Thinking about your next home improvement project? Or maybe you’re wanting to up the value before listing your house on the market? It’s time to consider adding a hot tub to your backyard! Not only can a hot tub increase your home’s value, adding a spa to your garden is a functional investment your family will enjoy.
When a Hot Tub Can Increase Your Home’s Value
When it comes to adding value to your home, the best projects are intentional and well planned out. Take the time to map out your landscaping so that your hot tub looks like it is part of your home. A great way to do this is with an in-ground spa, or even by adding a deck around your hot tub. This gives your hot tub the appearance of being a permanent investment in your home. Having a spa retreat goes a long way as a selling point in colder climates.
How to Maximize Your Investment
Once you’ve decided to bring home a hot tub, there are a couple of things you can do to drive up your home’s value. Choosing a high-quality spa, like a Marquis® Signature Series hot tub, can make all the difference. High-quality hot tubs last longer, function better, and are overall more attractive. Installing a long-lasting spa in your backyard ensures that you and your family get to enjoy it to the max, and, if you leave it behind when you move, so will the next homeowners!
What Not to Do
The increase in your home’s value comes into question when your hot tub is on the cheaper side because they don’t last as long and don’t make as much of a contribution to the property. However, a well-maintained, quality hot tub can last decades, making it a worthwhile addition. If you’re planning on listing your home to sell, or even on the rental market it’s also unwise to let the landscaping go without upkeep. Keep the grass cut and try adding a few flowers or outdoor furniture for a more attractive and functional appearance.
