Sellers: take pictures of your yard now!

Many sellers have beautiful flower gardens and flowering trees but when they list their homes for sale in the fall and winter, these benefits are invisible.

The exterior of the home may look average or even boring during those months because nothing is in bloom.   Too many sellers tell me that “the house looks amazing in the spring time when the tulips and daffodils are up and when the dogwood tree is in bloom” but there is no way to share this information with prospective buyers.

Take pictures NOW – while your bulb plants are in full glory; while your flowering trees (e.g., cherry, bradford pear, and dogwood trees) are in bloom.  Save these to a file and give these pictures to your real estate agent to incorporate into your listing pictures so you can show how magnificent it is during the non-winter months.
