While driving by homes listed for sale by owners and REALTORS we noticed some of them do not mow or have lawn services. Everyone knows that first impressions and lack of curb appeal drives buyers away from otherwise well maintained homes. It also gives the impression that the home is vacant and opens the door to vandalism and attracts thieves. Because the properties are not maintained they could be in violation of local ordinances as well. Another impression a buyer gets is the property is Bank Owned or a foreclosed property which may or may not be the case which hurts the value of the property.
In summary, we know that first impressions matter and the lawn can provide a wonderful or a poor introduction to the rest of your property. But the real question is: does a well-maintained lawn help sell a home? “Absolutely!” a resounding chorus of real estate experts would shout. When comparing two homes of equal value, the one with the better lawn will open up a buyer to considering the home. My experience as a Previous Real Estate Broker Owner for many years has taught me that there is a direct correlation to landscaping, curb appeal and perceived value.
