Professional Landscaping Increases Curb Appeal And Home Value

kls_landscaping_1Whether you’re in the market to sell your home, or you’re just looking to give your home a facelift for your own benefit, professional landscaping can have a big impact on your home’s value and curb appeal.

In fact, according to Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report, four of the top five remodeling projects with the highest ROI are exterior projects.

First Impressions Are Everything

Especially if you’re looking to woo buyers. Unruly shrubs, flower beds overgrown with weeds, and brown spots in your lawn, can mistakenly give the impression that your home is not well-maintained.

A lot of times buyers will drive through neighborhoods and by a home before scheduling a showing with their realtor. If your home doesn’t make a good first impression on a drive-by, it’s unlikely the buyer will take the time to see the inside.

Your Home’s Exterior Can Increase Its Value By 17%

A well-maintained outside can have a significant impact on your home’s value. A Texas Tech study on the impact of landscaping and house appearance revealed that curb appeal increased home prices by as much as 17%. If you’re in the market to sell your $300,000 home, that’s a boost of more than $50,000!

Maintain Your Property Before It’s Time To Sell

Regular landscaping services maintain your property year round. While landscaping companies do offer large, one-time services to clear your property before you sell, it’s no substitute for landscaping that is nurtured through all seasons.

Shaped hedges with new growth, mature flower beds with seasonal blooms, and a healthy weed-free lawn are all signs that you take pride in your landscaping.

Motivate Neighbors To Elevate Curb Appeal Efforts

If you’re meticulous about your landscaping and you’ve ever lived next to someone who’s not-so-enthusiastic, you know how frustrating it can be. It’s normal to want to live in an attractive neighborhood where people take care of their yards, and sometimes it takes one person making the first move to elevate their own curb appeal efforts before neighbors begin following suit.
