Trying to sell a home with a torn-up yard?
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 re-seed 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 Golden Dog Properties, we buy houses as-is for cash and we can close in as little as two weeks. Give us a call if you want to hear our offer! 805-257-5780
