Finish That Basement Or Put In That Pool
North Korea and South Korea are ostensibly at peace due to a new armistice agreement, but Russia is still making Slavic noises about the Middle East, and who knows what the future will be? Maybe it’s time to install a bunker on your property! Or maybe it’s time to relax, put a pool in, and enjoy what’s slated to be a fine Summer.
Of course, it’s all up to you, but one thing is clear: Summer is around the corner, and this is a great time of year to start additions to your property. If you’re clever in terms of construction equipment, you can even get a lot of the hard work done yourself. For example, if you’re putting a pool in, and want to operate it using underground pipes etc., you might need some shoring equipment.

There are a lot of reasons to effect changes to your property; from home enhancement to the repair of known issues to attempts at value expansion designed to make your property investment result in profit. Did you know you can double or quadruple your upgrade investment if you go about it right?
A Hypothetical Profit-Reaping Renovation
Here’s a simple example of something you could install yourself that would quadruple your investment in California while netting you a tax-break and cutting down (or eliminating) your annual electricity costs. A solar energy system of 3.2 kWh will cost you around $5k to purchase, ship, and install yourself. It’s a summer project you could do in a weekend or over the course of a month, depending on your schedule. It will increase your property’s value $20k before you receive the aforementioned tax-break. The average CA electricity bill is about $88 a month; that means you’d save around $1,056 a year.
If you’re savvy about installing a pool, you can similarly see high ROI, or Return On Investment. Or what about this: you install solar panels and a pool for $55k. The solar panels increase property value $20k, and if conditions are right, adding a pool could increase property value by 7%.
Proper conditions for this value hike would include living in a higher-end neighborhood rife with pools, a warmer client, a yard big enough that the pool doesn’t totally dominate it, properly styled pool installation, and a buyer who wants a pool. A $700k property that adds a pool and solar panels increases value to $770,000 in CA prior tax break and energy cost reduction.
What this means is, broached right, you can install solar and a pool for free once the financial “smoke” clears, if you will. You can even turn that into profit that is considerable by doing some of the work yourself and hiring the right contractors. So if you want to cool down this Summer and expand property value, there are definitely options available. You might want to consider your present situation and see what kind of renovations would pay for themselves this year, increase property value, net you profit, or all three.
