Houses go on the market at various times of
the year for various reasons. If you are listing
in the winter or fall months, the chances are
the landscaping and curb appeal is not showing
at its best.

Landscaping in the front and back yards are
selling features. Perennials, shrubs, trees, decks,
patios, pools etc. are all part of the landscaping.
You want to entice prospective buyers; you want
them to see all these features when they look their best.

Sometimes, this is not possible, the alternative
would be, if you are planning to put your house
up for sale next year, plan ahead. If your house
is not going to be on the market when the landscaping
is at its best, why not take some pictures when it is.
The listing salesperson will have these pictures to
show the prospective buyers in the photo gallery and
the presentation folder.

A deck covered in snow, is not as inviting as a
picture of the deck in the summer sun, with the patio
furniture laid out, accessorized tastefully. A covered
pool is not as enticing and appealing as it is when
you see the sun reflecting off the water and pool
accessories and landscaping in the back ground.

Take a few minutes and plan ahead and take some
pictures of all the selling features of your house
when they are the most appealing and attractive.

Home Staging includes the outside of your house.
