Fall is a great time to sell your home. Several studies, including one by Redfin research, show that, on average, homes listed during this time are more likely to sell, sell more quickly, and sell closer to the asking price.
If you are ready to list, there are a few things you can do to make your home inviting to eager buyers this fall:
Use fall decor but keep it sparse.
Place a few vases with fall foliage or a bowl of seasonal fruit in your kitchen. And, pick a few good pumpkins to put out on the front porch.
A fresh coat of paint is essential, no matter what time of year you sell your home.
If you are selling in the fall, use warm fall colors that stay neutral, like caramel. Small accents of color like deep orange and vibrant reds around your house will make your home inviting.
Keep your home bright.
With the days getting shorter, it is crucial that you have enough lighting. Let in as much natural light as you can and consider having additional lighting installed if your home doesn’t get a lot of natural light.
Make your home inviting.
A well placed, soft fall-colored throw blanket on the sofa, a warm crackling fireplace and the smell of cinnamon can make your home feel like the perfect place to feel cozy in.
Don’t forget about your curb!
Have your home power washed to give it a nice, clean look. Have your windows cleaned, so they sparkle. Consider painting your front door and the trim on your windows. Have your lawn spruced up weekly to remove any leaves. Include a few pots of yellow mums to brighten up your porch.
