Add Value To Your Home
Labor Day weekend is over and marks the beginning of fall. It also signals Saturdays as college game days and kicks off the football season. There is still time to transform your yard or patio into the perfect spot for outdoor entertaining. Many of our customers dream of building an outdoor kitchen and patio to host parties for holidays or to have friends over for sporting events. An evening with family and friends on your patio is the PERFECT place to host your next event. Outdoor kitchens allow you to cook and serve your food, chill and store your favorite party beverages, and host large groups while providing an amazing atmosphere for guests to enjoy.
I’ve blogged before about our custom outdoor kitchens and today I want to address a question I sometimes hear. Customers wonder how investing in the exterior of their home affects their property value. CNN Money, a Clemson University study and Remodeling Magazine have all reported that landscaping and outdoor kitchens can often return more than 100% of the improvement cost. As with any improvement, the best ROI formula will work as long as you design your landscaping and custom outdoor kitchen in proportion to the value of your home and the area where you live.
At Red Valley Landscape, we help customers design and build a wide variety of outdoor living spaces. Every design we create is unique and blends the personality and lifestyle needs of our customers. Most clients find that designing an exterior space is much more affordable than remodeling an interior dining space. Sometimes remodeling an interior kitchen is not possible because of logistics like load baring walls or existing plumbing and drain lines. It is definitely easier to have construction outside your home than right in the middle of it. Customers also tell me they enjoy the ambiance and convenience of a great outdoor living area. There is something about star gazing and moon watching that calms us all. It quickly becomes everyone’s new favorite place.
According to a 2013 survey by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), 83% of home buyers want a great patio for their home. There are many options such as, outdoor kitchen, outdoor fireplace, water feature, arbor, landscape lighting and other outdoor living areas that add beauty to your home. This can often help you sell your property quicker as you are helping it stand out to potential buyers. Curb appeal is just as important as location.
