North Shore Yard Projects That Could Help Sell Your Winnetka or Glencoe Home

There is still plenty of summer weather left to enjoy and trust me, buyers are still out in droves searching for their dream homes! So does that mean all you need to do is stick a For Sale sign in the yard and sit back to wait? Absolutely not! There are a few projects that can help you increase your chances of landing a buyer and some of the most important are outdoors!

Below are five yard projects that could help you sell your home in Deerfield, Highland Park, Glencoe, Winnetka, Northbrook, and the surrounding areas:

Remove Debris and Overgrowth
There is nothing that can stop a North Shore homebuyer from coming to your door quicker than the appearance of an overgrown yard. Set aside a weekend to simply clear away debris like weeds, sticks and dead flowers, as well as give the lawn a good mowing.

Clean the Driveway
The elements can take a serious toll on your driveway and leave signs of dirt, grime, and even oil or grease from vehicles. Consider renting a power washer to clear away the stains from the driveway and pathways outside your home.

Remove Yard Clutter
Your home should present its best possible self when buyers arrive for a showing, so start by removing all clutter. This includes picking up kids toys from the yard, storing all lawn tools like rakes, hedge trimmers, and shovels, and even moving your vehicles to the garage. This helps your property to look as tidy as it possibly can.

Cater to the Buyer
If your home is in a great area, note that families may be looking to move in with their children and do your best to cater to them. Do you have a play set in the backyard? Now is the time to clean it up, so these family buyers can envision themselves living in your home.

Set the Scene
Buyers want to imagine entertaining their family and friends in the property and you can help them do so by setting the scene. Arrange your deck furniture in an inviting manner, complete with a clean grill, and maybe even a simple table setting with a candle and flower pot.
