Yep, the house was exactly the same as the one next door, but the difference was a bunch of fruits in the back yard. The backyard had grapes, apples, plums, and even an Asian pear tree.
This house wasn't anything special and neither was the neighborhood, but because this seller planted these items 15 years ago, today, it helped them sell their home! If you own a home and have the room for trees, and want pies or canned fruit, and want to increase the perceived value of your home in a few years, PLANT A TREE!

I was amazed at the difference a backyard made. For more information on great trees to plant in your yard to increase the value of your property in the Pacific Northwest, feel free to call or e-mail me anytime.
