5 Landscaping Tips To Sell Your House In Roswell

Curb appeal is what allows buyers to form that critical first impression of your house. And landscaping is a hugely important element of curb appeal. In fact, attractive, well-maintained landscaping can add up to 10% (or more) to the value of your home. So it’s worthwhile even if you hire professional landscapers. Either way, here are 5 landscaping tips to sell your house in Roswell – because you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

1. Get Rid of Dead Plants

Probably the first thing you should do in enhancing landscaping to sell your house in Roswell is to get rid of all the dead plants. No matter how good the rest of your yard looks, those dead plants will be eyesores that draw attention. So pull up and replace dead shrubs and plants in beds. If you have any dead or bare spots in your lawn, reseed and fertilize. Even if you don’t have to time to replace dead plants, you’re better off getting rid of them than letting them stay and detract from what does look nice.

2. Lay Down New Mulch

Landscaping to sell your house in Roswell also means putting down new mulch beds, especially in perennial beds. Flower beds can be a focal point, but no matter how beautiful the flowers are, if the mulch is old and dirty and faded, those beds can be a turnoff for buyers. New mulch, though, makes the beds look fresh and new, drawing a buyer’s eye with aesthetic appeal. If you are uncertain about the best mulch to use, consult your agent for some tips.

3. Add Some Color

Green is good, but you need some color too if you want to sell your house inRoswell. Accents that pop with color are the way to go. Make sure your lawn is its healthiest, lushest, and greenest, and then add the color to emphasize the lawn. You can add color with annuals in strategically placed plastic or terra cotta pots. Place these in the entryway, on the front porch, and along the driveway. Remember, though, that these are accents and highlights, so don’t go overboard.

4. Add Some Lights

Potential buyers aren’t, of course, very likely to view your home at night, but you never know when they’ll drive by at night to have another, clandestine look at your house. That means, then, that adding some lighting is an important part of landscaping to sell your house in Roswell. Outdoor lamps and solar lights along a walkway or path are a nice touch. Small details like this matter to buyers. Spotlights to highlight and showcase certain areas at night are also a nice addition. You can get LED spotlights for under $30.

5. Fix Irrigation Problems

And if you have any issues with the irrigation system, be sure to fix those. These repairs can sometimes be fairly costly, and you don want buyers to think they’ll have to foot the bill. This, then, is another important aspect of landscaping to sell your house in Roswell. It’s also a good idea to provide buyers information about the irrigation schedule if you have an automatic system. The more information you provide, the more they will feel they can trust you.

Potential buyers appreciate appealing, well-maintained landscaping and are willing to pay more for it. Studies have found that quality landscaping can add from 5.5% to 12.7% to the value of a home. So it’s worth it even if you have to hire professional landscapers. For more ideas on landscaping to add value and to sell your house in Roswell, talk to your agent. Your real estate will know what buyers want in your area and can guide you accordingly.

Roswell’s Perfect Spot Top Producing Real Estate Agent & Lacrosse Mama IT'S THE PERFECT SPOT Hi, I’m Tania (pronounced Tan - like a SUN-TANya, not TONya). Not to digress, but I get this question all the time. My husband Doug & I have lived here in Roswell since 2002 and we have 1 son and 3 girls. All of them play lacrosse, so when I’m not out showing and selling houses, doing walk throughs, attending closing celebrations, taking continuing education classes, attending seminars, watching HGTV or jogging with my dogs, you’ll find me on the side lines of a lacrosse field cheering for my kids and their teams! I’ve been in Real Estate right here in Roswell since 2007. Currently, I average about 95%+ of my business comes from referral, so it’s critical that I connect with my clients from the beginning and spend some time discussing what their goals are, so we can create a plan that makes sense for them. I’ve been able to sell homes for more money and in less time than the average agent in Atlanta. That means your house is on the market for less time, so you can move on to your next phase of life... and have more money too! Being in the top 10% of all real estate agents in Atlanta, means I’m doing more business so I deal with the majority of bumps that can come up during a transaction so that we are better prepared how to handle anything that comes our way. This is the biggest investment for most of us, and I want this to be a great experience for you too! I’m not a transactional real estate agent, I’m a FULL - SERVICE RELATIONAL REALTOR®. I am here to help you and your family (including your family pets! ) through the entire process, well before it’s time to put your house on the market to sell or time to buy a new house, and well after we’ve close on your new perfect spot to call home. Sometimes we need to come up with a plan to save up for that dream house for a year or two or even work with my lenders to craft a credit repair or improvement plan so you qualify for a better loan option and rate. Often times, my buyers have to sell first, but they don’t want to put their house on the market before they find the perfect spot to call home and buy. So we have a vicious cycle of not enough homes (or the right homes) on the market when you need to buy. Don’t worry, this is where my networking skills really help you out. I keep a secret list of homes not on the market. And many times, you can tell me a specific neighborhood you want to live in, and I can FIND someone who might consider selling to you. I go the extra mile to make sure we find or sell your perfect spot to call home. I’m your life time real estate advisor! Many referred to me as the high energy Roswell Real Estate Expert. It's where I live, work and play!
