If you intend to sell a home, it helps to allocate time and resources to produce an effective property listing. Ultimately, a house listing can help a property seller make a positive first impression on potential buyers. And if a listing is informative and engaging, it may lead a buyer to set up a house showing.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you craft a house listing that hits the mark with prospective buyers.

1. Analyze the Buyer's Perspective

Think about why a buyer may pursue your house over all other available properties. Then, you can put together a home listing that accounts for the buyer's perspective.

As a home seller, your goal is to stir up interest from as many potential buyers as you can. If you assess the buyer's perspective closely, you can craft a home listing that accounts for key factors that distinguish your residence from other properties. And as a result, your home listing may help you make your house an attractive choice to dozens of prospective buyers.

2. Provide Accurate Home Information

Although you may be tempted to stretch the truth when you craft your home listing, there is no reason to do so. Because if you try to hide home problems from buyers, you may put a property sale in jeopardy down the line.

On the other hand, if you include accurate home information in your listing, you can help a buyer make an informed decision about your house. And if a buyer finds your home may match his or her expectations, this individual could set up a showing to take an in-depth look at your residence.

3. Include High-Resolution Photos of Your Home

High-resolution photos that show off the beauty of your kitchen, bedrooms and other areas of your house are must-haves in your property listing. In some instances, you may be able to capture spectacular images of your home with your camera or smartphone. Or, you can hire a professional real estate photographer to take pictures of your home for a property listing.

Clearly, there are many things you can do to transform an ordinary house listing into an exceptional one. And if you work with a real estate agent, you can get expert help as you prepare a home listing and perform other house selling tasks.

A real estate agent understands how to sell a residence and is happy to share his or her housing market insights with you. This housing market professional can help you promote your home to prospective buyers, review any offers to purchase your residence and much more. Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent will provide honest, unbiased home selling recommendations to ensure you can maximize your house sale earnings.

Prioritize your home listing – you'll be glad you did. If you devote the necessary time and resources to craft a listing that highlights your home's features, you may be better equipped than ever before to enjoy a successful property selling experience.

As you look for ways to avoid spending a lot of money on your landscape, you need to learn about xeriscaping. In suburban areas, up to 80 percent of the water used for a household goes to preserve a lawn or yard. For those who want to invest in some landscaping but who do not want to maintain the irrigation needs of vast swatches of turf, this concept is one you should learn.

What is Xeriscaping?

Xeriscaping is a thoughtful process of using little or no water for your landscape needs. Professionally, it is also any of the following:

- landscaping explicitly designed for areas that are susceptible to drought;

- gardens designed for properties where water conservation is essential;

- lawn conditioning for those who want more environmentally friendly means of watering plants; and

- landscaping for those who want to save money on water. 

The origin of the word is from the Greek word “xeros” which means "dry." Taken in this particular context, it means "dry landscape."

Advantages of Xeriscaping

Aside from the appealing fact that it saves water (between 50 and 70 percent reduction on your water bill), the following are the advantages of adequately installed xeriscaping:

- Increased property value: Great landscaping always increases the value of a property, but xeriscaping also improves the bottom line by saving on the need for irrigation lines and maintenance and the cost of excess water use.

- Xeriscaping not only reduces the need for water but if thoughtfully installed, it works as a means of pest control. Citronella helps repel mosquitoes, lavender wards of ticks and mites, and other plants work for different pests. Research your region and the native plants that are available to install the best pest control species for your home.

- Typically, xeriscape plant selections are self-propagating, so you save on having to buy and install new plants each year.

- You will reduce maintenance costs because most drought-tolerant or native plants do not require mowing or pruning. Additionally, when using native plants, weeds have less opportunity to take over and bees, butterflies, and birds find a home.

- Because it is all about the conservation, most xeriscape designs include the artful use of gravel, stones, and pavers to add utility to the grounds.

Now that you know the about concept of xeriscaping, you can learn more about it. Ask a landscape professional to review your property to see where xeriscaping can add value to your home.
