Don’t Skimp on Landscaping When Renovating or Remodeling to Sell Your Home

Collier Swecker video blogs about how many people skimp on landscaping when they renovate or remodel a home to prepare it for sale. I am asked frequently whether a home owners particular home improvement project will increase the value of their home, but I am hardly ever asked about whether a landscaping project will increase the value or increase the marketability of the owners home. Remember in this market that homebuyers are looking for any reason not to buy your home. You do not want them to decide not to buy your home before they even open the front door because the curb appeal is so bland or bad. A good number of our clients have waited to the end of their home improvement projects to tackle the landscaping and end up with no funds for landscaping because they overspent inside of the home. Landscaping can provide an incredible return on your investment. If you have any comments or questions about making landscaping a priority when selling or renovating your home, email me at or visit my website at
