Fall is a favourite season for many, whether it’s because of the cooler temperatures, the falling leaves, or the children going back to school. For sellers, the Fall real estate market opens the door to many options and opportunities as one of the industry’s busiest times of the year.
So how do you successfully prepare your home a fall sale? Here are a few tips:
Seasonal Curb Appeal
Summer isn’t the only time you can take advantage of the natural curb appeal. Fall’s colours provide a warm backdrop for any home, so long as the foliage is cleaned up and isn’t cluttering walkways or porches. Adding a few autumn accents, like wreaths and pumpkins, can add an inviting touch to the exterior.
Do a Fall Clean-Out
No matter what season you are listing your home in, decluttering should always be one of the first steps you take. It’s also a great chance to cut back on belongings before moving into your next home. Cleaning out your HVAC system and making sure gutters are clear is also recommended. If you need the help of a professional cleaner, I can happily recommend one.
Keep Your Home Ready for Showings
When your home is on the market, it’s important to keep the property looking its best so that you’re always ready for a showing. In the cooler months, creating a cozy atmosphere in your house makes it easy for prospective buyers to feel at home. If you own a fireplace, be sure to clean it out and hire a professional to clean the chimney before the first use of the season. During open houses and showings, a warm fire adds a comforting touch.
