Increase Property value

 

Do you consider landscaping a long-term investment? If not, you ought to. According to the Appraisal Institute good landscaping can not only increase a home’s value, but may also help sell a property much more quickly.

Here is what proper landscaping can do for your home:

  • Increase curb appeal and entice buyers to check out the inside of your home.
  • Help your house stand out among other homes in your neighborhood.
  • Add more functionality to your backyard, which means fewer renovations for buyers to make.
  • Become a selling point: low-maintenance, functional landscaping is highly desirable.

Keep it Simple

Are you someone who enjoys arranging plants in elaborate installations? Unfortunately, potential home buyers might get overwhelmed by all the flora diversity in your garden when it comes time to sell.

If you are taking a minimalistic approach to landscaping, you might want to add a few shrubs here and there to fill some space and make it seem less empty. A good balance is having a variety of plants that will please the eye any time of the year. For example, evergreens make winter look more colorful, and tulip magnolias and cherry trees create quite a spectacle in spring.

1) Trim it down - eliminate all the obstructions created by plants, such as overgrown bushes blocking the windows or tree roots disrupting paved passages. Pay special attention to large, old trees that may present a hazard during a storm – some of them may need to be inspected by an arborist.

2) Replace any dying plants and trees with new ones. Next, keep all the shrubbery and trees well trimmed. Sound like a lot of work? This leads us to the next point.

3)  Hire a Landscape Design Professional/Certified Arborist. It’s a wise decision, especially if you’ve been ignoring landscape maintenance and tree care for a while. A landscape professional will help you determine how to revive your poorly maintained yard and trees and which landscape changes will yield the largest return on investment.

If you don’t know what “perennial” means or what kind of soil you have in your yard, better call a landscape design professional. The American Society of Landscape Architects – ASLA, the Association of Professional Landscape Designers – APLD and the International Society of Arboriculture - ISA are great places to find credible professionals.

4)  Landscaping is More Than a Nice Lawn. Planting shrubs and flower beds here and there might sound like an easy solution, but all you are doing is creating chaos in your yard. All landscaping elements must be coordinated and work well together if you are looking to wow future house hunters. Here are some of the things you might want to include in your landscaping master plan:

  • Functional and decorative landscape lighting
  • Outdoor entertainment areas such as patios, fireplaces, fire pits or outdoor kitchens
  • Convenient passages between the key outdoor areas
  • Solutions for shade and privacy
  • Attractive driveway, patio and entrances

5)  Start Today. Even if you don’t plan on selling your home for another five or 10 years, now is a good time to lay the foundation for a great landscape design that will win over your future home-buyers. This way, you won’t have to invest a lot at once – you can stretch renovations over the years. This is especially useful if you want to make expensive home additions, such as a sun-room or a terrace to make a smooth transition between the indoors and the outdoors.

Another benefit of starting now is that your plants will have time to grow. Potential buyers can tell whether the landscape has just gone through a major overhaul or has been cared for over the years. The fact that you put in thought and effort to turn your yard into a beautiful outdoor entertainment space indicates that you most likely took good care of the house as well – something any home-buyer would appreciate and pay for.

TREES INCREASE PROPERTY VALUE

Source: Blue Green Urban https://www.greenblue.com/na/how-trees-increase-property-values/

Research has proven that trees provide significant benefits for developers and property owners by increasing property values and selling prices. One US study even determined that large street trees were the single most important indicator of attractiveness in a community (Coder, 1996).

Trees sunny fall foliage lawn drive.jpg

These advantages are a result of several inter-related benefits that trees convey, including physical and visual amenity, shade provision, air quality improvement, noise abatement, and increased biodiversity.

A series of international third-party studies have shown that trees increase property prices by between 5% to 18% (CABE Space, 2005 and Morales et al, 1983). In one high-income area, this equated to between $30,000 and $120,000 USD on a $675,000 residence.

A Philadelphia-based study demonstrated that properties close to new tree plantings increased in price by about 10% (Wachter and Gillen, 2006). That meant an additional $30,000 USD for the average house price. The potential value increase is dependent on numerous factors including the local socio-economic situation, area characteristics, density and type of developments, climate conditions, etc.

Significant work has been undertaken throughout the US to demonstrate the specific value that trees offer nearby properties. While the findings vary, they consistently identify that trees have a positive effect on house prices under almost any circumstances. In the UK, key policies regularly refer to the value trees have on property prices.

Careful development planning can retain existing mature trees, inferring an immediate premium on the property prices in addition to the increase brought by newly planted trees. These higher property values reveal the importance that people put on trees.

Green infrastructure has also been proven to increase land values. Research conducted in Frankfurt and Berlin, Germany and Malmö, Sweden identified a significant correlation between land prices and distance, quality, and density of green space (Luther and Gruehn, 2001). Large specie trees are an important part of how people perceive the quality of green space. As part of the study, it was recognized that a high number of street trees resulted in a 17% increase in land values.

Case Study – Quebec City, Canada

Between 1993 and 2001, an opinion poll about urban trees was undertaken with 640 home buyers. The results indicated that the effect of mature trees on house prices is highly related to family composition. It further stated that the appreciation of treed areas and their perceived benefits varied according to socio-economic status of the neighborhood. However, mature trees in high income areas can raise property prices by 10 to 15% (Theriault et al, 2001).

Autumn Beech Allee Sunset Couple Walking.jpg

There are many ways through which designers and developers can ensure that their projects include healthy mature trees that will flourish and provide this kind of value increasing benefit to the properties they work on. Properly specifying new urban tree plantings that are planted to succeed from day one greatly increases urban tree success rates.
