Turn Daily Landscaping Tasks into Added Home Value

The Indianapolis summer season usually means yard work and more time spent on maintaining plants. Your yard is part of your home, so you should treat it as an extension of just that. Remember to reflect your taste, customizing the landscape to be your own, while keeping in mind the future home selling advantages.

 

According to the National Association of Home Builders, most home buyers seek landscaping that adds “functionality and resale value,” rather than “frills and lifestyle.” It sounds like there are limitations to your outdoor projects, but that’s not the case. Just keep in mind not to go to risky with the lawn adornments and plant selections.

 

Good landscaping can add up to 28% to the overall value of a house, says landscape economist John Harris in a recent HouseLogic article, and cut its time on the market 10% to 15%. Even taking your landscaping to the next level, upgrading from good to excellent can add to the value too.

 

Simple things such as adding trees (proven to reduce stress) can be a fun outdoor activity on those beautiful Saturday afternoons in Indy. Landscape your home for yourself, while keeping in mind that it could be sold to another person one day. It is a good investment and with the right tools, a great way to grab attention from future prospects.
