We get it…
For better or worse, the first thing that buyers see — before they even walk in your house — is the lawn.
And if that yard leaves a bad first impression, it can make potential buyers walk away without a second-glance.
Fortunately, that’s not how the story has to end.
If you’re trying to sell a home with a less-than-pretty yard, here are some things you can do.
Fix The Lawn — If you have time and money that you don’t mind spending on fixing up your lawn, then this is your first option. You can pull up weeds, mow, and reseed your lawn where necessary. But be aware that it can take up to a month for your yard to get looking like you want it to.
Purchase Turf Grass — This option is certainly quicker than trying to repair your lawn, but it also can be quite expensive. It costs between $5 and $20 per square foot. So you’ll definitely need a hefty budget to make this happen.
Sell To a Professional Homebuyer — If you don’t want to worry about repairing your lawn and you don’t want to pay for expensive turf grass, you might just consider selling to a professional homebuyer like us. At Hammock, we buy houses as-is for cash and we can close in as little as two weeks. Give us a call at (813) 324-3131 if you want to hear more!
