Curb Appeal - Selling your Home



I believe most of us could agree that the curb appeal of most homes is what furthers the interest of new home buyers. Especially from those that are riding around in their vehicles looking for their "home sweet home". The first thing that is noted along with the home is the landscaping around the home. Are the garden beds filled with weeds? Are dead branches hanging down through the trees and lying on the ground around them? Are there brown patches of lawn that are a true eyesore?

If you're sprucing up your home to get it ready for the real estate market, then you may just want to get out into the fresh air and take care of any loose ends out on the grounds of the property. Trim back those overgrown rose bushes and yank out those weeds that are getting set to go to seed. Cut back the trees that were once a centerpiece, but now look like they should be hidden in the far corner of your yard. And while you're at it, add something new to the landscape so it looks like you still do care about the property. If your landscaping looks like you don't care about it, then why should the new homebuyers?

According to research sponsored by the American Nursery and Landscape Association, landscaping can increase a home's value by 7% - 15%. So it even makes financial sense to get your landscaping in shape.
