Landscaping to Sell Your Home

ADDED ON April 2, 2017 1 COMMENTS

Landscaping to sell your home Selling your home in today’s real estate market can involve “home staging.”  But what about the exterior of your Los Angeles home?  It’s called “curb appeal.”  Learn more about landscaping to sell your home.

Remember – the landscaping surrounding your home is both the first and the last impression your buyer will have.  Make them both memorable!  Make a good impression on the buyer.   In the Los Angeles area, a home’s outside space can be as important as the indoor space!  It’s like an extra room on your home.

Your home’s first impression is the outside.  Is your landscaping reflecting a true picture of your property?   Let’s take a look.  And, it means putting on a critical “eye” as if you are the buyer.

As you arrive at your house, and exit the car, what is your first impression?  Is there a clear path to the front door?  Are the gardens well kept?  Is the back yard also memorable … in a good way?  This means toys and gardening equipment is put away and out of sight.  Remove clutter in the yard just like you would remove clutter inside your Los Angeles home.

If you need help, it may be time to consider hiring a gardener or getting help from family and friends to make some needed changes and cleanup.  A gardener or landscaper can help clean up and make a great impression on a buyer.  You’d be amazed at how this will transform the exterior of your Los Angeles home into a pleasing space.

If you are looking for a gardener, ask your real estate agent, or family, friends or neighbors for a referral.   The gardener should be able to give you ideas to make the grounds more eye-pleasing without spending a lot of money.   You might want to consider hiring the gardener for regular maintenance (weekly, bi-weekly,or monthly service) to help maintain your Los Angeles property during the time your home is on the market.  It may help reduce the stress on you while you are selling your home.

If you do decide to hire a gardener, you will want to discuss the cost,  as well as liability insurance and worker’s compensation coverage before entering into any agreement.

“Curb appeal” is a great way to help sell your home in Los Angeles.  Landscaping to sell your home can attract potential buyers and also mean that your home will sell for more money, and that your Los Angeles home will sell faster.  It’s just one more way to make your property “shine”!
