The sale of your home is dependent on many features: curb appeal, architectural character, style, and condition. Many people who are planning to sell their home forget about the importance of their landscaping and instead focus on the interior. However, curb appeal can make or break a sale. The photos of your home as well as what people see when they arrive for a viewing will have a great impact on their first impressions. Here are some tips to prepare your home with the assistance of landscaping services:
A beautiful lawn is a must when trying to sell your home. Nothing says neglect louder or clearer than a lawn that is ill-maintained. You can reseed your lawn if it is just a bit patchy or better yet have it completely covered with sod. Sod offers an instant solution for a beautiful green lawn that will say “welcome home” to potential buyers.
Freshen Up Garden
Your garden should look neat and colourful with plenty of texture and attention-grabbing features. Landscaping services can offer affordable ways for you to add some impact without breaking the bank. They will look at trimming hedges, removing cumbersome bushes and other design details that will make your garden look not only well cared for, but also low maintenance!
Fix Broken Interlock
Details such as an interlocking brick pathway, driveway, or patio that is in ill-repair will shout you don’t care for your home. Although this might be something that seems harmless to you, it is just another detail potential buyers will view as something that will cost them time and money to replace. Landscaping services can make short work of broken interlock and allow people to imagine themselves entertaining and relaxing at home.
A driveway that is filled with cracks, sprouting weeds and crab grass and showing off its age with deep crevices is another surefire way to chase away potential buyers. Depending on the condition of your driveway, landscaping services will offer a number of solutions to enhance the look of your driveway. You can certainly arrange to have it repaved; however there are other options for less worn driveways. A protective coating can refresh asphalt and the addition of some nice interlock curbs and paths will give your home a more polished look.
These tips will help you prepare your home for sale with a welcoming look and plenty of curb appeal.
