Denver Homes: Low-Maintenance or Lush Landscaping?            

 Have you ever driven by fantastic-looking homes one week, only to notice that they have lost their appeal only a few weeks later? Chances are such a nosedive in curb appeal could be due to an unrealistic approach to front yard landscaping. Especially as
Centennial or Parker  homes approach fall weather changes, and even more notably for Denver  homes that are about to be put on the market, reality (instead of fantasy) should rule when landscape design changes are being decided.

The key is maintenance. Taking care of lush landscaping is a time-consuming activity, so if you are not a garden hobbyist dedicated to the mowing, fertilizing, spraying, pruning, and weeding that elaborate greenscapes require, your choices are to be willing to pay a pro to keep on top of it all, or…actually, that’s your only choice!

Yesterday’s impressive front yard can turn ragged in days if it is neglected. Whether you’re a busy professional or overscheduled soccer mom, homes for sale require constant attention to the front yard landscaping. That curb appeal either invites a call to your Realtor® — or a drive past without a second look.  

That same reality factor that may prompt a decision to install a modest, less-expansive lawn and plantings can affect the number of potential buyers. That’s especially true if your target market weighs heavily with retirees, busy professionals, active families, or folks looking for second homes to use as vacation getaways or income properties. Many of those buyers will gravitate toward Denver homes that won’t cost a lot of money to re-landscape to lower maintenance requirements.


Centennial  and  Parker
   homes with easy-maintenance yards that still present a natural feel can be big winners in today’s market. Along the same lines of less is more, having gnomes, deer or other ornaments on your lawn is generally a turnoff. You can add to that list too much “stuff” in the backyard.

If you’re planning to list your home for sale in Centennial  and  Parker  this fall, it’s time to do some serious planning. I offer pre-marketing consultations to help prepare Denver  homes for the market. Call me today to schedule yours!
