Whether you’re looking for a buyer for your commercial property or you just want to increase its appeal to prospective tenants, it’s important to give the outside areas some love and attention. The exterior of your commercial property is the first place a potential buyer or tenant will look and when it comes to property, first impressions are everything.
Making the outside of your property more visually appealing doesn’t have to involve extensive landscaping and huge costs. Here are a few simple tips and tricks you can use to increase the visual appeal of your property and boost its value.
- Keep lawns and grassy areas tidy. An unkempt lawn makes your property look uncared for and untidy. Make sure you take a bit of time to define your lawn edges and mow regularly.
- Mulch your flowerbeds. Again, this can help make your property look more cared for and better maintained as well as improving the appearance in the eyes of potential buyers or tenants. Make sure you weed regularly as well – a mulched flowerbed that’s teeming with straggly weeds is not going to give anyone the right impression.
- Block out busy roads with plants. A tall hedge or row of trees is a great way to not only deaden the sound from a main road, it creates a more pleasing outlook and a sense of privacy for your tenants.
- Put planters at entranceways. Adding planters with flowers at the entrance to your commercial building will immediately create a more welcoming feel for people when they arrive.
These four simple landscaping tricks can make your property immediately seem more appealing and attractive to outsiders. This, in turn, can help you attract better tenants and increase the amount potential buyers are willing to pay for your property.
