If you are trying to sell your home this fall, embrace the season and incorporate it into your staging efforts. Buyers like to imagine themselves living in your home; make this process easier by adding warm fall touches to your house that will set the stage for the season and give new buyers even more reasons to want to purchase your home.
Start By Cleaning Your Yard
The first thing you need to do is make sure that your front yard accents the best aspects of fall. Stay on top of raking up all the leaves that fall from your trees; fallen leaves can quickly turn brown and make your yard look ugly instead of attractive. Additionally, too many fallen leaves on the ground will remind potential buyers that next fall, they will have to rack up all those leaves. By raking up the leaves, you'll draw the buyers eye to the colorful trees in your yard, not the abundant leaves they will be responsible for.
If you don't have any fall flowers planted in front of your house, make a quick trip to your local nursery or garden center and pick out some colorful fall flowers to plant in your planters. Flowers make a home look more colorful and feel more put together; even in the fall.
Hide Summer & Accent The Fall Advantages Of Your Yard
Summer is over and all your summer toys need to be put away. If you have an inflatable pool, take it down. Make sure that all your pool and water toys are put away. Put away any yard decorations that are scream summer as well.
Instead, set up a fire pit and put a few chairs around it with inviting cushions in warm, cozy colors. Paint a picture so that potential buyers can easily imagine themselves cuddling up next to a fire on a crisp fall day in your backyard.
Decorate Your Main Entrance
Finally, invest a little money in decorating your main entrance. Hang up a fall-colored wreath on your door to give off a warm and inviting feeling. Decorate the sides of the main doorway with corn stalks, pumpkins and a few baskets of colorful mums. This will make your home feel warm and welcoming and will help potential buyers imagine themselves decorating up your house to match the seasons.
