Insights from Konjoian’s Greenhouses

When it comes to increasing the value of your home, few improvements yield as substantial and enduring a return as professional landscaping. At Konjoian’s Greenhouses in Andover, MA, we understand the profound impact that thoughtfully designed outdoor spaces can have, not only on the aesthetic appeal of your property but also on its market value.

The Long-lasting Investment of Landscaping

Unlike interior decor trends that fade or mechanical systems that wear, a well-maintained landscape matures and flourishes over time. It’s a unique home improvement strategy that not only boosts your property’s value instantly but also grows it as years pass. This natural enhancement offers an enduring appeal that few other home improvements can match.

First Impressions Count

The initial view of your home is crucial. Curb appeal and meticulous landscaping are the first indicators to potential buyers of the overall care invested in the property. It’s not just about adding plants; it’s about creating an inviting first impression that resonates with buyers from the first glance.

Understanding the Value Addition

A well-landscaped home can have a significant price advantage, ranging from 5.5% to 12.7% over homes with no landscaping. For a $300,000 home, this translates to an additional $16,500 to $38,100 in value. But it’s not just about planting a few flowers or shrubs. Buyers are looking for a polished, manicured design with mature plantings and a diverse array of flora.

Setting a Landscaping Budget

How much should you invest in landscaping? A good rule of thumb is dedicating about 5% of your home’s value to create a low-maintenance yet quality landscape. This investment can increase your home’s resale value by as much as 15%, yielding a return of 150% or more on your landscaping spend.

Real estate experts and homebuyers alike recognize the immense value of curb appeal. A home that looks inviting and well-cared-for on the outside often generates more excitement and interest than one that appears neglected.

The 10% Rule and Avoiding Common Mistakes

Erik Shorb, co-owner of American Plant, suggests investing 10% of your home’s value in landscaping as a general guideline. However, it’s crucial to approach this investment with a plan. A piecemeal approach can lead to a disorganized and haphazard look. Implementing a professional landscape design ensures a cohesive and attractive outcome while adhering to a pre-determined budget.

The Professional Edge

A professionally landscaped property not only enhances curb appeal but also significantly boosts your home’s market value. Experts like Joan Honeyman of Honeyman Landscape Architecture in Washington, D.C., suggest that good landscape design can add up to 20% to your home’s value. This is comparable to the returns on major interior renovations like a new kitchen or bath.

In conclusion, whether you’re considering selling your home or simply looking to enhance its beauty and value, professional landscaping offers a reliable and substantial return on investment. At Konjoian’s Greenhouses, we’re committed to helping you achieve a beautifully landscaped property that not only captivates onlookers but also contributes significantly to your home’s worth. Remember, in the realm of real estate, the beauty on the outside is just as important as the comfort on the inside.
