75% of home buyers first impressions are made by what is called "Curb Appeal" of a property. That is... the way a home looks from the street first. First impressions can only be made once.
Being a homeowner can be one of the most gratifying things for an individual, but unfortunately recent trends show that the housing market has begun to weaken. If you are a homeowner that is planning on staying in your home for a while, this may not be as big of a deal, but if you are one of the many homeowners' who need to sell their home, the current climate can be frustrating.
One of the most successful ways to achieve a quicker sale is to boost your home's curb appeal. Whether your landscape is overgrown or lacking, the investment to hire a professional to design or revamp your landscaping can pay off as much as 10% to 15% on the selling price of your home. A well landscaped home sells six weeks sooner on average.
Landscaping is a good thing, but sometimes less is more. Most landscaping requires at least minimal care. Trimming, fertilizing, and removing plants that are either dead or way past their prime can make a huge difference on the look of your home. This can be one of the most affordable ways to add some curb appeal.
