One of the most beautiful seasons of the year is Fall. It’s also a time when people want to feel cozy and warm. If you can create the essence of fall, your home will be that much more appealing to buyers on an emotional level. To set your home apart from the competition, try these tips to get buyers falling in love with your home as soon as they walk in the door.
Keep it warm
The fall season brings cooler temperatures. Make sure buyers are comfortable while touring your home, keep it at a comfortable temperature. It’s a good idea to air out your home on a daily basis to freshen it up, but be sure to give plenty of time to warm back up before buyers are scheduled to view it.
Accent with colours of the season
When staging your home for sale, the decor should be as neutral as possible in order to appeal to the widest range of buyers. Colour is definitely a powerful tool, which can be used in accents. During the fall, take advantage of all the beautiful, rich colours of the season, using accents like pillows, throw blankets and towels.
Fall scents for your home
Scent is a great way to make a home more inviting. Be careful of strong scents as they may work against you. For fall, use popular scents for the season such as pumpkin, cinnamon and baked goods. Candles are the most effective way to fill your home with a fall scent. Burn them for a while before buyers get there and blow them out right before you leave. Plug-in or spray fragrances are effective as well, if burning candles isn’t an option.
Make your front door inviting
Buyers will get their first impression of your home, at your front door. First impressions are extremely important. Dress up the front entrance with some fall touches like an autumn wreath, potted seasonal flowers and a welcome mat.
Keep up with fall leaves
If you have a lot of fallen leaves in your yard and driveway, keep them swept every day. It will be easier for buyers to appreciate the landscaping. Your curb appeal looks better when it is free of clutter and is neat and tidy when buyers are walking around.
