As we enter the summer buying season here in Northern Alabama buyers tend to look for outdoor living space and yard appeal. Modern, updated kitchens and baths will always attract buyers but without the curb appeal you may lose the opportunity to wow potential lookers with your interior updates. Make sure you trim your shrubs and keep your grass cut and yard free of weeds. Don’t neglect the backyard as buyers are looking for outdoor space that acts as an extension of the indoor. If you have a deck or patio make sure it is clean of clutter and invites potential buyers to relax and enjoy the space. Fences should be solid and all gates working properly.
Outdoor kitchens are a trend that continues to appeal to buyers as well. We love to grill and entertain in the south and what better way to enjoy our long outdoor season than to invite over friends and family for a cook-out. Other trending outdoor spaces include fireplaces, covered patios, screened porches and large decks which all act as entertaining space and extensions of your indoor living space.
