I wish we could do this with rental properties. property owners are not willing to cover the cost.

Comment on Judge the Landscape Beyond Just Curb Appeal by Tammy

Please be more careful with the way you present information in these blogs.

When you state in a post that landscaping increases the homes value by as much as 17%, you set up the expectation by homeowners that improving landscaping will increase the APPRAISED value of their home.

Let me say, as a certified residential appraiser, this expectation is not realistic. As we all know, EVERYTHING is market specific. What adds value in one market can have NO benefit in another.

As for landscaping, even though it can be very expensive, it is not uncommon to not increase the appraised value of a home. It can add appeal and marketability, which may cause your home to sell in a shorter time than a comparable property, or may possibly affect the list to sell ratio (in other words, help it sell closer to the listed price) with all other features equal between your home and a similar competing home.

I believe, and correct me if I’m wrong, this concept is what you were trying to convey in the post ; that it can help your home to sell closer to listed price thereby increasing the seller’s net overall.

Comment on My Favorite Staging Accessory: Greenery by Karen Whitby

Having staged 70 of our real estate team’s listings last year, I totally agree with you, Melissa.

Bad “faux botanicals” which are dusty, bent, faded and have an odor give greenery a bad rap but the quality ones really enhance a seller’s home. Many homeowners do not have live plants (oh, what they are missing!) so quality fauxs really add life and ground a room, especially with all the “hard” materials we find in today’s homes i.e. hardwood floors, granite, black furniture, leather. Greenery softens and brings life.

Comment on My Favorite Staging Accessory: Rugs by Mary O'Neil Homes

I think staging is incredibly important, especially these days when most potential buyers are browsing online and determining whether or not to schedule an appointment based on how nice a home looks. But I’m TERRIBLE with rugs! I like the concept, but I just don’t have enough of an artistic eye to determine when to use them or not use them, and honestly I probably would have staged something like the first photo. Thanks for the great tips!
