A Professional Landscape Design May Help You Sell Your Home
Statistics show that professional landscaping can boost home prices by 5-11%.
A seven-state survey results showed that relatively large landscape expenditures significantly increased perceived home value and will result in a higher selling price than homes with a minimal landscape.
→ Design sophistication and plant size were the landscape factors that most affected value.
→ The resulting increase in "curb appeal" of the property may also help differentiate a home in a subdivision where house styles are similar and thereby attract potential buyers into a home. This advantage is especially important in a competitive house market.
