Upscale your outdoor area for a quick sale

Whether you have a small outdoor area, a courtyard, a balcony or a large garden it’s important that you showcase this space to show off its full potential when putting your home on the market. Now more than ever people see outdoor spaces as a much needed necessity and a well maintained outdoor space has the potential to increase the overall value of your home.

Remember, the outdoor living area says a lot about the house and the way it is used by the current owner. You want to show potential buyers that your home has been loved, respected and looked after.

Here are 3 clever ways you can revamp your outdoor space:


Create a space for entertaining

Whether it’s summer or winter, Aussies love the outdoors and having a place to sit and soak up the sun. If you already have a balcony or a deck try adding some outdoor furniture such as a little table and set of chairs or, if you have a bigger space, add an outdoor lounge. These additions can transform the space into a social area.


Get your green thumb on

A freshly tended garden will bring a lot of appeal to your exterior. Remove any plants or trees that are dead or dying and replace them with fresh lush plants. If your garden is overgrown with weeds a quick way to disguise this is by ordering some mulch and spreading it over your existing garden beds.


Style your best selling point

Identify the best feature in your garden and really show off that feature. Is it the view? The swimming pool? A particular tree or plant? This can be done by positioning outdoor furniture to really highlight this selling point and removing any additional distractions
