The yard is often times the first thing potential buyers notice about your home. If the landscaping hasn't been taken care of it can look like an overwhelming amount of work to a prospective buyer and they'll likely take that first impression with them through the rest of the home.
If you have a high maintenance yard, make sure it's well taken care of before showings. Trees are a valuable asset! Whether they’re in your yard or just around the neighborhood, having well-kept mature trees can increase your home’s value.
Curb appeal from the street, makes the home look clean, fresh, and inviting. Fresh landscaping and flowers won't change the size or location, but they certainly add charm.
When two homes are identical in the same neighborhood, a higher price may come down to something as simple as a more attractive, manicured garden.
