According to Realtor.com, these four outdoor features will boost your home’s value
I've always believed that outdoor living spaces are important in the Lake Houston Area. It is one of the most important reasons people move here—to enjoy the outdoors. However, I was a little surprised at what a difference in can make in a home's value. Check this out.
No. 1 Outdoor Shower
Homes with outdoor showers are appealing to buyers, because they are more likely to be on the water. That’s especially important for homes on the shores of Lake Houston.
Homes with outside bathing areas are listed at a 97% price-per-square-foot premium!
No. 2 Barbeque Station
Nothing says summer like throwing some burgers on the grill. Barbeques are mentioned in nearly 10% of all listings.
So it makes sense that homes with outdoor cooking stations are 26% pricer than those without.
No. 3 Entertainer’s Pool
Pools that have enough space for friends to lounge comfortably gave home prices a 26% lift.
No. 4 Backyard Fire Pit
There are few things more satisfying than sitting in front of crackling flames, roasting marshmallows.
Fire pits gave residences up to a 25% premium boost.
