When selling your home you may not think about your trees, they can often get overlooked or if they are in poor health then they can extract from your property rather than add to it. The established and well-maintained trees on your property can’t just be replaced and so make your property unique and are always factored into homes value by property agents. Let’s look at how your trees can boost your property value.
If you’re looking to move and sell your property or if your home is orderly and well-maintained then it will get the best asking price or valuation. Cluttered and damaged homes sell for less, this is true no matter where you are in the world.
So as some de-cluttering and a new lick of paint will improve your home’s valuation, the same is also true when it comes to gardens and trees, but this can often be overlooked. You should take a look at your garden and trees and consider it from a buyer’s perspective, you may need to cut back, or you may need to plant.
