As your front yard or back yard blossoms into full glory, be sure to take some pictures and then – this is key – remember where you put them.
You never know when you’re going to put your house on the market. You might end up with a job transfer in the middle of an August drought when the yard is brown and ugly or January when there is a pile of snow.
Anyway, the point is, if you have those pictures of your yard and house at their best, it can go a long way towards overcoming a drab reality. And it might mean more money in your pocket at settlement time.
If you’re really stuck for taking pictures and you’re local, send me an email. I’d be happy to come take a few photos and then either email them to you or give them to you on a CD. Big plus – digital photos don’t take up shelf space!
