Do you think landscaping doesn’t make much difference in the curb appeal of a home? Think again! Look at the two photos below of a Fort Walton Beach Florida home I have listed for sale.
Isn’t the difference in the “Before” and “After” photos are striking? In the Fort Walton Beach market area, this curb-appeal change may bring the homeowner $5,000 – $10,000 more in sale price. The investment? Only a few hundred dollar for wood chips and cleaning the exterior siding. Sure, if this home already looked good, and just a few flowers were added, it might help with “salability”, but not so significantly dollar-wise. But what if a home lacks any landscaping pizazz, and has perhaps overgrown bushes, weeds, and no obvious attention? That’s when the return-on-investment can be huge.
Finally, buyers’ first online impressions can make or break the decision to see your home at all. The more buyers who want to view your property – the more quickly it will sell. Since about 90% of buyers search for Fort Walton Beach Florida homes online, you need to pay attention to curb appeal!
