Outdoor Upgrades That Make Your Home More Valuable

Exterior upgrades enhance the look of your property and can offer recreational benefits. Not every renovation, however, produces a return on investment, and some upgrades (like swimming pools) make your home less attractive to potential buyers. If you want to refresh your yard and build equity at the same time, consider one of these outdoor projects guaranteed to boost property value.

Add a Wooden Deck

 

 

Do you enjoy spending time outdoors? Then consider installing an attached or detached wooden deck, which will give you the perfect spot for grilling, sunbathing, and entertaining. Wooden decks are also a major selling point that offer a return of almost 83 percent!

Install a Backyard Patio

Installing a patio is another project that expands and enhances your outside living area while increasing the value of your home.  According to HouseLogic.com, homeowners who put in a new patio can see a 60 percent return on investment.

 

 

Invest in an Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor kitchens can yield  a 100 to 200 percent ROI, depending on the housing market in your area. For the best return, they suggest not going overboard with extravagant features, unless they’re for your own  enjoyment.
