Investing in Your Home and Family with a Backyard Basketball Court

Nothing brings a family together like quality time spent at home. Though it may be tradition to huddle in the living room and watch your favorite movies together, there’s something about bonding over a pickup basketball game that you just can’t top. Companies that build basketball courts will tell you time after time that they’ve seen just how these courts can help families and friends alike bond in ways that you wouldn’t believe.

It’s important for basketball enthusiasts to see how investing in a backyard basketball court is not only a favorable financial decision when it comes to your home’s value, but a great investment in terms of bringing your family closer together.

Let’s Talk Money

Before we talk about the familiar benefits of investing in a home basketball court, you may be interested to see just how much this recreational addition can increase home value. These courts range in cost, and that mostly depends on size, material, and on any extra goodies you decide to add such as logos, extra netting, lights, and snapbacks.

According to Home Advisor, you can expect a basketball court installation to range anywhere from $11,000 to $76,000; it’s important to view these numbers as an increase to your home property, since basketball courts hold their value extremely well compared to something like a private pool. Long-term, the initial basketball court cost doesn’t even compare to the value that it can bring your home.

Investing in Your Family’s Happiness

In a recent article published on the Gazette, Marion High School’s head basketball coach Pete Messerli talks about how this $15,000 investment has brought his family closer together. The Messerlis had their court tailored by Corby Laube of SnapSports of Eastern Iowa and Western Wisconsin, and Pete says that their court has brought about quality bonding time and countless hours of family fun.

You can renovate your home in the traditional way(s): a new kitchen, bathroom, new landscaping, but what makes a basketball court unique is that it can help families connect through physical activity, it can serve as an outlet for kids and adults looking for an escape via their favorite sport, and it can help kids harbor and nurture new friendships. The way that a home basketball court can bring people together is well worth the investment; added property value is just the icing on the cake!
