Does a Shed Add Value to a Home?

 

Like so many other things in life, the question of whether a shed does or doesn't add value to a home is not a black or white, yes or no answer.

Added Value

 

In general, having a shed in your yard will definitely add value to your home… unless.

 

A shed in poor condition may actually detract from the value of your property as it may be a safety hazard and not in keeping with the overall standard of the house. However, even if the shed is in poor condition, just having the building permit for a shed, in areas where such a permit is required, may add value to a home.

 

The amount of added value will depend on many elements, including the condition of the shed. This is why plastic sheds are your best choice if you are contemplating erecting a shed in your yard, because the durable nature of plastic sheds ensures that they require very little maintenance. Also, you can have your shed in place in no time at all: just buy it and place it in your yard. No construction or assembly required.

  

The Importance of Tidiness

 

Where a shed will definitely have an impact in adding value to a home is the practicality inherent in it. Part of owning a home pertains to maintaining a home. That means keeping your home looking presentable and homely.

 

A shed provides you with a storage option that will enable you to quickly and easily keep your home tidy and cared for. Assuming that you use the shed for what it is intended – storage, then it will ensure that both your home and your yard are not messy. If toys, gardening tools, and other peripheral items are left lying around due to insufficient storage solutions, both your garden and your home might become a danger zone, rather than the enjoyable surroundings their meant to be.

  

To summarize, any shed in good condition, including a plastic shed, will add value to a home in its practical application as a highly efficient storage solution.
