Updating the landscape around your home can be a great way to improve the quality and value of your home. Improved landscaping can also drive up your curb appeal and make you stand out among other neighbours. Through the clever use of house and land packages, you can move right into a home that has already been built with a curb appeal in mind. While quality homes can take longer to build than buying a pre-existing home, the benefits offset any time spent waiting.
Whether you have just moved into a new home or have recently chosen from one of many home designs, Queensland is a great place to start working on your landscaping to improve the value of your home.
1. Change the Colours of Your Plants
Switching out the types of plants you have or the colours throughout the yard can be a great way to freshen up your landscape and infuse a layer of vibrancy to the exterior of your home. Familiar neighbours will instantly realise that something is different about your home when they drive by, walk by or visit.
2. Paint the Exterior of Your Home
Like changing the colours of your plants, updating the colour of your home exterior walls will help to freshen up your home. Not only will it appear crisp and brand new, but repainting your home can have benefits in protecting your home, especially if the existing coat of paint has aged.
3. Fix Up the Fencing
After a long enough time, fencing, and other landscaping decorations can become weathered, damaged, or completely broken. Take some time to inspect fixtures throughout your yard and see what needs fixing or replacing. Making your fencing look brand new can help to make the rest of your home look well taken care of.
4. Utilise Solar Panels
If you want to go green, using solar panels to generate some (or all) of your electricity in the home can be a great way to save money. When you decide to sell your home, having technology installed on the home that promotes a green lifestyle can be a great way to increase the value of your home to prospective buyers.
5. Update the Front Entrance
No place in the home gets seen the most by guests like the front entrance. How dated does your door look? Does the entrance need touching up? Spend some time inspecting the quality of your home entrance and see if it’s worth updating. It will increase both the curb appeal and future value of the home.
The ultimate solution to find the highest value home is to create the home of your dreams. Homes that have been customised and built with state of the art equipment, techniques and technology are those that have a better chance at attracting buyers when you decide to sell.
