Creating a Summer Backyard Oasis

8239 E Mountain Spring-24As summer approaches, we imagine casual entertaining spent by the pool or gathered around the grill. At this time of year, even in the 100+ degree heat, buyers shopping for a new home will shift their attention to outdoor living spaces. If you are hoping to sell your home this summer, consider the following popular design trends to enitce buyers to a “backyard oasis”:

-Low-maintenance, drought-resistant landscaping: with Western states facing a drought, homeowners across the country are trending towards sustainable plants native to the region. Many homeowners are even replacing grass with artificial turf. These options are a win-win situation for the environment as well as your budget. In keeping with the sustainability trend, homegrown edibles, including fruits, vegetables, and herbs, are increasing in popularity.
-Bring the indoors out, recent trends have focused on carrying the comforts of the home to the backyard. More luxurious outdoor living spaces may include full kitchens and al fresco dining rooms, while a simple makeover may be achieved by adding durable, weather-resistant furniture. Homeowners are increasingly viewing their yards as ideal spots for year-round entertaining.
-Fire pits and fireplaces are hot. They are available in a vast range of styles and price points for every budget. Fire pits or fireplaces provide warmth in cooler months and a cozy centerpiece around which family and friends can gather in the warmer months. Celebrate a contrasting element to the fire pit with the addition of water features. These can range from simple, inexpensive fountains that may be purchased at most hardware stores to more elaborate custom waterfalls and ponds.

Summer is the ideal season to entice potential buyers with a “backyard oasis” that nicely blends beauty and functionality. Complimentary home staging is included with every listing with the Sibbach Team, contact us to learn more. 480-588-0514
