Tips to Help Your Buyers Dress Their Home for Fall Selling

Just because the weather cools down, doesn’t mean real estate selling will. The fall market has typically always been a hot buying season, with shoppers continuing to peruse post-back-to-school and pre-holiday season listings. How can you make the most of fall sales?

Eight Tips for Attracting Fall Home Buyers:

1. Clear Overgrown Summer Vegetation.

Wild bushes, runaway summer vines, fading flowers and foliage, and leaf buildup should be cleared away from the home, ensuring a clear path to the entrance and making the property appear low maintenance.

2. Add a Touch of Autumn Curb Appeal.

With mums, marigolds, pumpkins and gourds along the sidewalk and stairs.

3. Add a Touch of the Outdoors, Indoors.

After rooms have been decluttered and depersonalized, bring them by to life with the energy of autumn: Red, orange, and gold throw pillows; Autumn-inspired quilts and throws; Pine cone and nut table centerpieces; Orange candles; Bold autumn accent pieces in groups of 3 or 5.

4. Make Windows Sparkle.

Clear interior window smudges, then head outdoors, removing windows screens, bug and plant debris and cleaning the entire window area.

5. Maintain, then Light the Fireplace.

Have the chimney professionally maintained and key safety items attended. Then clean and decorate the fireplace surround and mantle with fall flare, lighting it when buyers come for a showing.

6. Think with Your Stomach.

Fill a bowl with crisp apples, then set out fresh pumpkin muffins or simmering apple cider.

7. Lighten Things Up.

With cooler weather, days are shortening, and this can darken rooms. Combat this by turning on every light in the house for showings (including closets).

8. Leave Treats.

As a parting treat, encourage prospective buyers to leave comments, leaving a bowl of snack size candy bars in return.
