The Grass Is Actually Greener For Home buyers

 

The grass really is greener when it comes to desirable homes. A well maintained green lawn is a real attraction for most Australian homebuyers.

“The grass actually is greener – adding up to $83,600 to the sale price of your home. Concrete slabs, pavers and synthetic lawns are out and buffalo is back after a new survey revealed home buyers will pay up to 19 per cent more for a house with a lawn.”
