Garden design tips for selling your home – Adelaide Real Estate Agent vlog #089


A garden plays a key role in the saleability of a home, and it can make a big difference to the final dollar figure in
your pocket. With many homeowners considering selling this spring we thought we’d share some simple and cost-effective ideas which
can add substantial dollars to your final sale price. So grab your gloves and
shovel and get gardening. Hi I’m Marie McWilliam an Adelaide real estate
agent with Harcourts Williams property and in these videos I look at all things
real estate. Outdoor spaces are high on the list for prospective buyers so when
you’re selling your home make your outdoor spaces look the best they can.
Make an entrance. If you’re on a tight budget or timeline, the area of the
garden to concentrate on is the entrance and the garden around it. Instant
street appeal, with a fresh layer of mulch which gives a quick facelift to a
garden with an established garden. Have a clear path to the front door, cutting
back bushes, pressure clean paving or repave all together. Now this creates an
obvious line of sight to the front door and this will make the space feel bigger
and add to the street appeal. Pots, the bigger the better, and get the most
established plants you can find. Pots are a great way of adding color and interest
to a space and you can take them with you. If you want to keep it low
maintenance keeping your garden simple and low-maintenance will add appeal and
cater to all types of gardeners. If possible plant as far ahead of time from
the date your home’s going on the market. Leaving mulching to the last week’s before photos and first inspections. Mulching is a great way to make your existing and new plants pop and if you’re planting new species or doing a redesign of the
garden stick to a minimal plant palette. Go for low-maintenance, fast growing
plants once again if you have existing garden beds fill in the gaps
with one type or species of plant to create continuity and it creates privacy.
A private garden is one thing most buyers are looking for. Screening out
unwanted views or neighbors. Think about adding fence toppers or an advanced tree
or shade sale all low cost ways of creating privacy. Keep it neutral
and functional like the interior of your home. Buyers want to see
themselves living in and enjoying the outdoor spaces. Use natural and modern
tones when paving and painting of fences and exteriors. Have well-thought-out
spaces which have a designated purpose and a seating area or place for
table and chairs showing prospective buyers how usable the space is. We love
our outdoor spaces in Australia so when you’re selling your home don’t neglect
these areas outdoor spaces which are as important as indoor spaces for achieving a great
sale result.
