Living on the barrier islands means spending LOTS of time enjoying the great scenery right outside the back door. Creating a back yard that showcases just how great it is to live here will make your house stand out.
Creating a great outdoor space also adds tremendous appeal to home buyers. For homes on the water, outdoor space ranks right up there with kitchens and bathrooms on the list of buyers’ hot buttons. Many buyers will overlook a dated bathroom if the back yard offers enough appeal!
Whether you have a pool or not, some simple additions and changes can make the area more appealing for buyers – and it doesn’t have to cost thousands.
For added appeal – don’t forget to draw focus to the outdoor space from inside the home by opening (or removing) blinds and curtains that block the view. Then, make sure home buyers have an open path that leads to the backyard by rearranging furniture.
