improvements with repairs instead of replacements. However, if you really want the ability to increase your rent then you should consider replacing and remodeling as much as you can.
