You have a home in the Smokies and you are wanting to sell it; right?  Whether it be a luxury home or a vacation home, you want your property to sell.

With the beautiful views in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg setting the stage for you, what do think the first thing people are going to look at when they pull up to your house?

If you guessed yard, then you would be correct.

Many people that buy a home make a judgement about the place even before they get out of the car.  The appearance you choose to give the outside of the house is going to affect how they look at the inside of the house.  I have been to many nice homes that were absolutely wonderful on the inside, but the house was not well taken care of on the outside.

We at Cardinal Custom Lawn are for you and want you to sell your home!  Our team can bring your home for sale up to date and have it looking showroom ready!

To get you started, here are 3 landscaping tips you can use to help prepare:

1. Get Rid Of The Trash

Nothing says “This home is for you” more than a yard full of paper, tools, broken toys and lawn equipment.  Get a trash bag and get cleaning!  If you have to think if it belongs there, it probably doesn’t and needs to go.  No one wants to feel like they are walking through a dump to get to the house they may potentially buy.  Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg do a great job keeping the trash away from tourists, so why wouldn’t you do the same for the next potential homebuyer?  Your home for sale needs to look as good as the town that it is a part of!

2.  Touch Up The Mulch

Now that you’ve removed all of the trash, it is time to give your yard a fresh look.  The quickest and cheapest way is to spread a little mulch around your trees and shrubs.  Mulch enhances the constrast of your greens and helps make them stand out.

3.  Plant A Few Flowers

Flowers add instant color to the look of your home and are cheap and easy to plant.  Your home for sale is going to stand out if you plant a few carefully placed flowers that draw attention to your home’s best features.

These are three quick and easy solutions you can do to maximize the curb appeal to your home.  No one wants to be left with a home that doesn’t sale, so be proactive and make sure that your home looks its best.  If you are needing a more customized solution, Cardinal Custom Lawn is ready!  Let us remove that stress from you and take your curb appeal to the next level!
