It’s estimated that upgrading your home’s landscaping can boost the overall value of your home by almost 12%. So while it’s tempting to spend a great deal of time improving things indoors – especially during the winter months – there’s much to be said for improving your home’s curb appeal by upgrading your landscaping.
In this issue, we’ll talk about why landscaping is so important and share a few somewhat surprising ways you can add to your home’s value.
It shows that you pay attention to detail and gives the impression that your entire property is properly maintained. Aesthetics are everything when it comes to selling a home, and improvements that will capture a prospective buyer’s eye are definitely a wise investment.
The idea is to give the prospective buyer something they want. A tree that is properly sized and strategically placed, for example, can be especially pleasing to the eye, but it also adds real quantitative value by shielding your home from the summer heat and serving as a good anchor for a hammock.
There are quite a few projects you can undertake to add a significant increase to your home’s value. Remember, landscaping goes far beyond simply mowing the lawn, even though that’s vitally important. Landscaping can include other projects involving decks and patios, flowerbeds, water features, fire features, irrigation systems and more.
Whether it’s providing regular lawn maintenance, helping you to select the right trees and plants or working with you to design a whole new landscape for your property, we’d love to work with you in adding value to your San Diego home.
