Why having a neat and tidy garden will help sell your property quicker.
Selling your house or your property is always a tricky business. You’re looking at everything you’ve spent so much time with and had countless memories with, except this time, it’s from a commercial perspective, and you have to make sure that the property you’ve owned for years is as saleable as possible. This is especially harder if you’ve spent more than just a few years in a certain place and now have to sell it off. But confronting things head on – it’s always helpful to just accept that what you own is now up for sale and is going to need validation from people who have no connection with what you consider special. One of the most important aspects of going through this process is making sure that elevation and the exterior of your house is attractive to anyone who’s going to be looking to buy it.
Just put yourself in the shoes of the buyer: once you’re looking at a house from a critical angle, the first impression makes a huge difference. And one of the first impressions any buyer is going to have of your house, is your garden. Having a well groomed, well kept and tidy garden increases the curb value of your property. It tells the buyer not just that the house they’re looking at has a beautiful exterior but also that it has been taken care of properly and that it is probably in good condition from the inside too. Compare this with having a shabby, disorganised garden welcoming your buyer at the entrance, and discouraging them from proceeding any further.
Having a well kept garden has several aspects to it. It should be well groomed, clean, organised and perhaps have a few different flowers and plants to look homey and comfy to anyone viewing. If someone’s looking to buy a house on a quick basis, they’re probable to attach much of their perception of the house to its exterior – and that includes everything from the front door, to the windows, to the parking space and of course, the garden.
The bottom line is this: if you’re looking to sell your house quickly and you’re going to be investing some money to refurbish your house and make it more commercially appealing: your garden must be one of your top priorities and must be allocated a sufficient budget. What must you do? Call up your local gardener or do whatever it takes to make your garden look prettier in order to amp up the look of your house, and help it sell as quickly as possible. Happy House Selling!
