Increase Your Property Value with Landscaping


If you don't consider landscaping a long-term investment, you probably should. According to the Appraisal Institute, good landscaping makes a great impression on would-be buyers, and helps to sell a property quicker than a comparable home with lackluster landscaping.

Featured Testimonial

by Brian Schaffer

Lisa and her Team at Wenzel Select Properties were a joy to work with during the process of selling my home. Lisa went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure my house sold quickly and at the best price. Lisa has a vast knowledge of how to get a home ready to sell and a great strategy to sell homes quickly. My house sold for a great price in less than three weeks. Lisa stood firm in negotiations to ensure that I got the best price for my property. I highly recommend using Wenzel Select Properties to sell your home.
