Curb Appeal - Meet James the Landscaper! 

 

Curb appeal - which Michelle Gordon likes to call 1st impressions.  MIke and Michele Gordon have only bought “fixer-uppers”. The 1st thing they would fix up, is the curb appeal, the lawn. It’s so important.  Mike always did it first as he knew how many people it affected in the neighborhood. 

Whether you are selling or not, it affects the neighbor who is selling. New buyer’s check out the neighborhood before putting in an offer, this means drive bys of the area. 

If you are selling a home - making sure your curb appeal is top notch is very important. Many Times a prospective homebuyer will drive by the home before deciding to schedule an appointment - or we have an appointment with an agent to see the home and will get a call to cancel “they drove by and changed their mind” is the reason for the cancellation. 

Adding interesting detail like water feature is a way to make your home stand out from the competition and remembered. 

 

MIchelle says there are 2 values - appraisal value and desirability value. In this market where many are willing to pay over list price for a home, desirability value is essential. 

 

Meet James Whittaker with Landscape Design/Sales at R & A Water Features and Landscaping and he and Michelle talk landscaping 

 

Remember it's Just what we know but who we know that makes us stand out from all the rest!
