Today we’re going to talk about how landscaping can help improve your home’s value. Elmer from Moran’s Lawn Care is joining us to offer his expertise.

According to Elmer, good landscaping makes a great first impression on homebuyers. It tells them that you take care of your home and gives them confidence that you’ve prepared the inside properly as well. If the landscaping isn’t good, it will have the opposite effect and could turn buyers off before they even step foot in your home.

Moran’s zeroes in on the landscaping’s imperfections and corrects them.

Elmer and his team have helped a lot of our selling clients keep their lawns in good shape throughout their time on the market. They like to focus on beauty and safety. If any errant branches could pose a safety hazard or there are unkempt areas of the yard, Moran’s zeroes in on those imperfections and corrects them. 

It’s a one-two punch that goes a long way in keeping your home’s value high. If branches are rubbing on the roof or windows, taking care of those will be an additional benefit and help you on inspections and appraisals.

How much does it cost to get your home show-ready? According to Elmer, the average is around $1,200 for the full service, but it’s worth the money. Good landscaping can increase your sale price anywhere from 5% to 12%, which justifies the price tag.
