My bike stays outside the year around. We have a three sided shed and we walk the bikes into it to keep them out of direct rain.

The only real concern for me is having a dry seat. I always keep a plastic bag on the bike to cover it when it's standing outside somewhere in the rain.

If we didn't have that shed (and a locked terrace with a gate) I'd install a bike mount on the house which I would lock my bike to. These mounts are essentially a metal ring that gets bolted to your house and is more or less a permanent attachment.
