Fix Your Leaning Mailbox, Neighbor

Mailbox is part of the outdoor landscape that homeowners should not take for granted. The property value of a house will definitely go up a notch when the outdoor landscape is beautiful and well-maintained. Curb appeal is very important as well as the look of the streetside mailboxes in the neighborhood. During the 6 months period of our home searching and home buying escapades, we usually look at the neighborhood and if we see trash cans scattered in the yard, grasses not cut for weeks and mailboxes are leaning to the ground, we refused to see the property right away.

We have seen beautiful properties that were newly renovated and the outdoor yard is fantastic but, we always consider the next door property and the whole neighborhood. Was the house worth buying for? If the neighborhood does not care about the appearance of their street and the neighborhood, the home property value in that area will be greatly affected.

I just do not see why some homeowners cannot fix their mailboxes. A mailbox is neither expensive nor hard to install. My husband and I put up our own mailbox and it's easy. To make the neighborhood happy and fun to live, each one of the homeowners should take care of their own yard and make sure that little detail such as the mailbox should not be taken for granted.
