Sprucing Up Your Outdoor Space as Preparation to Sell

 

Sprucing Up Your Outdoor Space as Preparation to Sell

Sprucing Up Your Outdoor Space as Preparation to Sell

 

Enjoying time in the backyard is one of the greatest joys of owning a home. That’s why so many homeowners looking to sell take on landscaping and backyard design projects before putting their home on the market in order to increase value.

While some are content to simply trim the grass with an electric lawn mower, add a few plants, and carefully place a couple of lawn chairs, you might be the type of person with more ambitious plans for your outdoor spaces.

The following tips offer some ideas to consider when designing your lawn for selling your home. Keep them in mind to truly create the backyard of buyers’ dreams.

 

Add an Outdoor Kitchen

An outdoor kitchen can help a home achieve 100-200% ROI when you sell. However, this doesn’t just mean installing a new grill and calling it a day. While a quality grill is certainly an essential component of any outdoor kitchen, it’s only one part of the equation.

Be conscious of the fact that many people who take on this project decide to install appliances like the grill into a bench structure that mimics the workstation found in the typical indoor kitchen. That’s why it’s very important to invest in durable appliances. If they break down, it could be difficult to find a new one that fits the space perfectly.

Along with a grill, you should consider adding a refrigerator, storage cabinets, and ample countertop space for meal preparation. The appliances you install will need to be connected to the house via electrical wires and gas lines.

Odds are good that you’ll want these to be as concealed as possible. That’s why it’s a smart idea to work with a contractor on this project. Once you draw up your initial design, find a contractor in your area who has installed outdoor kitchens before. Working with a professionals makes it easier to get the job done properly from the start.

That’s why you can also consider including the real estate agent you plan on listing with in the design plans. They’ll have expert insight into what outdoor appliance features make a home even more valuable, and what’s trending in the neighborhood.

Here’s another tip. To ensure your outdoor kitchen design is safe and feasible, refer to the design guidelines established by the National Kitchen & Bath Association.

 

Construct a Patio

If your home already boasts a patio or deck, then you’re in luck. Just doing repairs or renovations on an existing patio can cost $1,300, but add over $6,500 to the listing price when selling.  

When curating your patio space, consider adding light and outdoor furniture for more comfort and ambience. That being said, avoid taking up too much space with your deck, so as to leave plenty of room for the benefits of an open yard. Buyers generally prefer a large yard to a large deck, so keep this in mind as you either begin deck construction or take on renovating an existing one.

 

Build a Fire Pit

Constructing a fire pit is one of the easiest ways to add value to your home without adding significantly to your costs. Upwards of 78% of the costs of building a fire pit are recouped when a home is sold. ROI can even reach in excess of 80% when you implement time- and cost-saving features in the creation process.

Make sure that as you build a fire pit, you create an actual structure for it. Just digging into the ground and calling that a fire pit is neither safe nor adequate. Build a stable structure away from other fixtures and in an open space.

Consider these points as you plan your next backyard project in advance of selling your home. Both an outdoor kitchen and a garden that’s easy to maintain and edit add a degree of beauty and comfort to your backyard that will make the space more desirable for potential buyers. Best of all, tackling these projects can be a genuinely enjoyable experience.

Commuting Guide to the Greater Phoenix Area

Commuting Guide to the Greater Phoenix Area

Phoenix is home to over 4.5 million citizens who reside in 6 major cities – Scottsdale, Tempe, Glendale, Mesa, Phoenix and Gilbert.

Commuting Guide to the Greater Phoenix Area

 

Unlike other highly populated cities, the Valley of the Sun is known for its urban sprawl. It’s in every homeowner’s best interest to find a neighborhood that works best for their commute, or to find methods of commuting that work best for them. Be sure to be on top of the best routes and neighborhoods with this commuting guide to the Greater Phoenix area.

Picking Where to Live

Scottsdale

Scottsdale is home to a little over 240,000 residents and is a hotspot for families. Though located east and northeast of Phoenix, it is known as the “Most Western Town in the West.” Scottsdale offers tons of great school districts, housing types and a booming entertainment district. Best of all, the housing market is on the rise. Hop on the Loop 101 or Loop 202 to take advantage of the 30 minute ride to downtown Phoenix for a morning commute.

Phoenix

Downtown Phoenix, the heart of the Valley just off the 202, has become increasingly an popular area due to the growth of ASU’s downtown campus. With more students and workers preferring to live closer to Valley transit systems and work, the housing market in historic Phoenix neighborhoods has seen a sharp increase. Depending on the time of day and job location, commuters are looking at a 15-25 minutes commute by car.

Glendale

One of the original suburb ‘pockets’ located West from Phoenix, Glendale was once no more than a mere stop on the way to Wickenburg along the US 60. Now, this bustling Westside city is home to over 240,00 residents. The city is comprised of a number of large neighborhoods, and is positioned west of the I-17 and east of Loop 101. That means Glendale is only a 20 minute drive to the heart of downtown.

Tempe

Home to Arizona State University’s main campus, Tempe is both a college town and suburban escape. Three freeways run through or border the city of Tempe, including the US 60, the Loop 202, and the southern part of the Loop 101. This makes travel through Tempe to other major cities a snap, with a 25 minute commute to Phoenix and a 18 minute drive to downtown Scottsdale.

Mesa

Mesa is often the first stop for many heading east. With a population of over 480,000 and a spread over 133 miles, Mesa is easily one of the largest cities within the Greater Phoenix area. The cost of living in Mesa is 5% lower than the national average, making that 30 minute commute to Phoenix and 20 minute commute to Scottsdale icing on the cake.   

Gilbert

Gilbert is another one of the Greater Phoenix area’s idyllic suburban cities. Located in the east valley, Gilbert is home to a combination of suburban homes and farmland. The local school district is above average, making Gilbert one of the premier locations for families. Roughly 40 minutes from Phoenix but 30 minutes from Scottsdale, the drive from Gilbert is a breeze on the Loop 202 or US 60.

Choosing How to Travel

No matter where you live, it’s always best to have a commuting plan. Phoenix is laid out in a grid system, making general directions and distances pretty simple for commuters. And thanks to the many multi-lane freeways that run throughout the Greater Phoenix area, it never takes too long to get from one city to the next.

Driving

With a metro area so spread out, driving may seem like the first and most desirable option. If this is the case, commuters should consider investing in an ideal commuter car. Invest in a car that’s comfortable, fuel efficient and has a enough space for the whole family. In Arizona, 22.8% of household own at least one car – higher than the national average.

Public Transportation

The Valley Metro has a number of bus routes that can take commuters all across the valley. There are also neighborhood circuits that cost a dollar or under in Glendale, Scottsdale, and Tempe.

As of 2018, the US Census Bureau announced that the Phoenix metro area is the sixth most populous

The Metro Light Rail currently extends from the tip of Glendale at Metrocenter Mall and runs all the way to Mesa, passing through the heart of downtown Phoenix and Tempe. There are currently plans in the works for extending the lightrail all the way to the Cardinals Stadium.

Biking

Cities all across the greater Phoenix area have become increasingly bike friendly over the past few years. Scottsdale, Tempe, and Phoenix have all begun campaigns to increase bike networks, teach cycling skills and enforce new bicycle laws to encourage the use of bikes throughout the city. Many neighborhoods have even widened roads and added bike lanes to busy streets.

 

Whichever neighborhood, town or mode of transportation you choose, being ahead of the commuting game is any citizen’s first step towards living a happy life in the greater Phoenix area.  

Whether you are buying or selling a home in any of the metros above, The Holm Group is here to assist you. The Holm Group represents both buyers and sellers throughout the valley.
