Tembo Financial offers equity advances so you can receive the proceeds of your sale before your closing date. This service helps homeowners purchase a new home faster, assist with moving costs, or even help pay for a vacation or new car. But did you know that you can use advance financing services to help with renovations? Renovating can help increase the value of your property, or can help turn your new fixer-upper into your dream home. Here are a few tips that can help you save when you’re renovating your home!
Increase Efficiency, not size:
Re-organizing and equipping your kitchen or bathroom can help you avoid blowing walls to gain additional square footage. Consider which type of storage is most efficient for space, from lazy susans to vanity mirrors, you don’t need to compromise storage for aesthetic. The best of both worlds is attainable if you maximize your space and research thoroughly!
Donate your trash:
Invite your local Habitat for Humanity chapter to your home before renovating. They can help you remove fixtures and materials for later resale. You will save money on Junk Removal services, you will receive a charitable tax credit, and you are engaging in a good cause! Additionally, this is a much more eco-friendly way of renovating, as you are avoiding sending your junk to a landfill.
Long Term Savings vs Short Term Gains:
Even when it comes down to the type of paint you’re purchasing, consider the long term savings vs the short term savings. Will you need to replace it in the next couple years? If the long term costs exceed the current savings, consider splurging a little bit. You will save in the long run.
You can often find building supplies at a local auction for half the price of the retail cost. If you’re planning on building cabinets, this would be a great place to search for supplies. Home centers will increase prices to cover some of the overhead costs. These extra costs can easily be avoided.
Whether you’re planning on a full home renovation or a small project, Tembo Financial has various financing options to meet all of your home improvement and lifestyle needs.
