With summer upon us, outdoor spaces become more important. Porches and patios can create additional living space for home buyers when appropriately showcased. This can increase the value of a home, offering a tidy return on investment.
Creating living space outdoors with home staging
In the summer Chicago area suburbanites love to spend their time outside. Outdoor living spaces, particularly during the warmer months, can create additional value to any home. Just like the interior of the home, when porches and patios are properly staged, they help buyers imagine using the space on a regular basis.
This recent home staging project in Geneva, IL is a good illustration. It’s easy for buyers to imagine sitting outside, sipping on a cold refreshing drink, entertaining friends and family. Even as the weather turns cool, the outdoor fire pit is a cozy setting, begging to be curled up on the sofa.
Understanding the value of home staging
Creating a return on value is important to our home staging customers. This porch may have seemed small for buyers when it was empty but fully staged it is now a cozy respite for reading or entertaining. Lifestyle touches like these can create a perceived or emotional value that is difficult for buyers to resist.
