What’s So Bad About An Overgrown Lawn???


Curb Appeal – your first in-person contact with prospective buyers. It creates that all-so-important first impression. If the outside looks shoddy, I wonder what the inside looks like? According to HomeGains’ 2009 National Survey, based on the 12 areas of improvement identified by real estate agents in their 2003 study, investing is landscaping the front and back yard can increase your home price by $1500-$2000 with an ROI (Return on Investment) of 473%. Of the real estate agents surveyed, 94% recommended doing some landscaping.
We recommended that this homeowner have all of the trees and bushes trimmed back and swept clean. Then we added a decorative “sun” and new doormat to her entryway and moved the more appealing outdoor furniture from her bedroom patio to the side patio. We immediately created a beautiful and inviting outdoor lounging area where buyers could imagine spending a lazy afternoon.
