Surveys suggests that about half of potential buyers of property would try to negotiate a price reduction if it looked unappealing from the street. Those surveyed said that the decision whether they liked a property from the outside was largely dependent on a neat and tidy house. Gardens and lawns add value, which can see the price increase as much as 10 percent.
Street appeal is real-estate terminology for the appeal a property presents to potential buyers when viewed from the street. According to a number of surveys carried out over the past 12 months, there is a definite correlation between the first-impressions and the value of a property as perceived by a prospective buyer.
The survey findings released earlier this year from the comparison website finder.com.au, suggests that nine-out-of-10 Australians would offer below a property’s asking price if the exterior of the property was not appealing – with house hunters offering 17 percent on-average below the asking price, if the prospect was dissatisfied with the property from the outside.
The survey of some two-thousand homeowners found that people typically take just 10 seconds to decide whether they liked a property from its external appearance. When compared to complicated indoor renovations, laying down a lush, neat lawn is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to increase your property’s desirability for prospective buyers.
For potential buyers, it’s all about falling in love with a new home. Seemingly simple factors, such as having a green lawn will go a long way in helping them make a connection with your property. Additionally, a green lawn can provide a welcoming space for family activities or entertainment, allowing prospective buyers to better visualise your property as their ‘future home’.
