Does A Screened Porch Add Value To A Home?

A screened porch or patio adds livable square footage to your home. While a screened porch or patio is not typically included in the appraisal of your home’s square footage, they do add value to your home in more ways than one. 

A Worthwhile Return on Investment

Like with any home improvement project, it’s important to know the return on investment before starting. According to homeadvisor.com, a screened-in porch has an estimated ROI of 75%. In fact, outdoor projects are generally some of the best investments a homeowner can make to improve their home’s resale value. Not only are you getting an excellent return on investment with a screened porch, but you’ll also be able to enjoy your screened-in porch every day while you live in the home!

Increased Space To Entertain

It’s no secret that Atlanta can get hot, humid, and buggy most months of the year. A screened porch will allow you to enjoy the outdoors and entertain guests on days you might otherwise not be able to. This is very appealing to potential home buyers, as a report from the National Association of Home Builders shows that “a screened porch is among the top 5 most wanted outdoor features among 75% of home buyers.”

Be Included In Neighborhood Comparisons

Do other houses in your neighborhood have screened-in porches? Depending upon your neighborhood’s comparable standards, you can receive maximum resale value if you have a screened porch that is built to the same or higher standard than other screen porches in your neighborhood.
