4 Unique Outdoor Ideas for Improving Your Home’s Resale Value
Spring is a popular time for home improvements, especially outdoor ones. After you have cleaned up your lawn and completed necessary spring maintenance tasks, you will probably look for outdoor projects that increase your home?s curb appeal. Although curb appeal is important, it is also important to keep return on investment in mind. Look at outdoor projects that provide significant ROIs. These are projects that will increase the resale value of your home and will allow you to recoup much of your project expenses.
Regular and routine maintenance tasks are important in maintaining and increasing a house?s value. Home buyers generally do not want to purchase a house that needs numerous repairs. Ensure that minor exterior maintenance is kept up, including gutters, windows, roofs, garden beds, and sidewalks. These are all things that both the potential buyer and the inspector will look at during the house sale process. Keeping up with these exterior maintenance tasks will also increase your home?s overall curb appeal, which in itself can attract home buyers.
One of the biggest complaints about current household situations is a lack of storage space. Families, especially larger families, require sufficient storage space. Both indoor and outdoor storage space is needed. You can increase your home?s outdoor storage space with a nice Amish shed or a larger Amish built garage. Amish built sheds are made out of extremely durable and strong materials. They last for many years and provide some of the best storage possibilities. When purchasing an Amish shed, it is wise to determine your space needs and add 25% for future storage needs. Also, keep the most efficient layout designs in mind.
Beneficial usage of land
Expansive amounts of land are also a benefit to a house. It attracts home buyers, especially when that land is used efficiently. If you have large amounts of land, attempt to benefit from the land in some way. Build a garden to grow your own fruits and vegetables. Build an Amish chicken coop for your own sources of protein. Have Amish barns installed to house the chickens and other animals. Future buyers will enjoy the many land opportunities and will have the ability to build onto the existing structures to create their own land needs.
Furniture is not always included in the sale of a house. However, it can be negotiated or included in the sale. You can further increase your home?s value and increase desire by including Amish furniture in the sale. Amish sheds and other types of Amish furniture are of high quality and tend to last for a long time. In a survey of over 2,000 customers, 72.7% of respondents agreed that, the design of my furniture reflects my personality, and 67% of respondents agreed with the statement, a lot can be said about a person from the furniture she owns.
Furnishing the exterior of your home with these high value Amish furniture pieces can demand a sense of quality and luxury for the rest of your house, especially the outdoor areas. Home buyers also believe that these items will last for a long time, making them even more worth the sale price. Amish furniture first gained attention in the 1920s, when early American folk art was discovered, and dealers and historians placed great value upon the beauty and quality of the pieces. Today, it still demands much of the same beauty and quality.
Spring is a great time for outdoor projects. It is also a great time to complete value increasing exterior projects. Even if you do not plan on selling your house in the near future, increasing the value now can be beneficial. Increase both your home?s resale value and curb appeal by completing regular maintenance tasks outdoors, making good use of large amounts of land, increasing exterior storage with Amish sheds and garages, and furnishing your outdoors with beautiful Amish built furniture.
