Quickly boost your home’s value with landscaping curb appeal.
There are many different ways to increase the value of your home, and boosting landscaping curb appeal is one of the most cost-effective options for sellers. The first impression your home makes is key to whether a potential buyer will even take a look inside. According to the National Association of Realtors, curb appeal is important to 71 percent of homebuyers when choosing their home, with landscaping being the main aspect of curb appeal.
If you are curious how much a landscaping curb appeal investment could increase your home’s value, a Bankrate.com article suggested a landscaping investment could pay up to a 215 percent return in home value, while an investment in something like a kitchen renovation may be closer to 68 percent.
Even though many potential buyers have access to virtual tours, there is a good chance that a potential buyer has narrowed down his/her options based on a drive-by first impression of your house.
As Shelly Goldrich of Group Real Estates advises,
“Curb appeal is of the utmost importance when selling your home. Buyers will often make their opinion about your house before even getting out of the car. Be sure your front landscaping makes a good first impression.”Shelly Goldrich, The Group Real Estate
