Flowers for Instant Curb Appeal . . . .
Experts agree that curb appeal is one of the most important aspects to consider when selling a home. It's appearance from the street very often determines whether potential buyers are interested in finding out more or seeing the inside.
Strategically placed flowers and small shrubs are one of the easiest and least expensive ways to make the front of your house look inviting and instantly increase its curb appeal. A home without any real landscaping at all, can be transformed by effectively placed foliage. This is true no matter what the season. I once had a client ask me "Who has flowers in their yard in the winter?" I replied with a big smile "People with their houses for sale"
You should choose colorful flowers that will be in bloom during the time you're selling your home. Planting flowers in planter boxes and pots is easier than planting them in the ground and lets you more easily place them where they can have the most visual impact.
You don't need to have a green thumb, or spend a lot of money to get great results either.
Visit your local home improvement center or nursery and they will be happy to advise you of the best flowers and plants for your purpose. You can put together several very nice planter boxes and pots of flowers for a fairly modest investment.
One of the nice things about using flowers in this way is that you'll see the results immediately. And so will buyers visiting your home!
