Outside space is essential when you are preparing to market your home and just having some outside access doesn’t always have the desired effect. Potential purchasers may want to consider a house with inviting space outdoors.
The important word you should keep in mind when determining the value of outside space is “usable.” Having a usable easily accessible outside space in the house that can be used all year round certainly helps sell a house. So if you are planning to sell your home and have the goods, you should be sure to showcase your wonderful outdoor space to potential buyers.
If you have an outdoor space which is detached from your property, such as a garden one floor down from your condo, you should still point it out to your potential purchasers.
Listed here are a few of tips about how to get the best out of your outdoor space
Add comfortable, inviting outside furniture.
Is the stereo system system connected to outside loudspeakers? If this is the case, be sure to point this out. Play music (softly) outdoors during your open house.
Do you have a backyard grill? Make sure its clean and prominently displayed.
Landscape. Plant flowers, pull weeds, thin out any scraggly trees and shrubbery, and make sure the grass is freshly mowed.
Consider low-maintenance lawn options. Turf grasses and ground covers are a good way to help make your lawn more appealing. They’re low-maintenance too, which many busy professionals today will appreciate. And lawn alternatives can be, ironically, “green” – eliminating the need for herbicides and gas-powered lawnmowers.
This may seem extreme, but you could also attempt to add a deck or patio to your backyard if you don’t have one. It’s definitely an investment, but often one that will pay for itself and more.
An outside space is definitely an asset for anyone attempting to sell a house. Think of it as an extension of your home. The better it looks, the better the inside of your home will look – and, with luck, potential purchasers will love your home enough to purchase it.
