Increasing your home’s value with exterior improvements
We’ve all heard the curb appeal pitch...by improving your home’s curb appeal you’ll increase the home’s value and make things more appealing to potential buyers. That’s true, but does it feel like a waste to put so much money and effort into an area you really don’t spend any time?
At Studio Tatum, we’re big believers in putting your money where you spend your time. If your kids are always playing in the front yard with their neighborhood friends then maybe some front exterior improvements are for you. On the other hand, if most of your time is spent entertaining in the backyard, you might want to consider investing in a backyard overhaul.
Not only does adding hardscapes and landscaping make for a more liveable backyard area, it can also increase the value of your home when you do go to sell the property. We recently did a backyard renovation that resulted in an increase of $20,000 in the appraised value of the home. It’s all about creating liveable space. For this project, we built a custom Cabana with a dual-purpose storage shed on the garage-facing side of the house.
If an outdoor kitchen is out of your price range, consider a pergola or deck to increase your porch footprint. An improvement of that scale, paired with some landscaping and some carefully selected outdoor living furnishings can create a luxe look for less, all while adding value to your home.
Let Studio Tatum create a backyard oasis for your family, it’s an investment you’re sure to see a return on...and it’s sure to create memories that will last a lifetime!
