Are you planning to sell your home or have an upcoming appraisal for a new loan? One quick and inexpensive way to improve the value of your home is to use the right landscaping. Compared to other home improvements, landscaping is fast and affordable, but it can give you more bang for your back when it comes to adding value.
Value of a home is based on many factors. The size, location and upkeep of the home are all important, but when it comes to creating a “homey” atmosphere, landscaping can go a long way. How a home looks at first site or the “curb appeal” has a big impact on value and how desirable your home is to buyers. Changing the landscaping can go a long way in improving your home’s curb appeal and increasing the value. Some landscaping fixes to consider for increased value can include:
- Installing new sod for a green, lush lawn
- Adding flower gardens in the front yard
- Use bushes and shrubs to enhance the entryway
- Add a paved patio to your backyard
- Trim bushes, hedges and trees for a clean look
If you are not equipped with a green thumb, talk to your local landscaper about quick, affordable options for improving your yard. They can inspect your current landscaping and offer suggestions to give it a more professional appearance. You may be surprised how a few small changes to your yard can make your entire home seem more attractive, and how affordable these changes can be in comparison to other options. New landscaping is worth the time and money to get the most value for your home.
