Back yards may be just as, or more important than front yards!
Always remember, you only have once chance to make a first impression, when it comes to sparking buyer-interest in your home. Some homebuyers will actually drive by without even giving the interior of your home a chance, if the exterior is unappealing. Curb Appeal is an important step towards getting people inside your home.
In many cases, back yards may be just as, or even more important than front yards. More and more, homeowners are enjoying their back yards as an extension of the home. It is important to ensure your back yard is enticing, so homebuyers can imagine themselves entertaining, playing, and relaxing in it. Keep in mind as well, that although projects like replacing windows or roofing can be costly, choosing to do so could very well sway a decision towards buying your home, over one down the street. When there are obvious features that require updating, it can either detract a buyer from putting in an offer, or give them leverage to offer considerably less than what you might be asking. Improvements such as these will be a bonus when homebuyers are comparing the features of your home to another.
