It’s no secret, homes just aren’t selling as fast as they once did. If you are trying to sell your home, your landscaping could be your best advertisement. If potential buyers are initially drawn in by your home’s curb appeal, you will be more likely to get them inside to tour your home and eventually make an offer. Here are 5 inexpensive tips to increase your home’s curb appeal and help you sell your home!
1 ) Add a few outdoor containers- Container plants, such as large tropicals, add considerable appeal doorways where potential buyers enter and exit the house. These displays also show the endless possibilities for designing with container plants.
2 ) Keep sticks and leaves picked up- Don’t make a potential buyer look at or walk over grass clippings, leaves, branches or pine cones. The tidier your home’s landscaping, the easier it will be to sell your home.
3 ) Trim- An easy way to spruce up your landscaping is to prune up any overgrown trees or shrubs near the home. This will not only make your home look nicer, but it can also highlight the architecture.
4 ) Plant some instant color- Seasonal colors can really makes the landscape pop, and flats of annuals are also relatively inexpensive. The experts at Brackman’s Stepping Stone Rock and Garden Center, LLC can help you decide whtehter several colors or a more monochromatic scheme fits in with the look of your home.
5 ) Clean and touch-up driveways, sidewalks and patios- Potential buyers notice things like dirty dirty patios, sidewalks with moss growing over, and cracked concrete. Pressure-washing driveways, patios, and sidewalks before putting your home on the market can increase your chances of selling. If you have a little extra budget, consider patching large cracks in sidewalks or driveways.
