Landscaping is a seller's best investment
Homeowners preparing to sell are often looking for ways they can spruce up their home and add resale value to their property. Some strategic updates can help a home appeal more to buyers, but you don't have to remodel your whole kitchen to get the best return on your investment.
Curb appeal is the first impression buyers have of your home, so don't overlook your lawn and landscaping while getting your home market ready. In a recent report by the National Association of Realtors, Realtors ranked landscape maintenance and upgrades and standard lawn care service as the outdoor projects most likely to add resale value to a home and appeal to buyers.
Don't think you have to spend a lot of money on a big outdoor project to sell your house. Some small tweaks, like cleaning up your lawn, trimming shrubs, and adding mulch or colorful plants can make a big impact with a small investment. Is your yard looking a little barren? Shrubs can help fill in gaps while colorful flowers make your home feel bright and welcoming.
