Selling a home is all about curb appeal. If your windows gleam like they’re brand new, if your lawn is cut and edged, and if your kitchen and bathrooms sparkle, home buyers take notice. And nothing says “I’ve taken great care of my home” more than an outdoor space that looks well maintained.
Tips for Showcasing Your Outdoor Spaces
An outdoor space isn’t just an excuse to enjoy the fresh air without leaving home. For many buyers, it’s the perfect place to entertain friends, to chat with the neighbors, or to sit down with a good book and a cold drink. So when you’re staging your patio, balcony, or other outdoor space, it’s crucial to make it look stunning.
Here’s how to make your Pittsburgh property a dream home to potential buyers.
Clean and Declutter Your Patio
Patio homes in Pittsburgh are sought after, mainly for their low-maintenance outdoor spaces. While you’re getting your home ready for showings, spend time sprucing up your patio area. Power wash your patio to scrape off dirt and make it look like new. Wash the cushions on your outdoor furniture. Brush all the leaves and twigs off the table and concrete. You can even go a step further and get rid of the unnecessary patio furniture; decluttering works wonders on smaller patios!
Focus on the Landscape
Plant beautiful flowers, pull weeds, lay down fresh mulch, trim trees and bushes, and do whatever it takes to make your yard look gorgeous. Adding a splash of color to your landscape can also create a focal point and increase the “wow” factor. Here’s a good example:
Show Buyers That Entertaining is Effortless
When buyers come to tour your home, you can wow them with your outdoor seating, beautiful landscaping, and additional elements like a barbecue grill. This kind of staging shows buyers that your home is perfect for entertaining outdoors. And who knows? Your staged outdoor space may be the reason buyers choose your home over someone else’s.
