Outdoor Features that Add Resale Value to Your Home

Exterior upgrades can enhance the aesthetics and functionality of your property and offer certain benefits that make your home more appealing to potential homebuyers. However, not every outdoor renovation project delivers returns on investment, and some upgrades may even make your home less attractive to potential buyers when you decide to sell.

Before planning your next exterior upgrade project, like extensive landscaping, a swimming pool or covering the patio with retractable awnings or automatic outdoor shades, consider:

● Your current and future lifestyle requirements
● How much longer you’ll stay in your current home before selling
● Whether your planned exterior upgrade will enhance your home’s resale value.

Naturally, it will come as a disappointment to realise a water or garden feature that you had your heart set on won’t deliver any fiscal returns and could actually make your home less attractive to potential buyers. However, it’s better to find this out before you get started than once the project is complete! Here are a few exterior upgrades that can enhance the look and feel of your home, add real fiscal value and make your home more appealing to buyers.

Outdoor Fire Pit

Check with your local council before getting the project underway, but outdoor fire pits are immensely popular in Sydney and as they add value to homes, you can expect to recoup most of your investment when you sell. Adding an outdoor fire pit with seating area as part of a larger landscaping project is a popular exterior upgrade that delivers many benefits.

Retractable Pergola

Homeowners have many options when it comes to covering outdoor areas these days. From louvered pergola opening roof systems to simple yet effective retractable awnings, Sydney homeowners are spoiled for choice when extending their alfresco spaces. Especially when the experts at Aspect Shade design, manufacture and install their new shade solution!

A variety of retractable pergola and awning designs are available to suit all style, space and functionality requirements, as are additional extras like weather sensors that detect changes in the weather and open and close accordingly. Retractable pergolas and awnings can add real value to your home and have the added benefit of making it more appealing to buyers.

New Deck Or Patio

Decking and patio projects can be expensive, but like retractable pergolas and retractable louvre roofs that blend in seamlessly with the style and colour schemes of your home and add style and functionality, they’re one of the best projects for enhancing property values.

Along with choosing the right materials for your new deck or patio, consider additional features to enhance the look and feel of the outdoor space, like exterior lighting with security sensors or including an external fireplace with permanent seating in the design.
