A couple of things I am thinking of doing to a 1 bedroom Unit not only to increase value but to increase the rental. The Unit is in a block of 6 and made in the 1970's. The Unit is on the ground floor and balcony onto the street in front , the back of the Unit faces onto the common backyard that has the clothes line. When looking at the Unit to buy i thought how easier it might be to rent out if I put plantation shutters on the windows inside as well as motorised block out blinds on the balcony door window and front ground floor windows to block out intruders and give the tenants privacy and maybe having the front balcony glassed in. i have also thought about taking the bath out and putting in a Spa bath. I think if i add plantation shutters and built in wardrobes it could increase rental income as well as CG, downside is plantation shutters are expensive. Also whist there is a tenant carspace it has no carport, im thinking of adding a carport, although im not sure if the Body Corporate is responsible for this. Would they expenses increase my rental income? Would they pay off in the long run for CG?
