It’s a little hard to imagine spring while most of the country digs out from under feet, not inches, of snow. However, before you know it, spring will arrive at our doorstep, and that signals the beginning of house-selling season. Sellers, it’s time to stage your landscape for potential buyers. In this market, all other things being approximately equal—square footage, interior layout, amenities, etc.,—the landscape can close the deal—or kill it.
Staging the landscape goes far beyond curb appeal. While curb appeal is critical in getting potential buyers to your front door, your property will sell on its merits and proper pricing. According to the Journal of Environmental Horticulture, you receive a return of $1.35 for every $1 you spend on the landscaping.
Many homeowners consider the patio and backyard an extension of the house. When properly staged, a hospitable outdoor environment is an additional selling point for those buyers.
