Increasing Home Value
In today’s economy, many people are eager to increase their home value. When looking to buy or sell, landscaping can play a huge role in boosting value. In fact, a Clemson University study found landscaping can result in a more than 100% return on investment. The return on investment, however, is contingent upon the quality of the landscape installation. It’s important to find the right landscape architect and/or contractor that use only high-quality materials and bring the expertise and experience necessary to complete a quality project.
“Homeowners wanting to increase the value of their property will do well to consider the cost-effective return potential of quality landscaping, and to safeguard their investments by hiring licensed, professional landscape contractors to perform the work.” (Clemson University)
“95% of the appraisers responding to the survey believed that landscaping increases the value of a residential real estate, while 99% of them said it enhanced the curb appeal and sales appeal of residential real estate.” ( Society of Real Estate; Appraisers Survey)
“By spending 5% of the value of your home on the installation of a quality, low-maintenance landscape, you could boost the resale of value by 15%, earning back 150% or more of your landscape investment.” (Smart Money Magazine)
