Summertime is one of the busiest times for selling a home. If you are thinking about putting your home on the market during this busy season, remember that curb appeal makes a significant difference in how fast you sell your home and getting your top dollar.

What is curb appeal?

Curb appeal is how your home looks from the outside. Does your home’s landscape look well manicured? Are the flower beds well groomed, and free of weeds? Let’s not forget about the trees surrounding your home and property. Ensuring trees are pruned appropriately will allow potential buyers to see your home and all its beauty. A home with an attractive curb appeal sells faster and yields a better price.

Why do I need my trees pruned if I’m selling my home?

If you are preparing to sell your home, you have probably discovered it involves more work, and money, than you initially realized. However, don’t forget about having your trees pruned. Potential buyers may quickly lose interest in a home if trees are overgrown, which not only take away from the beauty of the property but cause a threat to their safety. Although trees are nice for providing shade around your home, be sure not to let them grow out of control, with limbs hanging over the roof or power lines.

Why should I hire a professional arborist to prune my trees?

Pruning trees involve more than a ladder and some cutters. Knowing when and how to prune trees properly is necessary for your safety and the health of the tree. Trees that have been growing on your property for years tend to develop dead wood, which are branches that have died. If these branches are not removed, they may eventually fall on their own, which could be potentially dangerous for a homeowner. Hiring an ISA Board Certified Master Arborist means your trees will be pruned appropriately, and in a safe manner.
