Love Your Home With Landscaping
By: Todd Christianson, Titan LLC, President/CEO
May 2023 marks my 41st year as a member of Anchorage’s landscaping industry. As someone who weathered the market crash of the late 1980s and the boom of the 2000s, I’m here to tell you today’s market is certainly uncertain. The stock market is down and housing prices across the majority of the U.S. are also declining. But Alaska is different. Our housing market remains steady and housing prices in many cases are on the rise.
If you’re interested in selling, one of the best ways to improve the value of your home is to boost its curb appeal. In fact, 80% of buyers say curb appeal is the main consideration when purchasing a home. Homeowners look at paint, landscaping and site improvements like decks and fencing.
Now is a great time to invest in landscaping. Things have slowed down slightly since the early demands of the pandemic. However, landscapers are still very busy. Plus, finding and retaining employees has been a huge challenge across many industries including the homebuilding industry.
Now is a great time to lock in a project and get a good price. If you plan on waiting to see what the economy will do, you may end up paying much more in the future. Or you may end up waiting months if not years for space to open up. As someone who has been in this industry for more than four decades, I see no indication that prices will drop. So if you plan to wait for a better price, you may end up waiting a long time.
Landscaping not only boosts curb appeal which leads to quick sales and better pricing, but it can improve your happiness with your home. So, even if you’re not looking to sell right now, it’s never a bad idea to invest in your home. Spring is a great time to line up some work. Our schedule fills up quickly, so visit titanalaska.net for an estimate or consultation. We look forward to a sunny summer and productive projects for 2023.
