Good Morning....As for the tree stumps in the front yard, I would say yes, have them removed. As it was stated in another answer to your question, if is going to be part of the first impression people get when they drive up to your home. Right now the buyers we are seeing, want everything move in ready, unless they are getting a real bargain. The less they have to do themselves, the more they like it.
Pricing is also a big factor in houw your home compares with others on the market, and take into consideration how soon you want to sell your home. Do you have time to wait for the right offer, or do you want to get an offer right away?
When selling your home there are many factors to consider, and I agree, before you start to do any work to it, speak to a Realtor that you want to partner with to get your home sold. Sit down, discuss what your goal is and the best marketing plan to acheive that.
I would love to have the opportunity to help you with this home sale. Feel free to contact me at anytime!
