The Drought is not an “excuse” to stop maintaining your landscaping.
If you have followed this blog for a while or if you have just found it, you’ll know from my past posts that I think the one thing many investors and even home owners over look or put in a lower priority is the landscaping… especially the front yard.
Many people will make a snap decision on the spot whether or not to buy or rent or even get out of the car when they first pull up. First impressions are important don’t you think…?
Case in point is a Duplex that just came on the market a day or so ago located at 7937-7939 Tangors Way, Citrus Heights, Ca. I had to just laugh when I saw the price because I know the area and specialize in Duplexes.
In addition, the fact that there are no “front yard” pictures provided to the Multiple Listing Service kind of gave me a clue there’d be a “surprise” for me. I drove by to take a peek and I’ve got a video here below for you.
The agent describes this property with words such as “well maintained” and “in great shape”.
Take look at the video tell me what you think…?
It doesn’t take much really to make a property stand out.
What about planting some trees and shrubs…?
This investor is not the only one. I wrote about a Duplex in Roseville where the investor did the same thing… which was nothing to the landscaping in front or the back yard, but promoted the “large back yard” as a good thing.
I’d appreciate your feedback… Let me know what you think… Am I being too critical…?
In the mean time…?
Make it a Great Day…!
