Not all home sellers have the time and money to invest in landscaping. We understand that not only your time is valuable, but your money is also. Moving is already a big burden on your bank account, so we’re here to help by telling you that even just a few simple nips and tucks to a yard can increase a home’s curb appeal, hopefully resulting in a nice return. Here are a few simple tricks to help maximize property value.
3 Easy Landscaping Tips For Home Sellers on a Budget
1. Lawn Upkeep
Keep a well-manicured lawn by mowing and watering it regularly to maintain a clean and vibrant appearance, as well as keeping it free of weeds. A dry lawn with dandelion pockets will not do anything for your curb appeal and will decrease property value. Don’t underestimate how incredibly important lawn care is!
2. Add Plants
Adding a few potted plants near the front of the house requires little gardening skill and drastically improves your home’s curb appeal. Additionally, annual flowers will be cheaper than perennials, so buy a few eye-catching colors to give your yard a few bright focal points.
Overgrown shrubs, bushes or smaller trees are unattractive to the eye. Grab your sheers and get to work by giving them a well-cared for appearance to continue increasing your curb appeal.
Easy right? With just a few easily completable landscaping tasks–that are compatible with anyone’s budget–you have upped your curb appeal. Happy home selling!
