We all know the value of curb appeal when it comes to real estate. After all, first impressions really matter when you’re buying or selling a home.
But a recent survey conducted by Briggs & Stratton Corporation revealed some surprising results about homeowners’ confidence in the curb appeal of their own property.
The survey of over 2,000 U.S. adults found that 62% of homeowners were influenced by their lawn when they bought their home. But only 44% of those same homeowners reported feeling that their lawn had a lot of curb appeal.
Why the disconnect? Results indicate that homeowners are not sure about how to improve their homes’ outdoor aesthetics. Additionally, people may be intimidated by the cost and time needed to boost the appeal of their home’s outdoor area.
