Many homeowners don’t realize when an outdoor living space is designed and built properly it can also help increase the value of your home. But, not all outdoor features boast the same returns, and your specific real estate market has a significant impact on which outdoor feature will add the most value. This is why it is important to know which investment could add value, increase marketability, and enhance the overall appeal of your home to a future homebuyer in your market.
At MasterPLAN Outdoor Living, we are committed to helping you identify the best investment and ensuring it maximizes the value of your home in Pennsylvania or New Jersey. This is why we asked these real estate agents what outdoor features homeowners should consider when identifying the best outdoor living investment for their home:
“The architectural connection between your home and backyard is very important. It is crucial to make sure your outdoor living space fits, flows, and connects to your home so it does not end up being an eyesore. An outdoor living designer can help you visualize structure, material, and finish selections that perfectly complement the existing architecture of your home and enhance the overall appeal to a future buyer.” – Andrew Ginsburg, REALTOR, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Regency Real Estate
“It’s important for homeowners not to neglect their backyard when prepping for resale,” explains Christie Jones, REALTOR, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach.“Buyers are looking to use their backyard as an extension of their home for entertaining; relaxing; cooking and dining outdoors or even watching television. Functionality and layout are important. This is why an outdoor living space that is designed and built properly could help increase the value of your home.”
“A deck is an extension of your home. An old deck in disrepair can scare off potential buyers or even kill a deal. You want the warmth and charm of your house to extend into the backyard. It should add functional living space, improve your lifestyle, and increase the property value. Working with an outdoor living designer, such as MasterPLAN Outdoor Living, ensures that your backyard is stylish, low maintenance, and built to stand the test of time. If you ever attended a party in someone else’s amazing backyard, then you will know exactly what I mean.” – Eric Kucharik, REALTOR, Realty ONE Group
“Many homeowners don’t see the value in enhancing curb appeal with landscaping and lighting, but first impressions are everything to homebuyers. An outdoor living designer can help you design and build more than just a simple deck or patio. A designer will include landscaping and lighting that will enhance structural details and softly illuminate your home to provide a warm and welcoming ambiance that can help increase the value of your home.” –Kimberly Rosado, REALTOR -Sales Associate, Keller Williams Real Estate
