Experienced real estate agents will stress the importance of curb appeal when you try to sell your home.
First impressions not only count when meeting new people, but the curb appeal of your home is essentially an introduction to perspective homebuyers. A first impression can make or a break the sale of your home, so curb appeal can really determine how long your house sits on the market.
Caring for Your Landscape
When trying to sell your home, the curb appeal needs to help buyers create a positive image of how their lives would be in your home. When a buyer arrives at your property and sees dead plants and poor landscaping, they may question how well you have taken care of your actual home. It may seem a little over the top, but buyers associate poor landscaping with your home being filled with potential problems. When you have an impressive landscape, people know you take pride in your home, and that really boosts curb appeal. When it comes to showcasing your home, no stone can be left unturned. You can’t take any chances in such a tight market, so pay for professional landscaping services now, and reap the benefits later.
Boosting Curb Appeal with Landscaping
It may seem a little overwhelming to work on your lawn initially, and it can be difficult to identity the exact factors that will help boost your home’s curb appeal. Real estate agents will often suggest to employ the services of a professional landscape service, as the landscape service will use its years of expertise and experience to improve the curb appeal of your home. Removing weeds is very important, and new homebuyers want to see a lawn with green grass, so it’s important to provide your grass with lawn food and water. Also, rich-colored mulch can help improve the appearance of trees.
If you have trees that are properly placed and cared for around you home, the U.S. Department of Energy states that you can save between $100-$250 on energy costs. That is a nice little tip to boost your home’s value, and the shade from trees can actually reduce air conditioning needs by 75%. Properly maintained trees and lawn will add great curb appeal, and the fact that trees can actually save you money creates an additional selling point for your home.
