Survey reveals that homebuyers are willing to pay more for a lawn

22 May 2012 Brian Brady 0 Comment

If you want to improve the value of your Everton Park property, then it may help if you have a luscious, green front lawn.

A recent study conducted by Turf Australia found that Queenslanders were willing to pay up to 12 percent more for a property that has a lawn, over one that doesn’t. For Australia as a whole, it was found that buyers on average are willing to pay 18 percent more for a lawn.

While it’s important to keep in mind that the survey was carried out by a company that could be slightly bias; there’s no denying that a lawn and a garden can help add to the appeal and the value of a property.

For sellers this means that there is an opportunity to help add to the value of a home by making sure that the outside makes a good impression.

A lot of sellers tend to pay a lot of attention to the way the inside of a home looks (which is still very important) but it’s important to keep in mind that the first thing potential buyers see is the outside of a property, and this is what can draw them in to check out the inside of the property in the first place.

A lot of buyers do drive-bys of a home before enquiring about the property, so make sure your lawn and your garden looks neat, tidy and attractive to buyers. If you’re looking for some tips on improving the look of your garden and lawn then head over to a past blog with tips on improving your curb appeal.
