If you are selling your home, you want to get top dollar for your asset. If you don’t want to spend too much money to improve your home, you are limited on ways to increase your value. However, any real estate agent will tell you that curb appeal is one of the best ways to get a higher value for your home. The trick to getting the most money for your home is to make it look great without spending big bucks on home improvements. Landscaping your yard may be the best investment you can make to achieve the highest return.
You may be skeptical that landscaping can make much difference in your home’s value. After all, it doesn’t change the house or its viability as a home for potential buyers. However, when buyers are looking at several homes within the same size, neighborhood and price range, curb appeal makes a big difference. Their first impression of the home when they pull up to take a tour is very important. While they can imagine different siding or paint colors, poor landscaping can make a bad first impression.
Landscaping is an affordable way to drastically change your home’s curb appeal. Something as simple as edging, mowing and pruning the front yard can make a giant difference on how your home looks when buyers approach it for the first time. Planting a few flowers or shrubs can also make it seem more homey, a place buyers can imagine calling home.
If you are limited on funds but want to get the most value for your home quickly, considering hiring a professional landscaper. It could be worth every penny and much more by improving your home’s curb appeal.
