Can a Storage Shed Increase the Value of My Home?


Portable sheds can provide immediate satisfaction in the form of extra storage space, a guest house for visitors, or a hobby room for yourself. Yet, did you know that these buildings may also increase your home’s resale value?

When buying a shed, most people only focus on the short-term benefits and forget about long-term opportunities. No matter if you’re considering selling soon or years down the road, now is the time to plan ahead and secure, or even improve, the value of your home. An attractive outbuilding with extra storage space could be just the thing to give your home a slight edge over the competition.

Think of people who normally buy houses. They’re young couples with small children who are looking for room to grow. Or, they may be senior citizens who’ve already accumulated several things in their lifetime and need a place to store it all. Extra storage is never really a downside; in fact, it’s usually a top priority on homebuyers’ checklists. People rarely, if ever, turn down a house because “there’s just too much space”.

If a great-looking shed can increase the value of your home, the opposite is also true. That old, decaying shed in your backyard becomes an obvious eyesore for potential homebuyers. Presentation is everything. By simply removing the building or replacing it with a newer model, you’ll begin to shine a more positive light on the house itself. 

With that in mind, it’s important to maintain the look of your shed. Luckily, Cook Portable Warehouses come with a lifetime warranty and require little to no maintenance. They’re also available in a variety of attractive styles and sizes to fit your specific needs.
