Selling Your Home in the Fall


Fall is the perfect time to sell your home – read on for tips on staging your home this season!

Fall is almost always a perfect time to sell your home. It is a time of perfect normalcy, where the kids are back in school and there are no holidays for almost 3 months. The exploding of fall colors outside make for picturesque beauty that enhances the appeal of any home. Here are some ways you can attract fall home buyers this season.

Keep that Lawn Clean!

Raking dead leaves and debris from your lawn keeps a neat appearance for your home. Also, trim bushes and cut overgrown branches from your trees to lead the autumn light into your home.

Fall Curb Appeal

Chrysanthemums and marigolds are great flowers to boost your home’s curb appeal in the fall. The yellows of these flowers really go well with the oranges and yellows of the tree leaves, and they keep for a while. You can also accent these flowers with pumpkins, gourds, and other fall accessories.

Window Shopping

Homebuyers notice and appreciate squeaky clean windows. Windows definitely suffer during the summer, with the rain and wind leaving them streaked with dust. Remove the screens and spray down your windows to attract the attention of homebuyers.

Check your Heating/AC System

When is the last time you checked your furnace air filter? You definitely want your home smelling good for potential buyers, and sometimes, sticking pumpkin spice candles around the house won’t do the trick. Change your HVAC furnace filter with one of the 90-day variety. Have the HVAC unit checked by a professional prior to turning the heat on for the season. Furnace problems are better fixed before the home goes on the market than after.

Prepare Autumn-Themed Food

Fall-themed scents will definitely complement the clean air in your home and really make it seem more like an actual home! Baking some pumpkin cupcakes or simmering some apple cider on the stove with cinnamon are great ways to fill your home with the smells of fall. It is also apple harvest season, so filling a bowl with fresh apples is another good way to set the mood.

Use Fall Accent Colors Inside

Reds, oranges, and yellows are all perfect to utilize inside your home to really make it look festive. Decorate your sofa with pillows in these colors. You can also create a seasonal centerpiece for your dining room table with some pine cones, nuts, leaves from the yard, and accented with orange candles!
