Are you the process of considering selling this Spring? Have you already taken the clutter out of the inside of your home?? Whatever you may not be taking with you either sell, give it away or throw it away!! Now, let’s look at the outside like a discerning purchaser. Is color and green lacking on the lawn and flower beds??? What could you do at a reasonable price to spruce it up? An application of a quality slow release fertilizer 32-5-10 (Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potash) @ 5lbs per 1000 sq. ft. This will help green up your lawn over a 7-10 day period. Also, add some plant food to the landscape, Miracle Gro or any good fertilizer 10-10-10. Til & cultivate it into the soil. Contemplate what budget you have for adding plants to your landscape. Then, add a few flowering shrubs, everygreens etc by your walkway and front of your home. In the past the rule of thumb was for every $1.00 you spent on the outside of your property, you would get $5.00 back. I am not sure that is the situation today; but it will go along way in making your home stand out and curb appeal will be greatly enhanced. Also, make sure you make a well defined flowerbed and edge carefully. The nicer the look the better you can compete with all the other homes in your location or on the market. It will also give the positive impression, that you care about your property and take care of it.
It will be one less item on the buyers list to negotiate down the price!!
So beware, DON’T FORGET THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOME, DO SOMETHING…..
