In Landscape

When it comes to our homes value, we all want the biggest bang for our buck, so where is our money best spent? What upgrade or addition to your home will increase it’s value the most, and truly give you the biggest bang for your buck? You may be thinking kitchens and bathrooms, but studies suggest otherwise. An article regarding how to boost your property value from the herald tribune, states the following:

“Forget wiring your new home for audio, video and data. Pass on the upgraded kitchen cabinets. Say no to thicker carpets. If you really want to add lasting value, opt for landscaping. Done correctly, the addition of trees, shrubs, plants, walks, lighting and patios can increase the value of your property by 20 percent — almost instantaneously. Real-estate professionals have always known this. A study by Arbor National Mortgage found that 84 percent of the agents questioned believe a house on a treed lot would fetch at least that much more than one on a lot without trees. Another survey, this one in Greenville, S.C., showed houses with “excellent” landscaping could expect to sell for 4 percent to 5 percent more than homes with just “good” landscaping. But those with only “fair” landscaping would sell for 8 percent to 10 percent below “good” houses.”

If you’re ready to boost the value of your home and enjoy a beautifully landscaped setting while you’re at it, give OrganicScapes, INC. a call. We specialize in working with our clients to create a beautiful outdoor space that can be enjoyed for years to come.
