The real estate world can be described in two words right now: seller’s market.

That is, home values have all but shot through the roof of late, providing ample opportunity for property owners to sell their homes and rake in far more in revenue than they might have a mere three years ago.

And if you’re looking to hop on this bandwagon while you can, we suggest you consider installing an awning to increase your home value.

Here’s why:

Energy Efficiency, Meet Excellence

If a buyer has been left sweating over their energy bills in the past, they’re likely to stay on their toes once they’re back out on the real estate market. Thus, if you want to increase your home value, an awning is the ideal solution for energy efficiency.

In fact, according to research conducted by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA), Southwestern locations are proven to have cooling energy savings with awnings. Homes in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for example, were shown to have an average savings of 36% per year following the installation of an awning.

You may not always consider how something as simple as the sun could impact your home resale value but, once you opt for an awning, we guarantee you’ll see the difference.

Seamless, Sizable, Spacious

Whether you’re looking for room to move or room to breathe, an awning can accommodate. Moreover, an awning can expand the overall living space of your home, thereby increasing the property value by virtue of its size.

Sunesta, for example, offers custom-made retractable awnings that can be designed with projections up to almost 15 feet and widths exceeding forty feet! What’s more, these awnings can be adapted to virtually any home mounting location, from patio to pergola or pool.

Whether prospective buyers in the Southwest are looking for a location to lounge or entertain, the shaded area can accommodate them — meaning it can also accommodate your asking price.

Don’t Cut Corners On Curb Appeal

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and so curb appeal holds sway over your property value.

Thankfully, an awning only enhances the existing appearance of your home, and a custom awning can take it even further. From a variety of patterns to countless colors, Sunesta will provide you with your choice of over 150 awning fabrics.

Thus, you can customize your home and ensure the awning blends seamlessly with its Southwestern surroundings.
