Once you have done the inspections throughout the property you should head to the back yard. In the back yard of a property you are looking for anything that can add value to the property. Can the property be subdivided? Do you have a deck? What about a fence.
Fences and decks can add some of the best value for the back yard. The largest percentages of people that drive the sale of a house are woman. Woman want security and privacy in a house, fences allow this. Decks improve the mood in the back yard and can give a great at home feel.
Another great value for a back yard is a shed. Spending a few hundred dollars to have a shed put in can add a lot to the value of the property.
Some people that look at the back yard will look for pools to improve the value of a home. Unless the pool common for the area and in demand the pool will be a liability for the home more than a value.
Always look at the house itself like you would the front. The back however is not the aesthetic focal point for the house. Keep in mind again that we are not trying to make the white house replica but one that is nice, looks and feels good.
