Curb appeal can make all the difference when it comes to selling real estate. The first impression left by homes for sale in Fort Mill, SC can lead to an offer at full asking price – or cause real estate agents and their clients to drive on by. If you’re putting your home on the market, make sure prospective buyers see the full potential of your property. The REALTORS® from the The Snipes Team at Keller Williams have three landscaping tips for curb appeal that will help you get the most out of your home.
- Remove dead or dying plants – Sometimes gardening is tough in our hot South Carolina summers. While it’s normal for some plants to droop a little in the heat, it’s not good if they’ve turned brown or have died. Dead plants can also send a false message to buyers that the home wasn’t properly maintained. Clear out any plants that aren’t thriving. Check your yard, planters, and window boxes, too.
- Balance your landscape – If everything in your yard is green, it can make your home seem plain. The same goes for the height of your plants and shrubs. Mix things up by adding color and varying heights. Keep everything trimmed and weeded and make sure the lawn is mowed regularly.
- Add seasonal flowers – Seasonal flowers are generally easy to plant and take care of. Adding these new plants keeps things looking fresh and vibrant throughout the year.
