As a real estate agent you probably already know the value that curb appeal has on properties that are for sale but are you sharing that with your sellers? Too many agents remain mum rather than risk offending their newly signed sellers. It seems to me if the objective is the same for both the agent and the seller, and that is to sell the property in the shortest amount of time for the greatest amount of money, then anything you might have to suggest should be taken with open ears.
So, what sells houses? Location, price, and looks are what sells a house. If someone doesn’t like the outside of your home they’re probably not going to set foot inside. That’s just how superficial many buyers are – they’re unable to see beyond the things they could easily change once they’re living there. While I could write a book with information on location and pricing a house to sell, a blog will need to suffice to give you a few tips on what will help your curb appeal.
You don’t have to be a garden designer or a horticulturist to have great looking gardens in the front of your home but you do have to put forth some effort. If you find that you aren’t able to handle the physical exertion required to clean up your gardens then by all means hire someone to come in and do it for you. If you live on Hilton Head Island you can hire a landscaping company or put an ad in the newspaper or Craig’s List for a gardener.
Whether you tend to your own gardens or hire someone to come and do it for you, something that will make all the difference in how great your gardens look is to apply pine bark after pulling out the weeds. Apply it 2-3” thick to hold back weeds. For convenience you can purchase Hilton Head SC bagged pine bark locally. It’s easier to transport in a car and doesn’t require a truck to move it. Furthermore, Hilton Head SC bagged pine bark will store easily without making a mess if you pick up more than you initially need.
Give it a try and you’ll see what a beautiful difference bark mulch will make on your gardens.
