Most home sellers understand the importance of curb appeal when listing a home. This is particularly true with subdivisions where homes need to stand out from the crowd.
Landscaping is a big part of curb appeal and can have a big impact on price. Researchers at Virginia Tech found that a home with little or no landscaping could produce an additional 5% – 15% by making landscaping improvements.
