Preparing Your Charlotte Home for Sale in the Spring?   Don’t Forget the Great Outdoors!

If you’re thinking of listing and having your Charlotte home marketed for the spring, what better time to prepare than NOW?  Yes, it’s a great season for doing a little attic and garage cleaning but, don’t forget the great outdoors!

During the past couple of years, we have seen a tremendous increase in buyer interest with regards to backyard hardscaping.  This includes patios, fire pits and fireplaces, pools, spas, fountains, ponds, arbors and awnings.  Yes, awnings have made a comeback–especially the remote controlled awnings that are really quite classy!

If you have backyard hardscaping, be sure that it is ‘highlighted’ with use of beautiful landscaping.  Show it off surrounded by Leyland cypresses, Knock-Out roses or other evergreen or flowering plants and shrubs.  Now is the time to trim and clean-up these feature areas; trimming those roses now will help provide a massive, budding presentation in the spring, just as your Charlotte home is listed.

Backyard Hardscaping for Charlotte Home Sellers

Here in Charlotte, we’ve seen a huge shift in interest in these outdoor spaces and sellers are realizing 90-100% return on their investment for these features.  If your backyard needs a little pizzaz, consider adding a bit of hardscaping to achieve that.
