Invest in Making A Good Impression with your Home


With all the rain that May brings this month, it is a delightful sight to see the trees blooming and grass turning green. Gardening season is on the horizon and for Mother’s Day thousands of flowers will line up your local shops and grocery stores. Now that beautiful flowers are on everybody’s mind, it’s time to start thinking about landscaping around the house. There’s nothing like a well-maintained garden to improve the value of your home. Buyers are more likely to purchase a home in the spring when gardens are displaying fresh new growth and flowers in bloom.


I love fresh cut flowers in the house, it adds colour and a touch of the outdoor scent inside. As you begin spring cleaning inside your home, you shouldn’t forget about the outside of the house. Having a prim and proper yard is the best way to greet your guests and to make a good first impression. Just like the old cliché expression, you never get a second chance for a first impression is also true when it comes to your home. I believe it’s good practice for everything you do to always put your best foot forward in both your professional and personal life.


The outdoor space of a house is just as important when it comes to increasing a home’s resale value. My advice to homeowners is that it pays to invest on yard maintenance. Good landscaping can actually increase the value of a home by 15-20%. With all the downsizing, people are treating outdoor space more as an outdoor living room, dining room and kitchen. Outdoor patio furniture and fire tables add an extra layer to your landscaping that buyers notice. Since your garden is the very first thing people see when they come to your house you want to give a good impression at all times.
