“If a landscaping change is positive, it can often enhance price and reduce a home’s time on the market,” said Appraisal Institute President Richard L. Borges II, MAI, SRA…    [Source: “Landscaping Can Impact Home Values,…” Appraisal Institute, May 15, 2013.]
“Landscaping can increase your property value by close to 15%…investing in the services of a landscape design professional will optimize the value of a home…landscape expenditures significantly increase perceived home value and will result in a higher selling price than homes with a minimal landscape…”    [Source: “The Effect of Landscape Plants on Perceived Home Value”, by Alex X.

PROPERTY VALUES The appearance of property can enhance or kill a sale, increase or erode your home’s market value. If the property around a home is not quite good enough, it’s one more hurdle for a prospective buyer. Property needing a face lift, or needing an entire overhaul in design, can really mess up a good selling opportunity by either turning away buyers before you even show your home or by moving your home closer to the bottom of buyers’ short lists. These days the HOUSING MARKET IS RED HOT. Why work from a disadvantage when you can change all that by contacting Picture It Landscape and Design to help make your property reflect its fuller value. Even experts agree, (see above), that a landscaped property may help speed up a sale and allow for a higher selling price.
