I know that curb appeal is important. A house that is landscaped is more appealling to the buyer however, I tell my clients the most important thing is having everything clean and trimmed. For just a little investment you can add mulch and a few annuals and if the shrubs are trimmed and YOUR GRASS is cut this can make a huge difference to a potential buyer.
I hope this helps!
