Spring and summer months give way to sunny days and outdoor events and gatherings to enjoy with family and friends. Whether you and your family aspire to have an outdoor grilling space or a place to lounge in the sun’s rays, taking on outdoor projects such as these will ultimately pay off as they increase the value of your home when you decide to sell.Â
Even if you are not yet ready to sell your home, taking on projects early will definitely pay off in the long run. Taking on projects that bring out the best in your home will ultimately enhance its value and your chances of getting the most money out of its sale.
When it comes to landscaping, your yard is your canvas but what types of landscaping projects add value to your home?
Trees highlight a homeâs awe factor as nature appeals to buyers. If your home is short of natureâs best, consider planting a few trees to increase your property value by at least 4% to 20%.Â
A well-maintained lawn is one of the most important aspects of a homeâs curb appeal, mainly because it is the first aspect of your home that buyers will see. Put your best foot forward by maintaining your lawn for the best first impression.Â
Spice up your walkway or entrance to captivate your buyers from the first glimpse of your home to the front door. Doing so will give impressed buyers another reason to pay your top dollar for your home.Â
From toasting s’mores on an open fire with family and friends to barbeque dinners on the deck, extending your home outdoors is a significant selling point that will add value to your home.Â
If you have the space, consider adding a deck to create a new area for gatherings, entertainment, and enjoying the sun. Not only will you and your family get to enjoy the benefits of an added deck, but you will also get to enjoy the added value it brings to your home.Â
Adding on additional features to your home, such as privacy screens and an outdoor fire pit, are great ways to further enhance your homeâs outdoor living space and your home value.Â
Regardless of the size of your outdoor space, something is awe-inspiring about exterior lighting. Incorporate outdoor LED lighting to your homeâs walkway, porch, and around your home to create an ambiance that buyers canât resist. Adding exterior lighting is not only appealing but also adds a security feature to keep your home safe from burglars.
