When it comes to adding value to your home, there are many options to consider, but few offer the combination of fun, excitement, and long-term benefits of a vinyl swing set. In this blog post, we will explore how installing a swing set in your backyard can increase the value of your home, making it a wise investment for families with children.

And let’s not just limit this to primary residences. If you have a property on Airbnb or Verbo, a swing set on-site could be a big attraction!

Now, I am not a real estate professional, so, you know, take this with a grain of salt, but here are four reasons a swing set can increase the value of your home.

Attracts Families with Children

While many King Swings families move their swing set with them, if you decide that the swing set will stay, this may be the big separator between your house and the one up the street.

A swing set can make your home more appealing to families with children, who are often searching for homes with safe, fun play areas. A swing set can serve as a visual indication of the potential for outdoor play and provide children with a place to expend their energy and imagination.

This can make your home stand out to families with children and increase its overall appeal, especially in a competitive market. It is just one thing checked off the list for the new family.

Having once moved my family across the nation, it would have been nice if the home we moved into had a swing set ready to go, but it did not. In fact, our backyard was a bit of a death trap when we first moved in, but that is another story. As we unpacked box after box, it would have been a game changer to send the kids outside to play on a swing set!

Enhances Curb Appeal

A well-designed and well-maintained swing set can also enhance the overall appearance of your property, increasing its curb appeal. I mean, have you seen the stunning swing sets we have installed? They are the talk of the neighborhood!

A beautiful swing set incorporated into your landscaping can really turn heads. Our swing sets are not pitiful piles of plastic but modern, beautiful structures that add to the vibe of your backyard. Our modern color options can match most homes. You can find all the color information in this blog post.

If you are using your property as an Airbnb or Verbo, having a big, beautiful swing set will make your listing really pop.

Low Maintenance Investment

One of the biggest benefits of a vinyl swing set is that it requires very little maintenance. You can set it and forget it. Next thing you know it is time to move, and the swing set provides lots of value without you ever touching it after installation. You didn’t have to repaint, restain, or refinish the swing set.

This is especially true if you are considering putting a swing set on an Airbnb or Verbo property. Unlike some amenities like hot tubs or swimming pools, vinyl swing sets provide lots of value without adding a lot of work.

While I am not an expert in real estate or the vacation rental field, I do know that installing a swing set in your backyard may attract families to your property, increase its curb or listing appeal, and provide a low labor investment. So while most of you are getting a swing set for your forever home, the added value a swing set gives should make you just a bit smugger about the purchase. And for those of you that have vacation rentals that cater to families, maybe it’s time to make your listing stand out from the crowd.
