Creating An Inviting Yard

I have always been one of those people who loves to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for others, which is why I started looking at landscaping design in the first place. It was incredible to me to see how much of a difference I was able to make by adding a few new plants, and after that first project, I wanted to help other people. I started volunteering to help friends and neighbors do their landscaping, and after a few months, I had developed quite a following. This blog is all about creating a warm, inviting yard through smart landscaping and an eye for detail.

3 Tips For Selling Your Home Quickly

by Addison Washington

Have you been thinking about selling your home and relocating to one that is more suited to the needs of your family? Do you want to avoid the house being up for sale for months before you can find a suitable buyer? In order to sell your home as quickly as possible, it's best to enlist the help of a real estate agent to handle the actual sale. But before you ever look for an agent to hire, there are some things that you can do to enhance the desirability of your home, helping it to sell faster. Some things to consider doing include:

Update landscaping: Aside from mowing the lawn on a regular basis, landscaping is often one of the first chores to be ignored in a home. Unfortunately, the exterior of your home is also going to be the first thing that potential buyers notice when they come to look. If you haven't got the time to do anything yourself, hire a local landscaping service to trim hedges, trees, and to keep any flower beds looking neat and tidy. An experienced landscaping service can even make your home look more attractive during the winter months when few things, if anything, are actually growing.

Clean the carpets: Dirty carpets are another aspect of your home that may be noticed immediately by potential buyers. Although you can try to get the carpets clean yourself, it may be easier and less expensive in the long run to hire a professional cleaning service to handle this task for you. Similar to hiring a landscaping service for the outside of your home, a cleaning service for the inside will know best how to handle any issues that may exist. Although completely replacing the carpet would be the best way to completely get rid of the years of stains and dirt, a professional cleaning is going to be the next best thing.

Declutter: Few people have the exact same taste in decorations and furniture. Although you may adore the way your home is set up now, the odds are low that any buyers who tour your home are going to feel the same way about your beloved knick-knacks and antique or vintage furniture. Start taking down your family pictures, your collections of souvenirs, and packing up other personal items. Removing these things will help possible buyers to better imagine their own things in these spaces. Rent a small to medium-sized storage unit nearby to keep all of your wanted items in so that you can decorate with them once again after you move.
