In many instances, sellers wait until they are about to put their home on the market before they put energy and attention into improving their home’s landscaping. As a result, in an attempt to create some instant curb appeal, a professional landscaper is called in the 11th hour and the seller ends up spending more money on landscaping than originally necessary.
So why wait until you think about moving to enhance your home’s curb appeal? Even if a big project isn’t what you’re looking for, planting a few new bushes or bulbs each year (perhaps ones that bloom at different times and also don’t need a great deal of looking after!) can offer a few benefits. Obviously you’ll be able to enjoy a better looking landscape, but you’ll also profit more from your sale if you haven’t invested a great deal of money just prior to the transaction. Furthermore, good looking lawns tend to increase the real estate values in the entire neighborhood, which can result in an increase in your home equity!
