We have heard the number one factor in real estate, location, location, location…but how about curb appeal? In a Zillow survey, real estate agents named curb appeal one of the five most important factors in selling a home. First impressions DO count and your landscaping can make or break a sale.
A yard that has been well taken care of sends the right signal to a buyer. It reflects care, attention, detail, that transfers to the rest of the house. Not to mention that a well-landscaped home can add considerable value to your property.
When you are planning to do any landscaping, keep it simple. A labor-intensive landscape can turn off some buyers. The number-one thing that buyers are looking for in landscaping is a clean, uncluttered, manicured design.
If you are in a budget, here are some simple, inexpensive landscaping tips that will add value to your home:
• Spruce up a tired lawn. Buyers like a lush, green looking lawn. There are a variety of high-quality organic fertilizers available in the market that will help you do just that.
• Keep the grass mowed. It makes a BIG difference, specially before a showing.
• Cleaning up. Trim the shrubs, remove weeds and dead limbs, tidy up the space all around the house.
• Power-wash. This is a simple and inexpensive way to brighten up your exteriors. Concentrate on your driveway, walkway, fences, outbuildings, exterior siding.
• Ad Fresh Mulch. Another cost-effective way to invigorate your yard and make the surrounding plants pop.
• Use potted plants – pop some color. Pick up some inexpensive colorful annuals to enhance your walkway and overall curb appeal.
• Curve lines add fluidity to your yard. Creating a clear, well-defined edge between your grass and mulch gives the landscape a professional look.
• Combine plants of different heights. Give your home some depth and dimension by combining plants and shrubs of different heights.
• Outdoor seating. A simple bench, chair, hammock, makes your yard inviting and functional.
• Be creative… drape outdoor curtains, add some lighting, hang bee houses, build a fire pit…
