Showing land in the mountains

I have written a lot of blogs about land and the mountains. Today highlighted a point that sellers need to consider. We all know about staging a home. But what about staging land ? Aside from the obvious make sure there is no trash on the property observe the following;Exhibit A Lot for sale

The picture above is taken from a pretty wooded lot. You can see through the trees that there are mountains out there. The lot should have a pretty good view

Exhibit A

This is THE SAME LOT with Vista pruning. Which do you think is easier to sell ?  Vista pruning is to lots what staging is to homes. Now we tell folks come up in the winter and you will get a good feel for the view. But often kids are in school and it is cold. So folks come to vacation. It is beautiful and green . But some times the views are hard to see. So if you are working with a seller who has a view lot , or lake access, make sure they vista prune. .

View of another lot

Vista Pruning is not clear cutting. The lot above has a wonderful portal cut out showing a great view bordered by trees. It happens to be the view off my back deck. I am glad I did it on this lot. It means so much more and adds value to your home. This may not be a million dollar view but it sure is close. This vista pruning has added a great deal of value while leaving most of mother nature in tact. Remember, Seeing is believing!!
