Tips for Selling Your Home in the Fall!
Many people think fall is a hard time to sell a home. In our Northern Virginia area, fall is actually a great time to sell! Here are some tips to get your home ready for the fall market:
- 1. De-Leaf!
- Make sure you rake, remove leaves from the gutters, cut the grass, and trim the bushes! Curb appeal makes such a difference when selling your home. By keeping the leaves off and the yard and roof, your home will automatically stand out among others in your neighborhood just by looking leaf free!
Warm your entrance up with some mums and pumpkins. Put a leafy wreath on your door! Put some red and orange candles or throw pillows around! Adding fall decor can make a house feel homey and welcoming.
3. Warm up!
Make sure the inside of your home is warm and comfortable. Nothing like making a buyer cold to speed up their walk through your home.
Open up the blinds, turn on all the lights to help a home feel more open, spacious and warm. Dark spaces turn away buyers. So with days getting shorter in the fall, make sure you are bringing in as much light as you can!
5. Scents of Fall!
Your sense of smell is linked to your emotions! The smell of cinnamon or apple pie wafting through your home can help a buyer feel cozy and be able to emotionally picture themselves living there.
