If you have a garden outside your home which needs some work doing on it then you may have already faced the decision between garden and bedroom or garden and kitchen when there is some money available to invest in the home. Usually these types of decisions go the way of the interior of the home rather than the garden, and it is easy to see why. I felt the same as this until a couple of years ago when I caught up with a good friend who was working with property investment group Investar USA, who educated me on exactly why one should invest in their garden, let’s take a look.
The first thing to mention is that when it comes to going to see a lender about borrowing some money for your project, you will find that home renovation investment is often looked upon favorably by the lenders. What this means for you is that you should have a better chance of securing a loan should you need one, leaving you to do nothing more than check the rates and repayments, sign the fraud protection paperwork and the declaration, and hey presto you’ll have the funds.
Something which I was very surprised to learn about from my friend was the additional value which I could add to the home after investing in the garden. Because of the fact that so many house hunters across the USA find a garden desirable, you can both add value and increase your property salability. For the investment which I made into my garden it is estimated that I have added around 60% of my total spend, as added value on the home. In this regard you can very much view your spending as an investment, rather than a cost.
When you invest money in your garden and pay for a company to come and complete the work you will have a beautiful looking garden in no time at all. This means that there is no hassle, no waiting around, no toiling night after night to get the job done, simply find the right team, work out a price and then get the garden which you have always wanted in no time at all.
It is not just speed which you can count on when you invest money into your garden but you will also be able to count on a far higher standard of work than you may be able to do yourself. These companies specialize in garden renovations and that means that they do this kind of thing day-in and day-out. Any issues will be quickly resolved and thanks to the technical knowledge which they have you can make all kind of requests which they will be able to carry out.
Having a beautiful garden really adds something to your home and it will not only give you the benefits which we have already mentioned, you can also count on having a new space the home to spend some time.
