The heat is cranking up and we are happy to be spending time outdoors. Unfortunately, all our time outdoors is not just relaxing. When you own a home, there is always a lot of work to do. Our yards take up a lot of our time during the summer. Here are some tips for you to help you create a desirable landscape in your yard this year.
Maintaining a nice lawn increases the curb appeal of your home. Curb appeal is important because it creates the first impression of your home. We find that many home buyers drive through a neighborhood looking at homes for sale before they decide to look at a home. They are checking out the home for sale as well as the neighboring homes. A decision on whether to call their Realtor® can be based on what they see from a drive through the neighborhood. According to HGTV, a well-landscaped home can add up to 10% value.
We are in and out of many homes every day. If you have any questions about the best things to do in your yard, give us a call. Although we are not landscape experts, we know what our buyers find appealing and see a lot of great ideas in our daily tours of homes.
If you think you may be selling your home soon, we would be happy to sit down with you to create a plan to prepare your home inside and out. Homes are selling quickly, but only if they are prepared for the market appropriately and priced correctly. We would love to help you maximize your efforts to achieve profitable results.
