Popular Minneapolis landscaping firm, Lee’s Landscaping and Design, provides information on the benefits homeowners experience through a minimal investment in professional landscape design, including increased home values and quicker resale time.
Online PR News – 28-March-2012 – – MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Premier Minneapolis landscaping firm, Lee's Landscaping and Design, Inc., recently announced that professional landscape design could help homeowners sell their properties faster, while also increasing home values. According to the National Gardening Association, nearly 99 percent of all real estate appraisers agree that professional landscaping enhances the overall sales appeal of homes.
Homeowners are often surprised to learn that an investment in professional landscaping services can yield high returns. Compared to other home improvement projects, such as kitchen remodeling which yields between 75 and 125 percent recovery rate, and swimming pool additions, which bring in only 20 to 50 percent recovery rates, professional landscaping often offers a recovery value between 100 and 200 percent if the design is attractive and complementary of the natural surroundings.
"In current economic times, many homeowners feel they cannot afford to hire professional landscaping designers. However, professional landscaping can dramatically increase overall home values and make reselling much quicker, even in the toughest real estate markets," says Lee Otto, owner of Lee's Landscaping and Design (http://www.leeslandscapes.com).
Because buyers often make split second decisions whether or not to tour a home based solely on its exterior appearance, landscaping plays an important role in attractively featuring the home and its surrounding property. According to the Associated Landscape Contractors of America, professionally designed landscaping can increase resale values by as much as 14 percent and speed up the average selling time by nearly six weeks.
The return on investment of professional landscaping is often dependent upon the starting value of the home, as well as the type of landscape design selected. For example, if a homeowner of a $200,000 property spends $5,000 on a professionally installed paver or stone patio, the home value could be increased by as much as $20,000 to $24,000. Additionally, a home initially valued at $400,000 could increase its value by as much as $40,000 through the addition of a professionally installed exterior environment.
"At Lee's Landscaping and Design, we work closely with our clients to determine the most beneficial landscaping designs to meet each of their specific needs. Whether a client is looking to increase curb appeal to sell their home quickly, or if they simply want to build higher long term resale value, our professional team develops creative and appealing landscape designs to achieve the most favorable results," says Otto.
