Backyards are a Must for New Home Buyers

Backyards are the hottest must-have feature this year for homes in Eagle ID. According to a report by Zillow, mentions of backyards are up 22% nationwide in real estate ads. This reflects increased buyer interest in having outdoor space to relax, play and entertain.

Having a nice backyard is good for a family’s physical and mental health. With a little planning, even a small yard can have enough room for gardens, play structures, entertaining areas, and pets.

When you buy a new home, your backyard is a blank slate ready for your personal touch. Adding features and landscaping will help you enjoy your home more and possibly increase resale value. And the right decorative touches can make your outdoor space feel inviting and refreshing.

To get a great backyard, make a list of what you and your household members enjoy. Do you want a private space to sip a glass of wine in the evening? Or perhaps a covered patio for entertaining? Maybe your kids want a space to practice soccer or play on a swing set.

Now is the time to be creative. How can you incorporate your favorite hobbies into your yard? If you enjoy camping, you can recreate the feeling of a woodland getaway with a fire pit and a few tall potted plants.

If you have resale value in mind, consider that current trends show an uptick in interest in patios, pools, gardens, fenced back yards, and covered porches.
