When you place your home on the market, it is just as important to stage your backyard as it is to stage your interior. There are many homeowners with a backyard on their wishlist, and you do not want them to be turned away by an unpleasant space. Use the following tips to stage your backyard for your open house.
Clean the yard | You are going to start by cleaning up the yard. Rake the leaves and remove any fallen branches and twigs. It is also important to clean up after your pets, from their chew bones to their business.
Remove any clutter | In addition to cleaning the yard, you also want to remove the clutter of outdoor items. This includes your above ground pool, sports gear, tools and children’s toys. This way, you can highlight the space of your backyard.
Care for the lawn | It is difficult to highlight your space when it is hidden under tall grass. Now is the time to mow the lawn, so you can show off a clean outdoor space.
Tend To The Garden | If you have a garden in your backyard, you want to start caring for it as soon as your move is set in stone, if you have not been tending to it. Remove any weeds and dead flowers, and plant some potted flowers in the garden as a quick solution.
Take Care of Dead Branches | Do you have a tree in your backyard? You want to take care of the dead branches before your open house. The dead branches are not only unsightly, but they can also be a safety hazard. Trim off the dead branches and remove them from your yard.
Whether your buyer is a parent or garden enthusiast, they are sure to appreciate a well-kept backyard.Annie Spratt
