Tis The Season To Use Imagination

My yardman made his last visit to my house last week, until spring. He raked up most of the last remaining leaves, and the trees are almost bare.

Homes can look forlorn in the winter, and not as appealing as in the spring or summer.  When looking at homes in winter to buy, buyers should try to envision the bare trees with leaves, and flowers in the landscaping once next spring and summer get here.  


If the house is what you need, and where you want it, don’t let the winter landscaping discourage you from making an offer.


Because so many buyers can’t imagine the home in its prime beauty with flowers, green trees and shade, and pass on the home, you may be able to negotiate a better deal. But don’t count on it.


Remember that landscaping can always change. Location can’t change, and square feet and arrangement of rooms are more difficult to change.  So go for the home that is right for you, even if it looks a bit sad temporarily.

We do not have the winter landscape issue but for some foreclosed properties the plants are starved for water.  Yet many get a fabulous home and correct the problem.
