Does Landscaping Increase Property Value?

If you are trying to sell your property, you’ll know that it is never smooth sailing. As well as all of the form filling and legalities that come with selling up, there are plenty of practical tactics you could employ to land a buyer as quickly as possible and for the best price.

To increase the value and desirability of your property, it will take more than buying some new cushions and having a quick clean around the living room. According to research carried out by Post Office Money, homeowners who invest in landscaping their garden could see their property value increase significantly and garden landscaping is a sound investment.

Based on the mid-range asking price of a three-bed semi-detached home in the UK, the research found that properties with garden landscaping added the most value to a home. This is compared to other popular home improvements such as an extension, new kitchen and even a driveway.

Research also found that along with being the highest property value increase, garden landscaping is one of the least costly. This makes garden landscaping the most cost-effective forms of home improvement when selling. The least effect home improvement being a basement conversion, which is estimated at costing £90,000 with a value increase of 17%.

With property prices rising and falling, people are looking for different ways to maximise their market value. Chrysanthy Pispinis From Post Office Money says, “Making the right changes to your home can increase its market value significantly, with garden landscaping coming out on top for the most value added.”

When you’re selling your property, it’s important to allow your potential buyers to picture themselves making a home in the space. This thought should be carried out into the garden.
