Patios, Pools & Hardscaping: What do they mean for home value?

When summer comes around, homeowners begin to think about what they can do to improve not just the inside of their home, but the outside as well. The possibilities are endless: patios for summer barbeques, outdoor lighting for chatting late into the night, a pool for the kids to splash in, and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and making s’mores.

The homes we renovate don’t always end up being our forever homes, though. When it comes to selling, will all of that hardscaping hurt you or help you in terms of home value? Well, for the most part, hardscaping will add value to your home. After all, it’s only logical to get some money back for all that you spent on it. The real question is, is it worth it?

Before deciding, it’s important to do some research. Lucky for you, we’ve done it already.
