Many real estate agents found that most home buyers are more interested to take a tour of a house that looks inviting on the outside than the one that looks sad and dreadful. More often, owners selling their properties would keep asking, if there are any ways to further enhance their property value before inviting potential buyers to visit the house.
It is similar when you want to meet someone on your first date who showed up looking dull and messy, you might not want to continue the night with your partner right? So the same goes to your home especially when you want to sell out your home in the future, this should be put under your consideration.
Landscaping can add tens of thousands of dollars to the actual value of your property if you are deciding to sell it out soon. In fact, it is one of the few home improvements you can make that not only add value immediately but also increase in value as time goes by.
For very extensive landscaping, while it is being loved and valued by the gardeners can be seen as negative by homebuyers who are concerned about the extra maintenance cost and the extra work involved. Whether it involves outdoor landscaping
or interior landscaping
for your house, any touch up by the specialist would definitely help the look and feel of the house.
Here’s how the landscaping helps to enhance the value of the properties
either directly or indirectly:
I. Improve marketability and property price
A professional landscaping in a house would make the house more desirable, and easier to let go when you intend to sell the house. A well-developed landscape design
will eventually help to raise up the price of your property.
II. Tastefully-designed landscaping
Landscaping is more than just sticking some flowers and grasses to the ground. The number one thing people look out for in landscaping is the sophisticated design. Close behind that is the plant size and maturity of the garden.
III. Surrounding neighbourhood
Research from some home improvement experts shows that home that has a well-landscaped yard and surrounding might have a significant price advantage over a house with no landscaping.
IV. Meticulous previous owner in taking care of the landscape and house
A well-maintained landscape will indicate to buyers that the current owners have taken great care of the exterior landscape, as well as the interior furnishing of their homes.
V. Short term plan to beautify the landscape
If you are planning to sell within a year, you can take several immediate steps in order for you to dress up your landscape and indirectly boost your selling price.
