At Elite Portables, we take pride in creating versatile, flexible spaces which can be used for different purposes over their lifespan. While many of our customers choose to use portable buildings as spare bedrooms or home office spaces, some of our more enterprising clients have used their granny flats as extra sources of income. Here are some of the ways in which families and couples can use granny flats to create alternative sources of income.
Purchasing real estate isn’t as easy as it used to be. With prices rising and savings more difficult to maximise, savvy investors are looking for new ways to grow their money. The convenience, portability and modern design of contemporary portable homes means that alternative real estate can be created on an existing property with less paperwork and significantly lower costs than renovations.
Portable buildings are easy to set up and can provide a significant rental income. Savvy investors in the space have used their capital to purchase multiple portable granny flats as investment properties and leased them out to commercial and residential customers for varied periods of time.
Homeowners with room to spare on their property may want to get involved in the rental market but do not have the budget to build a brick-and-mortar home extension. For families looking to utilise the space on their property while also maintaining their way of life and privacy, building a portable structure on the premises with an independent water and electricity connection is the perfect way to make extra money, especially when putting it up for rent for a longer period.
Looking for something more short term? Consider our wide range of stylish and modern granny flats which can be custom designed to suit a certain mood and level of luxury. By installing a portable home on your premises, you can offer travellers a weekend getaway or a remote office work option that allows them to stay for a few days. Not only does it become a source of income, but also a great way to meet new, likeminded people.
For families and couples who like to socialise and play host, there is no better way to generate alternate income than by curating a unique experience on your property for guests and travellers who come to stay. With Airbnb and other services taking over, an enterprising couple or family can make more money from an empty area on their property than could have been conceived of pre-Covid.
If you are looking to make a relatively small investment and get the most out of it, portable housing might be the perfect choice for you. At Elite Portables, we provide you with hassle free, quality, end-to-end granny flats custom built to suit your space and your vision.
