Deciding to sell your home is exciting and stressful. You have a lot to prepare for, but the most daunting part is often getting your house ready for showings, open houses, and prospective buyers driving by. You need to make sure your home’s exterior looks as good as possible. Otherwise, you’ll end up detracting from your home’s drive-up appeal and could prevent people from wanting to tour your home in the first place. While it is possible to spruce up your yard on your own, it’s almost always best to leave it to a pro. Here’s why you should hire an experienced Denver landscaper
when you’re selling your home.
They Know What Works
When you plant things on your own, it’s easy to accidentally crowd plants or invest in options that will take months to grow when you only have a few weeks. This can leave you with an underperforming and underwhelming exterior right when your first open house rolls around.
When you hire a professional, you get to rely on their knowledge to create a yard that will be the envy of the neighborhood. They know what works, which plants will grow quickly, and which ones need to be planted in specific parts of your yard. They’ve tried everything in the past and are better able to work with your tight time-line.
Saves You Time
Selling your house is time-consuming. You’ll have more than enough work on your hands just getting the interior of your house ready for showings. You don’t have time to spend in the yard, helping your landscaping recover from a long winter.
Hiring a landscaping team to take care of the tasks for you will save you time and help reduce your stress levels when you have dozens of other tasks to worry about. Even better, you can get them to come back every week or two to keep your plants looking pristine while your home is on the market.
Gives Your Lawn Much-Needed TLC
While your garden beds and accent plants are there to help add color and make your house pop, many homebuyers actively look at the condition of your lawn when judging your house. When it’s in good shape and growing as well as others on your block, they’ll be more interested in your house. However, if it’s brown, patchy, or overgrown, they’ll be less enthusiastic about touring your house.
Hiring a professional will let you give your lawn the TLC it needs to look great anytime someone drives by. They’ll handle everything from fertilizing to mowing so you can focus on keeping your home clean inside so surprise showings won’t feel quite so nerve-wracking!
