To increase the value of your investment property, you can do little things like:
- Add a deck
- Repaint throughout
- Add a garage
- Waterblast the exterior
These sorts of things add value for you and also will enable you to get a better tenant and more rent.
A good starting point is the view from the street. Remember this is what tenants and valuers see first and it will set the tone of the outcome from the outset.
Tidy the garden, paint the fence and remove any rubbish. Adding a new letterbox is inexpensive as is painting the front door.
Remember that any expenditure is an investment in your property to improve the income and or value.
