I’m Listing My House: How Do I Improve its Curb Appeal?

Front Entry, Improve Curb Appeal, Landscaping, Tips and Advice

When getting ready to sell your home most people think about how to make the inside of the home look appealing to potential buyers. What many overlook is the importance of the first impression – curb appeal! Giving your home a curb facelift can bring more buyers through your door and increase the sale price.

You don’t have to break the bank to increase the buyer appeal of the front and even the back of your home.  A thorough garden tidy up, planting a few new plants or bushes can breathe new life into an entrance.

One of our clients decided that the builder grade patio stones were doing nothing to enhance the entryway of their Courtice, Ontario home.  In such a competitive housing market, they wanted their home to stand out against the competition.

Improving the livability of your back yard can also improve the experience of selling your home.  By showcasing the outdoor living space your home has to offer potential buyers, you are allowing them to visualize themselves relaxing and having fun in this inviting outdoor space.

The benefit of doing any landscaping is that it has staying power for increasing the value of your home.  So even if you are not planning on selling for the next few years, why not consider a landscape project?  A reclaimed backyard space  – like the one at this Ajax, Ontario home showcasing a new patio, blooming rock garden and custom gas firepit  – will give you enjoyment and help your home hold its value when you are ready to sell – unlike spending money on painting walls or new fixtures.

If you would like to explore creative ways to improve the value of your home through landscaping JRC Landscaping would be delighted to discuss your options and provide you with a free quote.

Work was done quickly and looks great. The workers tidied up every day and when the work was finished there was NO mess left around. I am very pleased and will recommend them to others.
