Great curb appeal goes a long way toward attracting buyers to a home that's
for sale. Many of our sales have been generated by a "For Sale" sign
in front of a home because buyers who admire a home's exterior often prove to be
our most valuable prospects.
An investment in attractive landscaping can help your home sell more quickly. If
you have a moderately green thumb, you can get a lot of free advice from local
nurseries. They can give you tips on what will look good in your yard,
considering the time of year, the available light, and the type of plants that
do well in the area. You will probably be able to choose from many attractive
low-maintenance plants that will addcolor and vitality to your yard.
Whatever the season, a few dollars invested in your front yard will usually reap
much greater benefits than your original investment.
