Spring and summer are on the way and that means that home buyers will be thinking about outdoor living and entertaining. One of the most popular home trends of the last few years has been indoor living spaces that give people more living space and the chance to enjoy the outdoors with all the comforts of indoors. Sellers that want to maximize interest in their Edmonton homes should consider adding some of these indoor outdoor living spaces to their homes before putting them on the market. Investing a little bit of money in creating some of these spaces can pay off in a big way when it comes to getting a higher price and getting more interest in the home:
A combined indoor outdoor fireplace is a great feature for any home to have to attract buyers. An indoor outdoor fireplace makes a deck or patio a space that can be use throughout the year and is a great selling feature because it means more livable space. And homebuyers that entertain often will love being able to have their guests gather by the fireplace either indoors or outdoors.

Outdoor kitchens are becoming a very hot selling feature for homes. As more and more people shift their entertaining space to the space where meals are prepared a barbecue outdoors just doesn’t cut it anymore. People want a full outdoor kitchen where they can prepare gourmet meals and have drinks on a hot summer night. An outdoor kitchen is a great way to attract buyers if the home has the space for one.
The biggest advantage of installing a firepit is that almost every home has room for a firepit. Older homes or small homes may not have the room for a grand outdoor kitchen. And some owners may not want the expense of adding an outdoor fireplace. But a firepit is very inexpensive and can be completed in a weekend. Even though it’s a simple upgrade it’s one that will spark a buyer’s interest. For spring and summer entertaining a firepit is a perfect addition and something that buyers really want.
A Screened In Porch Or Patio
Screening in a deck or patio is a fantastic way to add value to a home that is going to be on the market. A screened in porch adds valuable living space to a home and it isn’t a very expensive upgrade. A home with a screened in porch is great for families that have small children or pets because it provides a safe place for them to be where they won’t have to worry about getting too much sun, bugs, or having the pets or kids wandering off.
