Bring Your SCV Home’s Kitchen Outdoors

    Being outdoors in Santa Clarita ValleyBring your Santa Clarita home’s kitchen outdoors.

    While many Santa Clarita home projects and expansions saw cutbacks during the recession some amenities are coming back and coming back strong. One such household amenity is the outdoor kitchen. An outdoor kitchen is seen as a huge addition to a home, enhancing a family’s lifestyle and adding useful space to a property.

    Bonus with installation

    Installing an outdoor kitchen at your Santa Clarita home makes cooking outside easier and helps get the family or, at the very least, the cook outdoors enjoying fresh air. An added bonus of installing an outdoor kitchen is its perceived value. An outdoor kitchen recoups much of its cost when selling a home and certainly adds appeal.

    Return on Investment – ROI

    Just based on the “rare” factor alone, outdoor kitchens seem to get most of their “installed” value back when a local SCV home sells that is equipped with one.  Not to mention the years of enjoyment the sellers have gotten back as a result of installation.

    Whether you have a small yard or a large estate an outdoor kitchen can be designed to suit your property. This can be as intricate as installing cabinetry, appliances, plumbing and countertops or as simple as a patio space with a grill and perhaps an outdoor bar. The options are endless, and of course the more space you have the more choices you have.

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA.
