Are you happy in your home and in your neighborhood? Excellent! Here is a tip for a simple property improvment you can do now, and -just in the off-chance that sometime in the future you decide to move: You will have planned well and made a simple improvement that will pay off plentifully in the future and a significant increase to your property value.
Plant some shrubs and trees, create a backyard oasis and perfect privacy.
One of the toughest things to overcome when buyers visit a home for sale is any perceived lack of privacy. Buyers value privacy and will often object to unimproved yards and exposed streets. Regardless of how much time they plan to spend outside it is an expensive objection for a seller to overcome. Prepare now and shield streets, proximity to neighbor or uninspiring lot borders and plant trees and shrubs. Live Oak and Montery Oak are generally evergreen trees that will last a lifetime. Fast growing shrubs include Wax leaf myrtles, and a cold-resistant and thick growing shrub is Verbenum. Flowering trees and shrubs will also offer a wonderful accent to your yard. Make the investment today while you can still enjoy the result and it will certainly add to your home value and eventual selling price.
