Landscaping For a Quick House Sale

Landscaping can bring a recovery value of 100 to 200 per cent for landscaping at selling time.

Money Magazine did an extensive investigation into the value that landscaping adds to a property and determined that well done landscaping enhances sales appeal, increasing the actual speed of the sale.

Trees are the best investment in a landscape. As soon as you plant them they begin to rise in value and appreciate over time as any solid investment should. Trees can enhance property values anywhere from five to 20 per cent.

Homes with “excellent” landscaping can expect a sale price about six to seven percent higher than an equivalent house with “good” landscaping.
