That’s definitely a number to consider!
You’ve taken all of the steps to prepare your home for the market. You’ve made all of the beds, painted everything from the trim to the walls, and maybe even staged the entire house to look happily lived-in, but what about your lawn? Many don’t know but a well landscaped, clean lawn could increase your home’s value by 10 to 15 percent.
Below are a few tips to ensure your lawn is sale-ready and looking it’s absolute best.
Getting Your Lawn Sale-Ready
- First, avoid too many lawn ornaments. We know you might have a darling lawn gnome collection, however, it’s best to keep your home looking neutral while trying to sell.
- Additionally, pull your weeds and plant some lovely annuals that will look beautiful all year. Don’t let your garden fall victim to looking drab.
- Most importantly, keep your lawn looking green and healthy. Regular fertilization, mulching, and cutting are the best ways to make sure your lawn is immaculate for any potential buyers.
