Your Rentals Outdoor Space Can Help Your Return on Investment

Spring has sprung and it is the time to be outside enjoying all it has to offer! Does your Dover or Portsmouth property have a space where you can enjoy these precious months of warmth? Below are some idease to make the outside space more appealing to tenants and guests.

Backyards aren’t just about patio furniture anymore! Creating an outdoor living space can be easy, low cost and add value to your rental home. In fact, one of the biggest advantages to a single family residential home is the personal space found in a private backyard.  If you have a duplex or apartment here in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, having a nice outdoor space can help you attract and keep good tenants longer. Simple enhancements will help your home rent quicker to quality folks who will preserve your investment and pay a higher rent rate.  Here are some of our favorite patio furniture trends and backyard ideas for outdoor living spaces:

Fire Pit: A central gathering place enjoyed year round, a fire pit is one of the hottest trends in outdoor living. Surrounded by simple patio furniture or lawn chairs, you can buy a fire pit from the store or make your own, either one will be a hit!

Flagstone Grass Patio: A simple and easy weekend project, laying flagstone onto a small (or large) area in your back yard provides a great space for patio furniture. Your new patio will be easy to maintain and blend in with the surrounding landscape.

Add Some Color: Found some old beaten up chairs at a local garage sale? Bring them back to life by spray-painting them with beautiful summer colors!

Another idea is having a space where someone can grow a few vegetables. While the Seacoast area of NH has plenty of CSA’s to choose from, many people still like to dabble on their own to grow a few things.
