Keep Your Yard in Check with TaskEasy

What would you feel if you walk into a property you’re interested in and you’re welcomed by an untidy lawn? If you’re interested in buying the property, you probably think ‘price reduction’. If you’re interested in renting the property, you probably think ‘maybe we can find a better rental’.

If you’re a flipper or landlord who owns the property, you won’t be happy that potential buyers or renters have these kinds of thoughts.

Keeping your lawn neat and tidy or your driveways and sidewalks snow free are important parts of investment property management. Maintaining a beautiful lawn can increase selling prices and rents. Yet lawn care is definitely not something you want to do yourself. Spend your time on more profitable activities.

How Important is a Perfect Lawn?

Apparently, it’s very important.

Much like branding, networking, and even dating, first impressions are crucial. Potential buyers and renters compare dozens of homes at the same time. You have to step it up for them to notice yours.

Many buyers or renters will just drive by a property. If they don’t like what they see on first glance, they keep on driving.

Maintaining a manicured lawn is an inexpensive way of making the entire exterior look presentable and appealing. Imagine what they would think if they pulled up to a perfectly trimmed lawn. And honestly, having a lush green lawn is just as important as having freshly painted walls.

The National Association of REALTORS 2016 Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features analyzed the different factors as to why property owners completely remodel the outdoors and the value the finished work brings to the property. The found out that maintaining a beautiful lawn definitely increases the value for money.

How to Book TaskEasy

TaskEasy made it a point to make booking easier for its users. All you have to do is to enter your address, get your price, choose your package, and then place your order. Additionally, service providers sent by TaskEasy may also suggest custom tasks you need for your property.

When the job’s done, you have two days to decide whether you approve the work or reject it. When you’ve approved of the job, the app auto-approves and the service provider gets paid.

On the other hand, if the task didn’t meet the customer’s standards, TaskEasy gives its contractors two days to respond and settle with the customer. But if the customer won’t relent, then TaskEasy will either get a new contractor to redo the job or fully refund the customer for the service fee.

TaskEasy currently holds America’s largest network of licensed and insured landscape contractors. To serve people better, they constantly read customer feedback on every contractor. If a contractor doesn’t have a high standard, then there is a huge chance that they will be removed from their system.

How Much Does It Cost?

The prices of different services differ from one another and this is based on three different factors: the type of service you’re looking for, as well as the size of service provided in your state.

You won’t have to bid or haggle with TaskEasy’s contractors about the price. They’re going to ask for the same amount for the same task. In other words, you’ll be charged with a fixed amount to mow the lawn regardless of which contractor does the job.

How to Pay

You’ll have to pay with your credit card while ordering a task online. TaskEasy will not charge your card until the task is done and if the customer is satisfied with the results.

Overall, TaskEasy is great for busy people who don’t have much time to attend to lawn chores. 


Do It To It! Immediate Action Steps

Go clean that lawn. It increases your home’s value, it looks good, and it creates a good first impression.

Set expectations for the rest of the property. Keeping the exterior of a property (close to) perfect gives the impression that the interior is well-maintained.

Delegate tasks. You don’t have to do everything by yourself. Ask for help when you need someone to help you mow the lawn, clean the house or whatnot.
