The Great Outdoors has a Big Impact on your Property's ValueI love it when the clocks go forward. The days are longer, the evenings much lighter and people are starting to venture outside again. Put simply most people love being in the fresh air when the better weather arrives. We are also lucky in Forest Hill because we have some great parks on our doorstep. My family's personal favourite is Mayow Park.When spring takes centre stage, people tend to feel happier and serious buyers get out and about in droves.However, some people who prepare their home for sale fail to ensure their garden looks as attractive as possible. I have many prospective buyers who give me their property wish list. A garden is very often on those lists. In some cases people are even more specific and state their new home MUST have a south or west facing garden so they can soak up the most hours of sunshine.A good garden can be a huge plus point for buyers, especially those with young children or planning a family.You don't have to have the green fingers of an Alan Titchmarsh or Monty Don to make it more appealing. At the very least you should make sure it is tidy, clutter free and colourful if possible. A trip to the garden centre can provide a lot of ideas about how you can breathe new life into your garden. There are also hundreds of websites out there include Pinterest which are full of ideas to enhance your garden.So don't just think outside of the box when getting your property prepared to sale - think outside of your home.Thanks for reading,Ben, You don't have to have the green fingers of an Alan Titchmarsh or Monty Don to make your garden more appealing.
