Adding a deck is one of the easier upgrades that you can do with your home. You can choose a covered deck or an open one. 

If the deck is to be used for entertainment purposes it is also a good idea to add an outdoor kitchen as well. An outdoor kitchen area can make your home even more attractive when you are selling it.

Finish the Basement

Another great way to improve the value of your investment property is by finishing the basement. If you have a large enough basement you could finish it and make it into a small apartment.

This is another way to have additional rental space or ask for more money when selling based on the number of accommodations that are in the home. If you don’t want to finish the basement into a small apartment, another approach is to turn the basement into a movie theater

Many people have been doing this very successfully and it is a great way to add value to your property. A home with a built-in movie theater is hard to resist from any buyers and it may just be the selling point you need to command a high price for the property.
