WTNH– Brian Stellingwerf, from Cambridge Pavers, Inc., talks about 2014’s hottest trends for outdoor living and entertaining.

Outdoor living spaces are no longer just for summer. With covered patios, fire pits and fire places, homeowners are enjoying their outdoor living rooms all four seasons.

A paved pool area, patio or driveway raises property values up to 12%. Past surveys have shown that consumers value a landscaped home as much as 11.3% higher than its base price. In a recent Gallup research project, home-buyers revealed they think landscaping adds 14.87% to a home’s selling price. Of the members of the Society of Real Estate Appraisers, 95% concur that landscaping adds to the dollar value of your home.  Paving stone driveways, and patios are now listed as amenities on real estate listings increasing the sale price.
