If you were selling your home and it was a little rough around the edges outside, would you trim it and do a bit of landscaping to make it look more inviting? More and more realtors recommend their clients take some time to update their yard to increase the curb appeal to those driving by and seeing plants and fences.

Is taking the time and money to landscape worth it for selling your home?

Time Matters

If the answer is yes, then it comes down to a matter of time. Landscaped yards will sell a house faster than messy or unkempt yards. When you’re trying to sell, the faster the home sells, the better.

Curb appeal matters because not only will you make a positive impression on potential buyers who intentionally come to see your home, but also for people who drive by as they check out the neighborhood and look to see if there are houses on sale.

Making your house look like one they don’t want to pass or one they will remember is extremely important!

How to Up the Appeal

There are many ways to add curb appeal to your yard, some more involved than others. Do what you’re happy with doing and what’s comfortable to you, but here are some suggestions to try:

  • A new fence. Putting up a beautiful ornamental fence or adding a classic picket fence around your yard can do a lot to boost your yard’s appeal.
  • Well-kept plants. Planting the plants you love, keeping them watered and free of insects, and the time you spend making sure they’re well-kept makes them stand out.
  • Walkways. New walkways make a significant difference too, creating a feeling of thoughtful planning rather than chaotic and unclear.

Time to start planning those projects you have been dreaming of all winter long. Whether it is a new fence to add to your backyard living area or some maintenance on your existing fence. Now is the perfect time to start that project. In designing your fence there are several different options to choose from -- Aluminum and Custom Wood are two of the most popular fence types. However, plenty homeowners are perfectly satisfied with galvanized or the vinyl coated chain-link. The vinyl privacy is also a great option.

For those of you that have a wooden fence now is the perfect time to protect your investment by staining and sealing. This ensures that your investment will be well protected as well as adding a beautiful color to the fence.
