These days, outdoor spaces are one of the most desirable parts of a home, particularly here in Colorado where we can have gorgeous weather all year long. Adding features could bring more money when it comes to a sale. Popular these days are outdoor kitchens and outdoor living areas, similar to living rooms. All of these spaces are ideal for the back patio area and amy add value to your home. Consider unique ideas but not too niche, make sure that whatever you do will appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers. You don’t even need to hire a contractor to design the space for your, with a little ingenuity and planning you can create your own exceptional outdoor space for a fraction of the cost a professional would charge.      


Pretty much every house built today has an underground irrigation system. It is one of the biggest selling points with some buyers. They will literally walk away from a home that does not have a sprinkler system. If you don’t have an existing irrigation system, the cost associated with installing one will probably not gain you that much equity, but it may cost you a sale. Ultimately it is up to you whether or not you would like to invest in a sprinkler system, it could seal the deal for someone.

Make Sure Your Landscaping And Trees Are In Order

Dead or dying trees and landscaping with plants that are mismatched or dead is not the best way to sell a home. The best way to get your landscaping squared away is to hire a private contractor. They have the experience with the plants and trees of this area. If you are not willing to hire a professional, get ready to do your research. Putting together a landscaping plan when you are not used to doing it everyday can be a challenge.
