Have you ever been looking for a particular property and as you drive down the street looking for the address thought to yourself “I hope its not that one!” only to be either relieved that the address you are looking for isn’t the ugly duckling on the block or the feeling of disappointment that it is and that it “looked so much better in the picture”.
Whether you own the home or are just renting, having a nice looking home with well kept landscaping including flowers and a manicured lawn make a difference. Not only can a home with bad curb appeal upset the neighbors, but it can actually negatively affect the home values. No one wants to live next door to a home with toys or other items all over the front yard, let alone weeds or a dead lawn.
Also, if you live in an area with an HOA, the HOA can fine the owner of the property, which if you are renting could end up costing you, the tenant if you are in violation of the CC & R’s.
Take pride in the appearance of your home its a reflection on you and how you live.
