Research and real estate professionals state that a quality outdoor area is a ‘major feature’ that attracts homebuyers and investors to Australian properties.
The outdoor entertainment area is a leading factor in the sale of a property and, with a professional well finished outdoor area, it can add significant value to a home.
There is a definitive trend towards the establishment of indoor-outdoor living. A well-designed all weather protection areas bring a life and atmosphere to a home as the main entertainment feature and lifestyle for family & friends.
It’s an emotional driver for many homebuyers as an influential factor in the sale and buy of a property.
Domain Real Estate identified that an outdoor area, such as deck or terrace, can add up to $100,000 value in a buyers’ eyes. Agents also believe that anywhere between $40,000 & $100,000 can be added with a façade improvement. Adding an outdoor area that leads to an indoor entertainment area can make a big difference to a property’s value.
The current trend is to upgrade the regular outdoor area to an indoor-outdoor living space. The money spent on a well-designed all weather protection area, like our automated opening roof pergola, brings the emotional connection for buyers and the lifestyle the property offers.
No matter the location or size, to maximise the value of the home, you must consider the following:
– How well does the outdoor area integrate with the indoor space
– Is the indoor space comfortable in most (if not all) weather conditions and can it be used for most of the day, providing air flow and shade
– Does the outdoor area enhance the property
– Does the outdoor area have the wow factor to everyone that sees and enjoys the space
