Today we have a guest post, courtesy of Rob Steen, which looks at how tidying up that garden area can help you sell your home.
Anyone who has ever watched any of the many home improvement or selling programmes on television must be aware of the term ‘kerb appeal’ and how important it is when selling your home.
Although it isn’t necessarily a fair assumption, many buyers are put off by a messy garden as they assume it means that the seller is a bit slapdash and the house might be the same under the superficial tidiness. Unfair or not, this is an easy problem to solve in very few steps and with a nice tidy garden you are more likely to achieve your asking price, and in record time, too.
If your garden is really untidy, chances are you are not one of nature’s gardeners and so you might be a bit overwhelmed by the task ahead of you especially if you want to sell your house fast. Just hacking and slashing is not really an answer to the kerb appeal issue, because bushes and trees that have been recently chopped usually look a little sad and forlorn. Start by cutting them back a little, leaving plenty of healthy growth to the fore so that they look healthy and established. Then clear the ground beneath them and think about some planting strategies, which will largely depend on the time of year.
