If youíre looking to take your outdoor space to the next level this summer season there are some simple changes that you can do to bring your yard to a ďwowĒ level. 


Use Lighting In Unique Ways


You can really bring visual interest to your backyard by using lighting in unique ways. Think of adding accent lights to walls near the outdoor space (depending upon how itís enclosed). You can also add hanging lights using a fixture like a pergola or umbrella over a table. This is not only a great way to get outdoor night lighting, but a way to define your space as well. 


Use Defining Features


As mentioned above, a pergola or even an umbrella is a great way to define the outdoor space that you have. It will also be a welcome feature to have overhead shade covering for hot summer days. The lighting that you add to these spaces will allow you to use your outdoor area the whole day through with comfort and style. 


Think Of Building Up


If the outdoor space that you have is limited, you might want to consider building up. You can make levels of sorts with your yard. This would include adding something like a cement fixture or a wooden deck. While these types of improvements arenít exactly cheap, they can add to your backyard and give the sense that your outdoor space is bigger than it really is.


Make A Focal Point


If you have a great feature in your yard that provides a great point of vision, you want to make use of it. Be it a fireplace, a fish pond, or something else that your eyes are drawn to, you should place your tables and chairs around this point in order to create an impression. 


Make Privacy A Priority


In your yard, you want to make privacy a priority. Whether you add bushes, build a physical wall, or put up some fencing, you donít want your neighbors to be able to see whatís happening on your property at all times. These features will also help to define the space even more.        


Use The Indoors For Inspiration


Your outdoor oasis can be a reflection of the style that you have on the inside of your home. Just because youíre outside, doesnít mean that everything has to be different. Create a living area complete with tables, chairs, and even an outdoor kitchen if you have the resources. Convenience is key outside, since you donít want to be running in and out of the house while entertaining and enjoying the outdoors. Be sure to complete your patio with accents like throw pillows and even outdoor table lamps to finish the look.

Your luxury home is a major investment, so it’s important to make sure that you’re approaching the selling process the right way. Selling a luxury home comes with certain challenges that you’re less likely to encounter with a non-luxury home. Luxury homes aren’t as numerous overall, so you’ll have to work harder to attract more buyers. According to the National Association of Realtors, only 13 percent of first-time and repeat home buyers purchased homes costing $500,000 or more, and only 9 percent purchased homes measuring 3,501 square feet or more. Keep the following tips on selling luxury homes in mind before putting yours on the market.

Get the Pricing Right

Determining the right price for a luxury home can be a challenge. You might not have other comparable homes nearby to help you figure out your listing price, or your home might have special features that could make it worth more. Asking for too much for your luxury home could mean that it ends up staying on the market longer than you expected, especially since the number of buyers for these homes overall tends to be smaller. Asking too little means you’re missing out on getting what your luxury home is worth. 

Think Twice About Open Houses

Open houses are a common part of the marketing process for non-luxury homes. However, you might not want to have them for you luxury home. Anyone can attend open houses, which means you’re likely to have people stop by who have no intention of making an offer on your home. In addition to wasting your time, these open houses could also make it easy for criminals to target your home. Instead of open houses, consider arranging private showings for buyers who have a genuine interest in purchasing your home and the financial ability to do so.

Use High-Quality Photos and Videos

When marketing your luxury home, make sure you use high-end cameras for photos and videos. The quality of these can have a huge impact on how successful your online and offline marketing efforts are. High-quality photos and videos are an important part of attracting buyers and making an initial favorable impression on them.

Find an Experienced Real Estate Agent

When you work with a real estate agent to sell your home, make sure that you find one who has experience in the luxury market. Selling luxury homes involves taking different factors into consideration compared to selling non-luxury homes. A real estate agent without this experience might have a more difficult time selling your home or overlook important ways to attract the right buyer. Real estate agents with in-depth knowledge of how to sell luxury homes provide you with valuable help when your home is on the market, including helping you determine the right price for it.
