Landscaping to Increase home appraisal value

Landscaping to increase your property value is a smart move! At Ananda Landscapes, we specialize in building custom landscapes tailored for enhancing lifestyles. With our time and experience building dream landscapes for Calgarians, naturally, we know what people want from their homes.

In an article published by House Logic about landscaping to increase home value, we see that good landscaping can add up to 28% to the overall value of a home. Curb appeal is drastically increased by adding particular trees, retaining walls, lighting, firepits, and water features! These are all great features to add to your home that are both aesthetically pleasing, and they increase the value of your home.

That being said, we do not recommend investing thousands of dollars just to flip a house. We recommend investing in your space for your family’s enjoyment. Professional landscaping increases your property value, but it also brings value to you and your family’s lives. Plus, when it comes time to sell your property you know that you have added value to your space and can sell it at a higher price.

 Creating Your Piece Of Paradise

Your landscape in uniquely yours. In saying this, when people are viewing properties they are imagining themselves and their families living in your home. Imagine looking out into a landscape and seeing a hot tub, you’re not just looking at the one feature. You’re imagining relaxing in a hot tub with friends or sitting on your deck while sipping a glass of wine. Extra features that really tempt potential buyers are classy fire bowls or an outdoor kitchen. It will be difficult to turn down a house that has a landscape that has been designed to suit an ideal lifestyle.
