When you meet someone for the first time – what do you notice? If you’re like many of us, that initial impression is largely determined by outside appearance. Believe it or not, that concept rings true with your home, too!
That’s right, your home can foreshadow clues regarding your personality and sense of style, and its landscaping tells a story as well. Is your landscape sending the message you WANT to convey?
You want to make sure you stand out amongst the other properties on the market – they are your competition !
Is your home sending the correct message? Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
If not, it may be time to consider hiring a gardener or getting help from family and friends to make some needed changes as soon as possible. The right gardener can transform the most jungle-like backyard into a beautifully manicured area of peace and tranquility, in as little as a day!
Before hiring a gardener, ask friends or neighbors for referrals. Some key points to discuss are how often you would like service and what you need included at each visit.
Don’t be afraid to ask your new gardener for help with ideas and improvements that could increase your property value. You might even request that any extra cut blooms be left for you to use inside your home.
Your home will create the best impression possible and deliver the message you want to share with potential home buyers – that your home has been well maintained. Your efforts will pay off in a faster sale !
