Selling Your Home? Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Neglect Your Landscaping

Guest Blogger on Cullins Service Kris Lindahl from The Kris Lindahl Team REMAX

Getting your home up to impeccable condition so that it not only sells quickly but nets you the highest price means that you’ll undertake a whirlwind of activity. If you’re like most people who are eager to sell their homes, this activity tends to be focused on the interior of your home. After all, you want interested home buyers to see the possibilities of your home from the minute they walk through your front door.

First Impressions Are Made Instantly

What you might not realize though, is that by the time someone walks through that front door, they’ve already formed an opinion about your home. How is this possible? The presentation that your home makes on the outside does a great deal when it comes to fueling that opinion. Most people who are in the market for a home will be more excited to tour one that looking appealing as they drive up than one whose yard is in obvious need of work. The exception to this is if a potential home buyer is specifically seeking out a fixer upper. In that case, he or she might overlook a disheveled and neglected exterior appearance.

The Statistics Support Curb Appeal’s Benefits

According to a survey undertaken by the National Association of Realtors, 96 percent of real estate professionals recommend that sellers take steps to improve the curb appeal of their home before they list it for sale. This figure goes hand in hand with the 99 percent of those professionals who believe that curb appeal is vitally important to attracting a buyer. Upgrades such as in the lawn itself or with the softscape were among those the provided home sellers with nearly a 100 percent return on their investment, according to the same survey.

How Much Should You Invest in Curb Appeal?

There are no hard and fast rules regarding the amount of money that is suitable to invest in improving the curb appeal of your home. A good rule of thumb is to invest about 10 percent of the value of your home in its landscaping. It can be difficult to know what types of landscaping projects will net the best rate of return.

Turn to Landscaping Experts

One way to know that you’re investing in the right landscaping projects is to call in the experts. A local landscaping company knows what is popular in your area as well as those projects that are most appealing. For example, though you’d love to put in an elaborate rose garden, a potential homebuyer might find the thought of maintaining it overwhelming.

Another reason to call a professional landscaping company is because homeowners often find themselves so busy fixing up and maintaining the interior of their home to ensure that it’s show-ready, that they neglect the exterior. As noted above, doing so can result in your home staying on the market longer. You might also find that you have a difficult time getting as many offers for the price you want if your home lacks curb appeal.

Cullins Service Tree Removal Climbing

Cullins Service Tree Removal Climbing

TreeMotion climbing Harness w/ lanyard Buckingham Rope Grab Length Adjustment Device. I was using a Buckingham saddle, but it didn’t feel that secure or comfortable. The treemotion harness fits nice and it gives me more maneuverability when I’m climbing around in a tree. I decided to use my Echo CS330T tree saw over my stihl MS 193T tree saw. I like both the saws, but the Echo is generally my go to saw. I just got a new Echo CS 355T top handle tree saw w/ a 16 in bar, and I can’t wait to try it out. I will be breaking in my Echo CS 355T Chainsaw soon. This was a fun climb, and the spikes were great. It was a easy removal which was nice so I could get used to the tree spikes. Everything went great the tree came down safely even though I was right next to some cable lines.
