When looking to sell a property, many buyers and sellers focus a lot of time and energy to the rooms and interior when they may want to look a little closer at the outside; not just the yard and outer house paint, but the potential something like a patio may have. Outdoor space focus is actually quickly growing and nearly being considered another room of the home. Small investments outside can lead to high returns when rehabbing and flipping homes.

Pergolas, arbors, or arbours are not utilized as often as they should be. These can be added to patios connected to the home or added throughout the yard. They can serve as shaded places to enjoy fresh air or an alternative to a gazebo. They work well with plants, furniture, and water features. Wood or lightweight metals can provide homeowners with lovely sections of their yard to spend time with friends and family. These can be purchased with instructions (or ready-to-go) or with the right materials they can be built easily. Either way, they can quickly increase the curb appeal for those harder-to-sell properties, or they can increase the value of an already lovely property when given an extra focus to water features or great foliage.

Sun-rooms offer fresh air and sunlight without always leaving the safety of indoors. This addition can be used as a spare room, office, dining room, living room, and more. These are often low cost since much of the structure is composed of glass instead of wood, beams, and metal. With weather-proofed glass not only is a properly built and maintained sun-room safe, but it is energy efficient. An alternative is an enclosed patio with screens instead of glass. These allow for more connection with outside while avoiding insects and some weather elements. Both of these additions can help take people out of the more traditional and boring parts of the home and utilize yard space for new ideas.

Covered patios can be very cost effective (as little as $8/square foot) and can quickly improve the cost of a property. Some cheap options are available for coverings, but insulated patio roof covers can reduce energy bills, provide shade, and when combined with proper columns, screens, or fans the value of the home can be increased without doing much else. People love socializing and the ability to host gatherings at their home without forcing everyone into the harsh sunlight.

Depending on the surrounding housing market and the prospective buyers, pool enclosures may be a good idea. The appraisal value may not be significantly increased but the right buyer will pay large sums of money for such a feature. This may include the fancy infinity pools or a small spa or pool enclosed by railings or screens. This can improve safety and reduce pool maintenance, which can change the cost of a property for the right buyer. Investors may also want to look into hot tubs and other alternatives to pools depending on the housing market and surrounding properties. These should be reserved for houses in the higher end markets.

Additions away from the actual house can be cheap and quirky. Small offices made from sheds or storage containers may convince a homeowner to think twice about a property. With so many people seeking to work from home today, the thought of an office space separate from the rest of the home is a great way to transition from traditional office jobs to working from home. Investors would not need to build entirely new additions from scratch, but there are some viable options which do not break the bank. Again, this is an option for higher end markets, not low budget housing, and it may be best done with large outdoor space.

Never neglect yard space, if the rest of the home is boring, basic, and under control, a little bit of money spent on adding something special to the property can make thousands of dollars difference. Ask around the neighborhood and find out what others use their yard for and talk to potential buyers and real estate agents in the area before trying something drastic.
