landscaping

We all know about “curb appeal”, but how much does landscaping add to your home value?  If you read the article when you click on the picture above, you will see that the writer did some research showing anywhere from 100percent to 1,000 percent ROI on landscaping.  Other web sites estimated an increase in value on your home from 5% to 20%.  The author’s source commented “If you are looking for a specific number, good luck”!  If you don’t have a lot of money to invest, a couple of cheap alternatives to major landscaping are:

“Hire a mow and blow guy for a few hundred dollars to do a full yard cleanup and plant a few flowering annuals.”

“If you only have a few hundred dollars, paint the front door and get new house numbers.  Improve whatever the eye will see from the street”

Bottom line is – make the curb appeal of your home as good as you can afford!  And don’t forget that OWN THIS HOME TEAM is here to help with ALL of your real estate needs!
