Atlanta Investment Property

Tackling a Fixer-Upper Atlanta Investment Property
More than 90,000 people moved into Atlanta last year, making our city the ninth-most populated in the country. Atlanta’s growth is slated to keep pace in 2017 and beyond, especially with the success of new hangout spots like Ponce City Market, renowned chefs like Kevin Gillespie, booming breweries like Monday Night and Sweetwater, and local Atlanta gems like OK Café, The Varsity, and The Fox Theatre.
With so many people moving into town, and so much in Atlanta to enjoy, it’s the perfect time to invest in a rental property! While the process can be a little daunting, Home ReBuilders has walked many first-time investors through the process. Here are a few of the more popular projects that we help many of our investment property clients tackle, aside from the ever-popular bath remodels and kitchen repairs.
Constructing Decks, Patios or Screen Porches
Atlanta is a patio city, year-round, so many of our clients consider porch additions to be a worthwhile investment. Part of the appeal of our town is the occasional January day in the 60’s and 70’s – and here, “summer weather” is basically May through October! Tenants in Atlanta see value in having an outdoor space to lounge in; especially in bustling neighborhoods like VaHi, Inman Park, and Decatur.
Creating a Laundry Room
Renters love laundry rooms for the same reasons you do! It’s nice to have a designated area to do this frequent and important chore. Plus, a laundry room with built-in storage can also serve as a mudroom, as storage for off-season clothes, and as a place for a stash of household products like toilet paper and toothpaste. Plus, in a rental market filled with stackable washers and dryers jammed thoughtlessly into a hallway closet, a laundry room will help your rental property stand out.
Converting a Bonus Room into a Bathroom
Roommates, couples, and families alike will appreciate the opportunity to each have their own bathroom. If your new investment property comes with an extra bedroom or office, consider converting it into a desirable bathroom (and perhaps devoting some space to a large closet, too!). Home ReBuilders can work with you to create the overall design plan and then complete all the work, including taking measurements, ordering cabinets and fixtures, and getting everything installed and looking beautiful.
Configuring an Open Floorplan
Many renters would love a home in which they can entertain! Home ReBuilders can help knock down walls so that multiple chefs can fit in the kitchen, guests can chat and mingle in the kitchen while renters put the finishing touches on dinner, and parents can watch their children playing in the living room while cooking. The end result is a floorplan that’s easier and more desirable for renters, and likely to be more profitable for you!
Go ahead and take the leap into the world of income property. With Home ReBuilders’ team of design build experts by your side, you’ll be a landlord in no time!
