Do Backyard Sport Courts Add Value To Your Home?

There are many home exterior projects and additions that homeowners can implement to increase the value of their homes. While new roofing and other renovations may add some value to your home when you’re ready to sell, how many of them can actually be enjoyed by you and your family for the time being? According to a study by houselogic, swimming pools may not be the best investment when you’re looking to add value. Therefore, if you are looking for a fun way to add some value to your home it is definitely worth considering an outdoor sports court!

How Backyard Sport Courts Increase Your Home’s Value

At 360 SportsScapes, we specialize in the installation of residential basketball courts, backyard putting greens, backyard batting cages, multi-courts, and other sportscapes for your property. One of the most common questions our basketball court contractors get asked is whether or not sports courts are a good investment in regards to home value. Well, we’re happy to share that a backyard sport court is an addition to your home that will not only bring years of enjoyment to your family, which of course is priceless, but will also increase the value of your home. Here are a few ways how:

Low-Maintenance

Swimming pools are not only expensive to install, but require very intensive and costly maintenance. With a backyard sports court, maintenance is a breeze and inexpensive! Unlike traditional court surfaces, 360 SportScapes are constructed with quality tile that is 100 percent anti­microbial and resistant mold build-up. Maintenance is as easy as clearing leaves and an occasional power washing to remove dirt and dust. 

Because these sports courts are durable and long-lasting, they’ll still be in great shape if and when the time comes to sell your home and will help boost its value.

A Solution To Your Landscaping Woes

The less lawn you have, the more you’ll save on both time and from having to deal with lawn maintenance. Depending on the size of the sports court you install in your backyard, there may not be as much work required when it comes to landscaping. Plus, sports courts can be designed to fit and enhance your landscaping, making it a win-win!

An Eco-Friendly Addition

More and more homeowners are looking for ways to make their yards more environmentally-friendly — which typically translates to using less water. Unlike traditional court surfaces, our sports courts are not only constructed out of eco-friendly materials and the installation will result help lower water usage in your yard. Many homebuyers look exclusively for homes that have green features, and a sports court certainly contributes to an eco-friendly yard.

A Variety of Uses

Can’t decide which sports court will bring the biggest return? Why not invest in all of them? With a backyard multi-sport court you can bring an entire athletic complex to your yard. With a multi-sport court, you can add your favorite game lines, designs, and logos. Because these courts can easily be converted between basketball, volleyball, tennis, and other sport courts, there certainly will be value added to your property.
