Patios, Patio Space & What It Can Do to Help Sell a Luxury Home

Mountain patios will soon be coming alive across the Vail valley. Timeless hours with friends during our all-to-brief summer season are spent sitting next to or near an aspen glade or a mountain stream is one quick, grill match strike away.

Bring the Outdoors Closer

At Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties – Vail, I represent and sell homes of distinction. I sell multi-million dollar estates that have taken years to build and months to plan. Custom built homes here are unique, never created twice, and incorporate as much outdoor elements as possible. Homes set in an iconic location such as Vail or Beaver Creek often have beautiful manicured gardens, grounds, and patios to enjoy the amazing Colorado summers and big mountain views.

When my buyers are looking for a home, they often request a property that has nice flow, an open floor plan, and a home that can bring the outdoor elements, inside. With that being said, a well thought out patio area can be done on any budget and will embrace the lifestyle buyer.

Be Sure to Accessorize

A home and its patio never have enough fresh flowers. Bright colors add life to a patio space and help to incorporate nature into livable space. A bright and big red umbrella on any patio will help to create a memorable landmark within the property. The color red is considered welcoming and is often found on the front door of home. Add a patio piece such as a warm colored umbrella to complete the initial feel of the home. I often find my buyers at the end of a home tour sitting on the patio of the home for sale, envisioning how they might live in the house. A nice grill should be its focal point. Outdoor, built in appliances, such as mini refrigerators, wet bars, fire pits, and comfortable fresh patio furniture entices a buyer to stay longer.

A warm and inviting patio increases a homes value simply by increasing its usable space. An inviting and usable outdoor area can easily set a property apart from its competition, especially when in a buyer’s market. Inventory from across the nation is low. Set your home apart by creating outdoor space that is functional, practical, and fun. You will appeal to a bigger segment of buyers currently looking in the marketplace, especially in a very popular area like Colorado.
