Outside Features Help Sell a Home

Real Estate Agent with Platinum Properties TN Broker: 208698

It Completes the Package and Makes a Buyer Want to Call It Home.

We all know that curb appeal can get buyers in the front door but the backyard features can make a buyer want to stay and never leave. When the buyer feels at home and then starts imagining living in the home, they are well on the way to making an offer.

Backyard entertainment areas

When I know that the exterior features like the patio or backyard entertaining area are stunning, I hold off until the end to show the buyers, putting the icing on the cake. I love seeing their eyes light up, hear discussions about all the possibilities for parties and to witness the big smiles and open body language.

Sure, outside features can be added but when they are in place and beckon the buyer to come and enjoy, there is not much that will keep a buyer from making a good offer. 

This patio and firepit area is behind one of the homes in Stones Manor. Many of the builders in Stones Manor put an emphasis on outside entertainment areas because they know it is a strong selling feature in today's new homes. I took this photo with my Canon Rebel T3i.

If you are thinking of making improvements to your present home that will help it sell, consider outside space like patios, nice decks, screened porches, outdoor kitchens and permanent firepits and barbecue areas. It adds value and you will enjoy it too while you like there. 

If you are looking for a new home in Clarksville, TN or thinking about selling give me a call. Contact The Real Debbie Reynolds, 931-320-6730.

Hi Debbie

That's a wonderful entertaining area, especially with all the greenery and the open space behind it. Great photo!

 When it can be staged in the warmer months it is certainly well worth the effort here....pretty soon our snowy blanket will make staging a spring thing once again.

What a lovely picture!  This is very true with many, many of my buyers, Debbie.  I can't count the times during a showing that buyers have made themselves comfortable in the back yard at a welcoming table and chairs to discuss their interest!

A nice backyard is very important for buyers here, as a lot of people like to entertain outside and the weather is so nice most of the year.

It's really smart that the builders are also giving attention to the outside areas of the house. I love the firepit in the background. That would certainly get my attention if I was a buyer looking at that home.

This is especially true for us down here in Florida where many folks spend a good deal of time outside in their yards and patios.
