However, these will also apply when you are the seller, to in case you have considered selling a property, take advantage of these real estate tricks. The exterior of the house is as important as the interior, and a nice and organized garden will definitely help you get a better price, so you should start investing in this. Even if most people avoid spending money on a house they are thinking about selling, you must make smart investments and realize that these will end up bringing you profits.

Rearranging a garden is not that complicated, and all you have to do is organizing the outdoor space a bit and use the items you have around the house, such as furnishings or accessories. Since the outdoors are the first thing that will draw your buyers’ attention when they will visit your property, make sure you have a clean space around the entrance door: tidy around, remove old dry leaves and place some colorful flowers – this will prove that you are taking good care of the house and will make a positive first impression. Remove obstacles form the surrounding alleys, because visitors will want to walk around and make sure you do not miss anything, by asking a tertiary person to help you with the cleaning. Once you are done with this, start refurnishing the area: bring a coffee table, some nice chairs, a bench and even a lounge or a swing. This will make the space look usable and welcoming, and will also bring an added value to your property. When you choose some pieces of furniture for the garden, keep in mind that they will stay outside, so they have to be resistant to weather conditions and also easy to transport and hide inside of the house, in case of a serious storm.

Accessorize the space using vivid colors in beautiful combinations, but do not exaggerate unless you want the space to look kitschy: choose complementary colors that will not contrast with the natural green tone (yellow, brown, tan) and try to match them to the flowers you have around. However, remember to keep it simple and make wise decisions, because you may not have the same tastes as the buyers. Avoid making courageous and risky choices that can end up as a turn off – all in all: keep your options open.
