Wow your Buyers with your Outdoor Spaces

It is up to you, as the seller, to draw your buyers in by showing off your Jacksonville Beach home’s best assets. So, don’t overlook your outdoor living spaces in the process!

If you are fortunate enough to have additional living space in the form of a porch, sunroom, lanai or deck, show it off and reap the rewards with better offers!

Add Some Color

If your front porch looks neglected and dull, then it should come as no surprise that your buyers walked right past it. A front porch is the perfect opportunity to set the tone of your Jacksonville Beach home.

Make the most of it by adding outdoor furniture, accessories and plants. Start with durable, outdoor furniture and top it off with colorful, outdoor cushions, pillows and throw rugs. Today’s outdoor furniture retailers offer a great array of colorful and weather resistant accessories, such as pillows and cushions, which add flair to any outdoor space.

Use potted plants to fill in the empty corners and immediately bring the space to life. Choose colorful annuals, as well, to brighten up the spot and make it feel welcoming.

Set the Mood

Your lanai or back deck should immediately wow your buyers as they step outside. Think tropical retreat when decorating, as the goal of your backyard space should be to create a spot where buyers could see themselves relaxing or entertaining.

Lots of seating, bright market umbrellas and landscape lighting is a great way to begin setting the stage for your vacation retreat. Stage a seating area, as well as a dining area, to show buyers what the space can be used for.

Don’t simply assume your buyers will know what to do with your outdoor space. Show them, and most importantly, inspire them!

Don’t forget that your outdoor spaces should play just as big of a role as your indoor spaces. Take care of them and they will certainly take care of you in terms of a quick sale!
