Moving House With Artificial Grass
The great British garden is considered to be an extension of the home – an outdoor room segregated for relaxation and recreation.
2014 has been labelled as the year to sell with property confidence hitting an all time high, so if you are thinking about selling up this year you might be interested to know that research done by County Homesearch has revealed that a nice garden can add as much as 20% to the value of your home. With so many things to think about when selling a house, many of us can end up overlooking the importance that an attractive outdoor space with a tidy lawn can have.
Another study done by HSBC back in 2011 revealed that 96% of people also agreed that outside space is important when viewing a new property.
Nicholas Leeming, Business Development Director at property website zoopla.co.uk stated:
“It may be a cliché to say the British are obsessed with their lawns but the presence and maintenance of a garden can often make or break the decision to buy or rent a property. Sellers must remember that first impressions are everything and a well-tended garden – particularly at the front of a house – can greatly increase the appeal of a property and help maximise the price.
“Despite the additional costs of maintenance, the appetite for gardens from buyers and renters is still strong. In May, the term ‘garden’ was the third most searched criteria by people looking to buy property on Zoopla and for renters it was the single most searched attribute, a signal that the British obsession with gardens is alive and well.”
Even if you aren’t ready to sell up, your garden should be considered as a future investment, which may end up securing you your maximum sale price when the time comes to sell.
Making the switch from natural turf to artificial grass would ensure that your garden would stay looking lush and green all year round, and could be the deciding factor in whether a viewing turns into a sale.
We have helped so many homes transform their gardens with artificial grass, just have a look at some of our great testimonials on the site.
Whether you want a perfect show garden to flaunt to buyers or you simply want a practical, maintenance free green space to relax in until the time comes to sell up then artificial grass is the answer.
