With summer right around the corner, this spring is the perfect time to get your landscaping and outdoor remodeling done! This 2018 Remodeling Impact Report explains how valuable upgrading outdoor landscaping is to your home and/or property. Although the report is a few months old, the same principles adhere to landscaping in 2019.

Highlights from the report:

  • Landscape maintenance and tree care recover 100 percent of the costs at the time of sale.
  • Among REALTORS®, 94 percent have suggested sellers improve their curb appeal before listing a home for sale.
  • Seventy-four percent of REALTORS® have suggested sellers complete a landscape maintenance program before attempting to sell, and 17 percent said the project most recently sealed a deal for them, resulting in a closed transaction.
  • Fifty-five percent of REALTORS® have suggested sellers perform a standard lawn care service before attempting to sell, and seven percent said the project most recently sealed a deal for them, resulting in a closed transaction.
