A bigger yard is often on the checklist for homebuyers looking to upsize. They may want a large backyard where kids can play, dogs can run around freely and they can plant a garden. If finding a home with a bigger backyard is on your list, be sure to take the following questions into consideration while house hunting.
How much upkeep are you willing to do? When you upsize to a home with a bigger backyard, the level of maintenance needed increases. Mowing the lawn will take longer, and the garden will need regular care. Landscaping may also need to be done when you move in and then touched up every year. Considering how much time and money you are willing to spend on your yard can narrow down your home search.
How do you want to use the yard? Will the yard primarily be a play area for your kids and pets? Do you want to host garden parties or barbecues? Thinking about the yard’s purpose will help you decide between a medium or large yard, an open yard or one with a few scattered trees, and a low-maintenance yard or a yard needing upkeep.
