I liked this post from Barb Szabo so much I had to re-blog it. Her photos show what a difference landscaping can make in a property's appearance. The landscaping should complement the house, just as a hair style should complement one's face. Enjoy!
Does Your Home Need to Lose 10 pounds? Or a Little Nip and Tuck?
I show a lot of homes throughout the year and I can honestly say that the first thing I notice is that famous "curb appeal" or lack thereof! I can also say that most of the time when a home is well kept on the outside it is well kept on the inside. One of the worst offenders to curb appeal is overgrown landscaping. I don't mean a few bushes that need to be trimmed. I mean you can barely see the house! And the funny thing about pictures is that they really tell the truth, much like seeing myself in a swimsuit!
I don't think a recent client of mine will mind if I show her before and after pictures.
They have only had this home for about 4 weeks and what a difference!!
If your home will be on the market soon take the time to take some pictures because they really do tell the truth. You might find (if it's not completely out of hand) that a little nip and tuck will make a world of difference!
