Some projects are a matter of safety, and you have to get creative to find the proper funding for materials and workers. Take a second to consider a these few creative suggestions, and get to raising money for your home improvement projects right away.
Create a profile with a crowdfunding site
Crowdfunding has made its way into our culture as a valuable fundraising tool. If you are looking to raise the money for a sizeable project, this could be a very effective route. Building an addition for a growing family is not cheap.
Designing a crowdfunding campaign site is not too complicated, and there are a plethora of “how-tos” online to help get you started. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you could feasibly fund your home improvement project within a month or two.
Start a pet services business with the whole family
If you have a family with whom to work, try getting them all together for a pet services business. You can offer dog walking service to the neighborhood.
Pet sitting is also a great way to rack up a few bills. As long as you have a welcoming and pet-friendly environment, you could easily offer to pet sit for busy pet owners in the community.
Let go of a few things around the house
The joy of the speedy growth of technology can easily be transferred to this situation. There are several mobile apps that have completely revolutionized the idea of a yard sale. Now, you can sell your old things without ever having to sit in front of your house on a Saturday.
Mobile apps like LetGo and Craigslist make it super convenient to unload some of your most prized pieces. Almost everyone has a few things around the house that are worth a decent amount of money. Invest your possessions to improve your living environment. It is a small price to pay for comfort.
Cater meals for the local elderly community
Another creative way to generate some income for your home improvement project, and help the local community, is to cook up a few hot meals for the elderly. There are always old people in the community that need a good meal brought to their door.
Publish an ebook on Amazon
It is now easier than ever to get your work published if you are interested in writing. Anyone can publish an ebook. There is no promise of success, but your talent could very well be the tool for funding that long delayed home improvement project.
