Purchasing a home is already a large enough investment, so much so that we even think about how much we can sell our new homes for while purchasing them. Good homeowners try to take a look into the future and figure out the best ways to keep their home worth what it should be worth. Part of that endeavor is taking on landscaping projects meant to spruce up your outdoor space and make your home more appealing. Adding trees to your home can add big value to your space!
Return on Investment
There have been studies that show that landscaping projects tend to bring a higher return on investment than interior projects. Take a good kitchen or bathroom remodeling and you’re looking at getting up to 125% of your investment back, but a landscaping project can net you over 200%! Adding some trees to your yard may just be the return on investment you need to really sell your home.
Trees can add a unique dynamic to your landscape. Work with a professional arborist to help you identify some of the tree species that home buyers in your area are looking for. You can work together to design a beautiful landscape whose color pops with trees and shrubs.
Depending on where trees are planted, they can actually be used to save money on energy bills. Their shade can reduce cooling costs during these hot summer months by as much as 50%! Not to mention, trees that are planted on the northern and northwestern sides of your home can offer a wall against cold winter winds, reducing your winter heating costs.
Thinking Long Term
Watching and caring for a tree while it grows to maturity can be a difficult and long term task, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a reward in doing so. Mature trees can add thousands of dollars of value to your home. If you’re planning for the future and want to eventually sell your home, planting a tree now may be the best way to do it.
