Nothing makes a good impression on a potential home buyer quite like having a warm feeling when seeing a property for the first time. It’s called ‘curb appeal’ for a reason. Before they walk through the front door, most buyers will form some sort of opinion about a home based on how it appears from the street. Maintaining your property not only enhances the look of your Orangeville Home and the neighbourhood, it adds value and increases your chances of a quick sale if you should decide to move.
General home maintenance is an ongoing and long-term process that is an integral part of home ownership and it generally falls into two categories – building maintenance and landscaping.
With landscaping there’s a lot more to think about than just cutting the grass and deciding where to plant your new shrub. Proper landscaping offers the obvious appeal of enhancing the look of your home while providing other significant advantages depending on the size of your property. In addition to selecting trees, shrubs and flowers that complement the property, consider the environmental factors well. You can consult a professional landscaper to learn how to:
Take advantage of natural landforms to create windbreaks
Plant trees to provide shaded areas in the summer
Plant vines or shrubs to create a windbreak directly against an exterior wall
Keeping your Orangeville home looking its best will provide you with pride of ownership and if the time comes that you decide it’s time for a move, your ‘curb appeal’ will increase your chances of a quick sale.
