During these unusual times, sellers can encourage interest by encouraging ‘outside’ home tours using the following tips. Many of these DIY projects can employ every member of the family, keeping them engaged, creating pride, and building lifelong skills!

Besides the therapeutic benefits of spending more time outdoors, this investment is one of the top 10 high ROI additions you can make to your landscape and can be enjoyed by your family immediately.

Patios: Creative patios that incorporate sun protection, air flow, and comfort could incorporate multi-levels, music speakers, fire pits, and provide an extended living room or make any bedroom more luxurious.

Outdoor Kitchens: The homes that sell the fastest in 2020 may be those that go beyond the standalone grill. Undoubtedly this would be an investment, so do what your budget allows to incorporate high end counter tops, a sink, grill and maybe a pizza oven.

Lighting: Not only does good lighting make your property safer and extend the use of your outdoor living space, it can elegantly highlight your landscape or create a festive mood with LED lighting that swirls, presents lighted images and changes color – a growing trend for our ‘stay at home’ summer vacation.

Victory Gardens: Not since WWII fave food gardens been so popular. Growing vegetables and herbs will engage your whole family and fruit trees will provide almost year round enjoyment. They are also a great selling tool for your realtor to encourage potential buyers to stop by! Looking for inspiration?

So do what your skill and budget allows. There are countless videos and online articles to get you inspired and informed. Many hardware stores and nurseries throughout Marin County are open and enforcing safety restrictions for shoppers. And remember that whatever you do today can be enjoyed tomorrow and every day you remain at home.  All the best to you and your family during this time, Tracy Curtis, Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
