You’ve undoubtedly already heard all the typical advice on how to increase the value of your property, such as painting, maintaining the condition of the floors, and replacing your fixtures. However, there is a fairly easy tip for increasing the worth of your house that you can use up until the day you decide to sell.
One approach to raise the value of your home while also making it more commodious and useful for your family to utilize daily is to build a covered patio. According to studies a covered/enclosed patio can add 10% to the value of your home. Here are a few reasons why both real estate agents and purchasers adore a well-planned patio.
Larger Living Area
When a house is evaluated, floor space is frequently an important factor taken into account. Buyers are constantly searching for a home with enough room to comfortably host friends and family in shared living spaces without having to rely on one another for financial support. You can increase your floor space without having to spend money on a brand-new house wing by creating a sizable outdoor area.
Get the indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
Why wouldn’t you want to take advantage of indoor/outdoor living if you had a beautiful outdoor place and the appropriate weather? Even the hottest summer days may be spent outside thanks to features like built-in ceiling fans and heat-reflective roofs. A bonus is that if you feel comfortable outside, you won’t be stuck inside all day running the air conditioner.
The physical transformation of your home
Regardless of where it is situated on your property, adding a covered patio can radically alter its appeal. A new patio may offer a touch of refinement that both you and a potential buyer will appreciate, whether you’re updating your home’s façade or establishing a hidden outdoor retreat behind your home.
Your home will benefit greatly from having a patio built both now and in the future. Got a patio already? See our helpful advice for getting it ready for the summer!
