Dress your Santa Cruz Home for a Successful Sale

Spring is here and there is no better time to give your yard a fresh look.  Here are a few simple tips to make your Santa Cruz home sparkle this spring.

Tip #1:  Everything is blooming; take advantage of it. 
Clean out the flower beds and let them shine.  Don't have a flower bed?  Now is the perfect time to create one (or more).  Visit your local nursery to purchase small starter plants, large mature plants and everything in between.  Mix them to make your beds look their best.

Tip #2:  Get a lush lawn.
Reseed your yard, or if you don't want to wait, purchase sod rolls.  If your lawn is in good shape, take the time to edge the sidewalks and driveway.  Mow in a pattern to give your lawn a manicured look.  To keep your grass healthy, alternate the mowing pattern. 

Tip #3:  Take it up a notch.
Add little touches like decorative edging, mulch and walkway lights.  Put edging around trees and shrubs then fill with mulch.  Easy to install walkway lights along the driveway and sidewalk add style and security.  Don't forget the porch light.  A new light fixture with a high and low beam saves energy, provides security, and lets buyers see your Santa Cruz home easily in the evening.
Dressing your Santa Cruz home for spring helps it stand out from the competition.  It also gets buyers excited about seeing the interior of your home.
