Whether you are moving into a new house or selling a rehabbed property, it is crucial to make your home’s exterior look just as great as, if not better than, the interior. Curb appeal continues to be a serious factor in whether or not possible buyers will be interested in your property, so your landscape should be in its best shape possible when you decide to sell. Let us take a peek at how your trees affect curb appeal and learn about a couple of ways to prepare your trees and landscape for a smooth and successful home sale!
Why Your Trees Matter to Your Home’s Sale
When you’re looking for a brand new house, what are the primary things you are concerned with? Perhaps you need plenty of indoor space to suit your growing family. Or you are looking for updated fixtures or a more modern home design. No matter the reasoning for finding a new house, there are two things that every homeowner is looking for in a property, curb appeal and safety. Your trees can offer you both or neither. There are ways to ensure the former and maybe even increase your home’s overall value when it is time to sell.
Remove Fallen Leaves and Branches
During the winter and autumn, a few of your trees might shed branches onto your roof or lawn, in addition to any leaves. Raking the leaves consistently throughout these seasons is vital for keeping your lawn healthy and offers a well-maintained landscape to possible buyers.
Address Potential Safety Hazards
A big, beautiful, tall tree on your property can be an excellent selling point, but if it poses a severe safety risk to the new owners or to your home itself, it can turn them away instead. Leaning trees that are in real danger of falling over and trees that have big branches hanging over your house should be inspected and taken care of by an expert to reduce and eliminate the safety hazards.
Consider Hiring Tree Removal Services
If you’ve got any dead or diseased trees on your property, it might be tempting to cut them down before your home’s sale. However, this could leave you with an unsightly stump in your lawn that lowers the overall curb appeal. Having a certified arborist from Maryland come to inspect them and provide you with professional removal services could allow you to get rid of any unsightly stumps in a safe manner.
