Staging the backyard is something that is not always done, but just like indoors, it will give prospective buyers of what can be done especially if there is a deck. Sometimes an empty deck can mislead people on its size. Staging will give buyers a good perspective on what the deck can hold. Even if you stage with just a couple of deck chairs, someone could then determine if their hot tub, bistro set or other outdoor furniture will fit.
When looking at a home a buyer always considers what additional work and money they will have to put into the home once they buy it. Some home buyers want a place they can just enjoy and not have to work on at all. Showing that the backyard needs nothing just like the interior and front of house makes their decision easier as well as increasing the pool of potential buyers and the offer amount.
Like interior rooms and the front of the house, dressing up the back yard can pull people in and improve the sale price of the home. As with interior staging, backyard staging should be simple; a few deck chairs on the deck, a small bistro set on the patio, a bench in the garden. As with the front of the house, the backyard should be well groomed.
Staging the backyard can easily increase the quality of the offers. Take the time and money to do these simple things. Do not pass up these inexpensive opportunities to increase the value of your home.
