When house shopping, we catch ourselves getting absorbed into the details of the home. "I love these beautifully finished hardwood floors." "The lighting in this house is wonderful." "I can put the couch here, this will be our room..." and so on. We look at those details because they are important to us. They are especially important to us when we know this is going to be one of the biggest purchases of our life.
The inside of the house had everything on your checklist and then you walk out to the backyard...
It's so important to remember that we can spend just as much time in our yard as we do inside our home. What does the outside have to offer you? Do you value privacy? Do you like to entertain and host family gatherings? Do you prefer easy maintenance when it comes to outdoor work? These are some questions every buyer should be asking themselves.
Be in touch with what you need for your lifestyle and be sure to discuss these things with your agent. Your backyard should be just as enjoyable as that gorgeous kitchen inside.
