Simple Ways To Make More Money From Your Real Estate Investment

Aug 18, 2007
Investing in real estate is one of the best long-term investments available. It is also one of the easiest investments to understand in comparison to mutual funds and stocks. There are so many ways in which real estate can bring money, apart from the initial investment. So if you invest to let the property on rent or to fix it up and sell for a higher price, it is still considered an investment and there are simple ways in which you can earn more from such investments.

A simple way by which you can increase the value of your property is by painting. You can paint the fence and the rest of the exteriors and interiors. A painted house will make a lot of difference to the buyer. An old building with a worn out look will not appeal to anyone. So get a good paint job done, as this will increase not only the value but also the demand for the property. When making the decision to paint you must also decide on the type and color of paint, depending on the use of the property. If the property is for residential use then you should stick to colors that are neutral or warm and inviting. In this way the tenants or buyers feel an instant attraction towards the new home making them more likely to make the purchase. So not only do you get a sale, but also raise the value to make a profit.

Fixing up the windows or the front door is another way by which you can increase the value of real estate. This is because when the prospective customers, either to rent the place or purchase it, have the tendency to look out of the windows. So the nice new windows will add to the value and also complement the property.

If the property is located in an area where the crime rate is high, then it would be wise to install grills on the front door and where necessary. This will distinguish your property from that of others and at the same time show the customers that you are concerned about their safety. But when installing the grills, check with the customers if they want the improvement to the house, unless of course they were already there when you made the purchase. Many may not like the idea, but you can offer to install it.

If the property is in an area where the neighborhood is untidy and unkempt, no matter what improvements you make to your property, the value will increase only marginally. On the other hand if the neighborhood is well maintained and your property is in a slightly bad shape, then yes improvements will raise the stakes here. Before making your purchase, check if the foundation of the building is good. If so, then you can take this property and give it a new look by spending time and effort mowing the lawn and landscaping. This will help you make more money out of your investment.
