Thinking of putting your home on the market this fall? With inventory lower than ever, now is a great time to sell your home. Following these tips will elevate your home’s curb appeal for the autumn season.
Spruce Up Your Home’s Exterior
Pressure wash your home’s exterior, clean windows and screens, clear out your gutters, and make any necessary repairs to shutters, siding and paint to keep your home looking its best.
Showcase Your Front Door
A charming entryway is a key to great curb appeal. Consider repainting your front door or updating your house numbers for a fresh look. Add visual interest by framing your front door with a couple of urns and a simple yet elegant wreath of fall foliage.
Update Your Landscaping
You may think that gardening is a spring and summer activity, however, when your home is on the market it’s important to keep gardening all year round. Put simply, using plants and flowers to decorate your home is a great way to pump up your curb appeal for pennies on the dollar.
Let There Be Light
As fall progresses, it will start getting darker earlier and earlier each day. With that in mind, you’ll want to make sure that any potential buyers that come to your home on a showing have plenty of light to lead their way. If you have a walkway leading up to your front door, consider adding lighting to both sides.
Keep Seasonal Decorations Simple
Subtle fall decor adds charm and appeals to your home’s exterior, but going too overboard will distract from your home’s best features. Keep the spooky decor to a minimum, especially if your home is already on the market.
