Should You Upgrade Your Landscaping Before You Sell Your Home in Aspen
Whether you’re selling a luxury home in Aspen, a ranch in Basalt, or a condo in Snowmass, you’ll want to maximize its value before you put it on the market.
One of the things you can do that could improve your home’s value is to upgrade your landscaping—but you’ll want to talk to your Aspen Realtor® before you make any major investments, because some things just don’t pay off at the closing table.

Should You Upgrade Your Landscaping Before You Sell?

The average cost of landscaping upgrades is about $3,500. If you’re hiring a professional designer, you can expect to spend an additional $1,500. That’s the average across the nation, though, and it’s for the average-sized home; your cost will vary because your home is unique (and so is our area).
Some of the best investments as far as landscaping can include:

  • Sod
  • Plants
  • Regular maintenance (pruning, clipping, and other everyday jobs)
  • A new walkway
  • A small fountain or other accent that adds charm

Landscaping investments typically return 100 percent at close, but maybe the best part is the boost in curb appeal you’ll enjoy when people get their first impressions of your home.
