It’s officially spring which means everyone is eager to get outside and defrost from the winter months! As the seasons get warmer this is on the mind of home buyers; what is the outdoor area like? Can I sit out here on a warm summers evening with my family and friends? When it comes to home staging outdoors there are a multitude of things you must consider in order to ensure that the outdoor areas are appropriated staged for summer.
The front of the property is the first thing buyers see so it is of utmost importance to ensure the property is looking its best from the front. Having plants that are in bloom is a great way to make sure the outside of the property is looking its best in the summer months. This translate to out the back too. Be it pot plants or plant in the ground it is of utmost importance to have plants that flourish in the summer months.
Having fresh, green grass is a must when selling in the Australian summer. If your property has grass that just doesn’t grow or if you’re sick of moving the lawn every week in summer, then consider swapping to artificial grass. This will ensure that your grass is always looking perfect and involves no hassle.
Updating your deck is another great way to allow your property to sell for more in summer. Staining the wood a neutral tone, installing some practical and comfortable seating and adding potted plants and greenery is a great way to encourage yourself and guests to get outside more in the summer. Decks can fade quickly so it is important to make sure everything is looking great before the summer months kick in.
Installing adequate lighting is something that everyone forgets to do. Get creative and add fairy lights or a large lamp to a sheltered area on the deck. Most decks don’t allow for down lights so everyone is left trying to see from the light inside. Scatter candles around the area to create multiple light textures.
