When it comes to real estate, first impressions play a big role. Did you know it takes the average homebuyer just 30 seconds to form an opinion about a home? This means that curb appeal means everything. Okay, not everything. The interior of your home still matters, but a potential homebuyer won’t even set foot inside your home if the exterior is not up to their standards. So, what is the best way to improve your home’s curb appeal?
Landscaping & Real Estate: A Beautiful Landscape can add 20% to Home Value
That’s right, not only will professional landscaping help you sell your home, but improving the curb appeal of your home could increase its value by as much as 15-20%. That’s what we like to call a win-win. This is why the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) recommends you invest 10% of your home’s value in landscaping. The return on investment (ROI) makes it well worth it.
