How landscaping can increase property values | Southbury, CT

The landscape professionals at Elite Property and Fence recently met with a homeowner in Southbury, Connecticut who was interested on improving the appearance of their landscape in order to facilitate the sale of their property, which was going on the market within the next few months. The homeowners lawn had deteriorated, they had shrubs that were overgrown, there were cracks in the stone walkway, and the structure of their deck was falling apart. The condition of their lawn and hardscapes not only made the house seem unkept and dated, it also masked the actual beauty of the property and home.

It is widely known that hiring a landscape design contractor to improve your landscape will not only improve the appearance of your property, but it will also improve the worth of your property and make it easier to sell. Elite Property and Fence can install a professionally designed and maintained landscape utilizing high quality components and plant material that will beautify your property increase the value of your home or commercial property. We have included a few landscape ideas below that we are capable of providing for your property.

  • Tree Installations: Beyond adding privacy and beauty to a property, the addition of trees to a landscape will provide an economic benefit by lowering the energy expenditures for your home or business by adding a shield from the direct sunlight. This additional shade will reduce cooling costs in the summer. It can also provide protection against the harsh elements of the winter season. Studies have indicated that fully mature and manicured trees will greatly improve property values and appeal to prospective buyers.
  • Outdoor Lighting: When strategically designed and installed, outdoor lighting can significantly increase the overall market appeal of your home or business. Elite Property and Fence have experience in installing outdoor lighting features for walkways, swimming pools, ponds, and lighting that will highlight the structural beauty of your home. An additional benefit of including outdoor lighting features within your landscape is that it will help to deter any potential intruders on your property and give you and your family an added sense of security. This can also help to reduce your insurance payments with some insurance companies.
  • Wood, Vinyl, Aluminum and Chain Link Fencing: Adding fence to your property has many obvious benefits such as providing privacy, keeping your pets and children safely confined, and preventing intruders from entering your property. Most potential buyers are interested in a property that offers a sense of privacy and security, so a fence will be viewed as a major positive. If a prospective buyer is interested in installing a pool, the proper fence will satisfy any safety and legal standards and save them money.

The landscaping of your property will be the first thing that a prospective buyer will notice when they arrive on your location, so you will want to make a strong first impression if you are looking to maximize the value of your home and get it sold as soon as possible.
