Melbourne home renovations for investment properties

Home renovations create numerous benefits, for growing families and investment buyers alike, particularly those located in Melbourne. Extension Factory has been in the industry for over 35 years, and has seen time and time again the short-term and long-term advantages that follow a quality home renovation – and to make it more achievable for Melbourne residents, we have a unique Finance Offer – no interest and no repayments for 12 months (conditions apply); please contact us for more information.

Achieving a fair increase in rental return can be a fine line; misinformed landlords often choose the wrong types of renovations, resulting in loss of tenant interest, and eliminating the possibility of asking for a higher rental price. Another area landlords often find themselves out of pocket is when they choose to mix a little DIY with cheap tradies and one man bands; unexpected costs, inconvenient delays and incomplete projects can all equal a renovation nightmare.

Top renovation ideas to increase a rental return:

Add a second bathroom – most of us can probably remember the days of sharing bathrooms with siblings, and how quickly we grew out of thinking that was acceptable! Adding an extra bathroom attracts tenants for a number of reasons, but privacy is usually at the top of the list. Modern, luxurious en-suites are always a big attraction point too. Did you know that you may be able to convert a laundry space into a bathroom?

Create extra bedrooms – Stagnant rooms which don’t really serve any purpose could be earning you serious dollars! Converting areas like a sunroom or formal dining room into extra bedrooms may increases your rental return and the property value.

Outdoor entertainment – we all love summer BBQ’s, family dinners watching the sunset and evenings spent relaxing outdoors after a hot day at work… so it stands to reason your potential tenants are going to LOVE an indoor/outdoor experience!

Provide extra storage – Renovated areas that provide maximum storage is a major bonus for tenants; whether your kitchen renovation wants a butler’s pantry, or the master bedroom a walk-in-wardrobe, there are many simple storage solutions that are guaranteed to impress and attract tenants.
