Spring has long been associated with the property market. Even though online property portals have made it easier for buyers to view homes all year round, spring is still the busiest time of year for property transactions. Spring is also the time of year most commonly associated with cleaning, and it is the time when you can finally get into your garden after winter.
It is no surprise to learn all these elements can be combined. If you are looking to sell your home, it is worthwhile creating a positive impression with your garden. We are pleased to say we have helped many local vendors connect with buyers, and we have spring garden tips for selling your home.
Tidy up and tame unruly shrubs and branches
If your garden looks messy, people will think you, and your home, are messy. Before they even step foot inside your property, there is a good chance they will form a negative impression of what is on offer. You can avoid this by making sure your garden is tidy and in an ordered condition.
Trim trees and bushes, mow the lawn, clip hedges and make sure all rubbish and debris are removed from the garden. This isn’t always an easy task. If there is a lot of wind, your garden can feel the after-effects, but it is vital to ensure your garden is as appealing as possible.
Add some seasonal colour and energy to your garden
With flowers starting to bloom in spring, you want to take advantage of this. Add seasonal plants that will add colour and vitality to your garden area. Flowers you should consider planting for spring include tulips, lilacs and hyacinths, amongst others. Of course, if you don’t have a lot of skill, patience or time in the garden, don’t worry. There is nothing to say you cannot buy these flowers and plant them directly. The most important thing is to create a great-looking garden, not showcase your gardening credentials.
If you can achieve both of these outcomes, then great, but if not, the most important thing to focus on is ensuring your garden looks fantastic.
Create a space for outside socialising
How you use your space is essential. You don’t want to have too many items or objects taking up room in your garden. However, if you can create an area where people can sit and socialise, you will go a long way to making potential buyers remember your home.
A simple arrangement of a table and chairs on a decking area can create a positive impression, as well as creating a space that increases the attractiveness of your garden.
There are many ways you can improve the appearance of your garden, but focus on the basics. Creating space and making sure the environment is tidy is an excellent way to attract buyers.
