An elegant home landscaping design increases real estate value. By how much? Well, the average figure yielded by studies over the years is a range of from 5% to 10%. Let’s just use the 5% number as an example, even though that figure is on the high end. Putting that percentage increase into perspective: for real estate valued in the $2,000,000 – $3,000,000 range (before considering its home landscaping), an effective home landscaping design could add $3,000,000 to its value. How often do you get to make a $3,000,000 decision? Get the idea? The home landscaping issue amounts to a major decision in your life.
It’s important that such decisions not be based on arbitrary ideas, or criteria overly personalized. This is not the time to get in touch with your inner self. In making a $3,000,000 decision about a stock investment, you’d want hard, objective facts to guide you, right? At the very least, you’d like to explore the ideas of others, wouldn’t you? Well, you need to seek the same kinds of guides in the matter of home landscaping design.
But what might those guides be? And how do you ascertain what kinds of home landscaping represent the current trends for the real estate market? Fortunately, the resources for home landscaping design ideas are so numerous that your challenge will be not in finding the ideas, but in sifting through all of them and prioritizing. In addition to the selling trends, you’ll always want to provide your home landscaping with as much potential as possible for fall color and beautiful winter scenes — because this never goes out of style. In our next blog there will be just a few tips for mining home landscaping ideas.
