Often it is the backyard outdoor living space that goes unthought of when selling a home, yet it is high on the priority list for most home buyers. Is your outdoor living space ready for sale? These tips will help you ensure that your backyard is not holding you back!

Basic Backyard Lawn Care

Start with basics. Make sure that all overgrown bushes and trees are appropriately trimmed back in proportion with the home. Help your grass look lush and healthy by using a weed killer to remove weeds, applying fertilizer, and perhaps even more grass seeds for a thicker covering. Remove weeds from any flower beds and trim around any the exterior of the home, fencing, and even walkways for a clean look.

Incorporate Outdoor Lighting

It is amazing how adding a little ambiance to your outdoor living space can transform it. Incorporate lighting in a way that is both functional and inviting. For instance, light walkways, gardens, and even sitting areas.

An Extension of Your Living Space

A bare backyard without any seating areas is not inviting. It makes it look as if you do not use the backyard, so it makes it difficult for potential buyers to see themselves using the space either. Ideally, create a space where people can lounge and dine outside. Outdoor furniture, tables, and rugs can really elevate the look and atmosphere of your space.

Finishing Touches to Your Outdoor Living Space

Adding new elements to your outdoor living space is great, but you also need to make sure that the entire space is clean and polished. If you have a pool, ensure that it is clean and ready for use. Pressure any mildew, dirt, and debris off decks and porches. Take it a step further with a fresh coat of paint or stain.
