Itâ€™s a guiding principal among Realtors that superior landscaping adds value to any housing for sale. In New York, different studies arrive at differing answers for how great that incremental increase actually is, but most agree that it lies somewhere in a range between 5% and 14%.
Needless to say, that is huge! Since there isnâ€™t anything like a universal way to define â€˜good,â€™ â€˜bad,â€™ or even â€˜averageâ€™ landscaping, you canâ€™t pin down its precise value. Nevertheless, what is certain is that in offering any housing for sale, the result will be greatly influenced by the first impression the property makes â€“ its â€˜curb appealâ€™. Landscaping is a great part of that.
The landscaping term covers a wide swath of meanings including just about every part of a Brooklyn property that isnâ€™t physically part of the house itself. Improving it can be simple and inexpensive â€“ or not!
Attractive landscaping adds a welcoming factor to any Brooklyn housing for sale. Moreover, there is another real benefit we donâ€™t often think about: the increased pride of ownership that enriches the home owning experience beyond its dollars-and-cents value.
This fall, with inventories trending lower, some homeowners may suspect that now could be the right time to list their Brooklyn home. If you are one of them, do give me a call to talk strategy and the best way to take seasonal advantage of your own property.
