Real Estate Tips: Landscaping can boost your Home’s Potential

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Are you looking to sell your home in the near future? Or maybe your home has been sitting on the market for months. Either way, we have a way to make your home more appealing to potential homebuyers: Landscaping! As any Realtor will tell you, curb appeal plays a major role in the home buying process.

“Landscaping is going to add to the appeal of the property and it may sell quicker,” said John Bredemeyer, president of Omaha-based Realcorp.

Landscaping, Curb Appeal, and Real Estate Statistics

  1. 5%: That is the percentage of homebuyers that view a home online before visiting the home in person. If they don’t like what they see, they move on.
  2. 10%: That is the percentage of homebuyers that fail to see the potential in homes. So if your landscape looks rundown, you could be out of luck.
  3. 30 Seconds: That is the time it takes most homebuyers to make up their mind about a home when they first see it.
  4. 15-20%: That is how much improved curb appeal could boost your home’s value.

DIY Landscaping Tips to improve Curb Appeal

  2. Add a bit of Color: Consider planting flowers. It is simple. It is easy. And it is a great way to easily add color and appeal to any landscape.
