Boost the value of your home by adding practical, versatile outdoor upgrades.

Are you planning on selling your home in the near future? We’ve put together a list of ways to increase the value of your home before you.

A few simple outdoor upgrades will add selling points to your home. This will mean you can raise your asking price when you eventually put it on the market!

These upgrades include:

  • An outdoor entertaining area
  • A carport
  • A set of roller shutters
  • A backyard swimming pool

Add an outdoor entertainment area

Installing a pergola, verandah, timber deck, or outdoor blinds can boost the value of your home.

Everyone loves entertaining friends and family in the comfort of their home. An outdoor entertainment space allows you to do just that, with the added bonus of being outside.

Installing a pergola or verandah and a set of outdoor blinds will give you much-needed protection from the weather. These easy outdoor upgrades mean you’ll be able to entertain outdoors in rain, hail or shine.

Likewise, a timber deck will add another element to your outdoor space. Decking provides warmth to any area, and can turn a soulless backyard into a vibrant one by itself.

People want to be able to enjoy their backyard in any weather. Combining a timber deck with a pergola or verandah and a set of outdoor blinds in your backyard will tick a lot of boxes for potential buyers. The more interest in your home, the higher the eventual selling price!

Install a carport to add value to your home

Carports are becoming valuable additions.

A carport is a practical home improvement for a number of reasons. A carport will:

  1. Protect your car from the weather
  2. Reduce your car insurance premiums
  3. Deter potential car thieves

In this day and age, people are hesitant to leave their cars on the street. Any home with a carport attached will attract higher offers than those without.

Lower power bills = higher value

Roller shutters will save you money on power bills.

With power bills skyrocketing, everyone is looking for ways to lower the cost of heating and cooling.

Roller shutters from Australian Outdoor Living are fully insulated, making them an effective way of controlling the temperature of your home.

Shutters work by blocking the external elements, creating a more pleasant indoor environment. This means your heating and cooling system doesn’t have to work as hard, which lowers your electricity bills.

Buyers will always be willing to pay a little more for a home if it includes lower quarterly power bills!

A backyard swimming pool can increase the value of your home

Homes with swimming pools often sell at a higher at value than homes without them.

What family – especially one with younger kids – isn’t tempted by a home with a pool when they’re looking at buying a house?

A concrete pool offers families a chance to get outdoors on those hot days and enjoy each other’s company whilst cooling down. This is a much better option than being impatient with one another when the heat gets too much!

Parents with pools find themselves hoping for hot days so they’ll have an excuse to get outside and spend time splashing with the kids.

When families see a backyard pool on offer with their dream home, they’ll automatically think of the change of lifestyle for the better that awaits them. That guarantees your property will head to the top of their list to buy.
