Landscaping and Views Affect Values of Duplexes Too…!

People Will Pay More Rent & That Affects Your Value.

If you’re thinking of buying a Sacramento Duplex, I’ve always told investors to not overlook landscaping and “curb appeal” as an important part of your investment.  In addition back yard landscaping with patios, shade trees and privacy enhance your property and make it stand out when you have a rental competing with others and when you decide to sell.

We have such great weather in which a nice back yard adds an extension of the living area because your tenants will hang out there.

In other words a nicely landscaped property front and back will bring you more income and increase the value of your investment.   This is true for Single Family Homes, Duplexes and even apartment complexes.
