So when you are investing in any real estate venture, there are some tips and tricks you can use to make your property more attractive to buyers or renters. The first one may seem a little silly, but if you are able to do it, it will bring more people answering your ad. The answer is parking. Most residential properties have room for one or two cars and that’s about it. This day and age many people have not only their cars but possibly motorcycles, boats, and recreational vehicles. While you’re home may have everything they need on the inside, if there is no room for their vehicles and recreational toys, they will have to pass on you.
I know families who have search for properties based solely on where they can place their vehicles. If you have two properties that are almost equal in every way, but one offers an additional parking area; that one will sell faster. Now if your home is in the suburban area where many families do have multiple vehicles it may be worth spending $1000 to have an additional driveway area added on.
Another easy way to make your offer more promising is to utilize green technology. The concept of green energy has been around for quite some time, and many homeowners or would be buyers are looking at this as a key part of their buying strategy. Same scenario. Two homes almost equal in every way, but one has green energy options, and the other doesn’t. Not only is it more attractive to people who are more green, but most green energy components actually save them lots of money as well.
S&S in eastern Pennsylvania offers geothermal heating and cooling for homeowners and businesses alike. They approached a Villanova air conditioning project with this in mind. It uses the natural heat and cooling of the earth to control the climate of the building structure. It uses far less energy, and saves the owners or renters lots of money. It is a good selling tool to people who are looking to saving the environment. There are many other ways to make your property more appealing, I just wanted to give you these as a means of a jumping off point to think about how you can make your properties more appealing and profitable.
