Arborists Will Literally Help Your Make Thousands of Dollars When You Sell Your Home

By: albertaarb - June 15, 2016

Want to up your home's value? An arborist might be able to help with that. As Arborist News tells us, trees in the front yard can increase property values by 3-5%, and mature trees in high-income neighbourhoods can increase property values by 10-15%. A trend across the studies considered showed a correlation between the presence of trees and about a 7% increase in property values. Both tree-planting and improvements to a home's landscaping make a difference, particularly in "lower-quality neighbourhoods." So why do trees make such a difference? Read on to find out.

Better Looking, Better Price

Put simply, trees make your home look better. According to Realtor Mag, trees can increase your home's curb appeal and "camouflage unsightly views." Well-maintained trees can be beautiful additions to landscaping that also provide shade in the summer.

Environmental Advantage

Green living is happily gaining momentum, with eco-friendly and organic products everywhere, from grocery stores to clothing shops. Healthy and plentiful trees can contribute to your property being perceived as an eco-friendly home. According to ISA Ontario, Canadians value the freshening of the air, the environmental quality, and the oxygen production that urban trees provide, alongside their shade and aesthetics. ISA Ontario also reports that "trees and other elements of natural vegetation were pivotal in people’s development of an eco-consciousness."

Not Maintaining Trees Can Cost You

While healthy trees can increase a home's value, the opposite is also true. Realtor Mag reports that unsightly or unhealthy trees can "signal major work and expense," reducing potential buyers' interest in a property. Realtor Mag recommends removing trees that might be liabilities. An arborist can help remove trees that are harming your home's value as well as spruce up those that are potential assets.
