Are you thinking of putting your home up for sale?
Or has it been on the market for a minute now and no real bites? Fortunately/unfortunately, today’s market is still in the buyer’s hand. According to a 2013 National Realtor’s Association survey, 71% of buyers said curb appeal was important when choosing their new home. Curb appeal is what draws you to a home. It’s the perfect mix of visual charm, attention to detail and good upkeep.
With real-estate searches on Google increasing almost 253% in the past 4 years, having a “picture perfect” home is more important than ever. Business Insider states that a well maintained and attractive yard can fetch as much as a 200% return at resale. An easy and effective way to add value to your home is a with a freshly sodded yard.
But what about the drought?
With the drought issues still occurring, we are aware that sodding both the front and back yard might not be ideal. However, if you have a beautiful back deck, or walkway to your front door that could be highlighted by fresh sod, consider new sod for one area. By focusing on one area, you can enhance it’s strengths as well as revealing the potential for the other.
Having already sodded one, or both yards, relieves potential buyers of that cost and marks one more item off their list of items to do to make the house their home. By investing in your home’s curb appeal, you’re showing your confidence in your surrounding area and adding to it’s value as well.
