According to landscape economist John Harris, good landscaping can add up to 28% to the overall value of a house, and cut its time on the market by 10% to 15%.
But getting those results takes more than simply weeding and cutting the grass.
Research by Alex X. Niemiera, a horticulturist at Virginia Tech, makes it clear that there’s more to landscaping than sticking some flowers and a couple shrubs in the ground. The number one thing that buyers are looking for in landscaping is a sophisticated design.
Niemera’s research also found that a well-landscaped home had a significant price advantage over a home with no landscaping. That advantage, on average, ranged from 5.5 percent to 12.7 percent, which translates into an extra $16,500 to $38,100 in value on a $300,000 home.
How would you like an extra $38,100 for your house?
