INVESTING IN LANDSCAPE BEFORE YOU LIST YOUR HOME PROVIDES A GREAT ROI

According to HGTV, landscaping is one of the few home improvement projects that is likely to provide a 100% return on investment if you are planning to sell your home. In addition, addressing curb appeal is one of the ten projects that all homeowners should tackle before listing their home. Your home will only get one opportunity to make a good first impression, and that begins long before potential buyers walk through the front door.

The first step in creating great curb appeal is to access the condition of your current landscape. A professionally installed landscape will always provide good flow through the yard. Plant material and its locations should complement the features of your home rather than covering them or detracting from them. This means that there should be a clearly defined path to the front door, plants should not cover windows or other architectural features of your home and everything should be neatly and correctly pruned. A general clean up could be all that you need to spruce up a professional landscape and return it to almost like new.

When you are considering a landscape renovation for your home, also think about the benefits of landscape lighting. When someone is thinking about buying a home, it is not uncommon for him or her to drive by the home many times and one or more of those visits could be at night. Not only will landscape lighting greatly enhance the beauty of your home at night but it will also provide a feeling of security and safety if the yard and walkways are well lit.

With the entryway clean and inviting and the landscape spruced up, you are certain to have many buyers eager to see the rest of your home and the property. And in most cases, the amount that you invested will be recovered in a higher sale price as well as a faster sale.
