Pull out the hedge shears, edger and a trowel to grow the value of your home. A tidy yard with some nice flowers can help a home sell faster and may even add to the selling price.
Just as homeowners repair and upgrade the inside of a home to get a better price, working on the landscape can pay big dividends, real estate agents and landscapers say.
“If you don’t have great drive-up appeal, you may not draw buyers at all,” says Claire Hill with Coldwell Banker Lakewood/White Rock Lake. “It draws people in.”
A survey by the National Association of Landscape Professionals earlier this year found that 84 percent of homebuyers said landscaping quality would influence their decision on whether to buy a home. And 71 percent agreed that having neighbors with well-maintained yards is important.
“If landscaping is done right, it’s going to sell fast,” Hill says.
