Curb Appeal When Selling Your Home in Autumn

Tasteful Fall Decorations

It’s autumn – a beautiful time of year to enjoy, especially when the leaves are bursting with color. If you are selling your home at this time of year, use the season to your advantage when staging it and add curb appeal:

Fall Debris

With the fall season, comes falling leaves. Make sure your gutters are free of debris. You will also need to be diligent about keeping the lawn and sidewalk free of leaves. You may want to invest in a leaf blower to make this chore go more quickly.

Flowers

Your summer flowers should be pulled or trimmed. If the weather is still warm, consider planting some fall plants such as mums or marigolds.

Decor

Tasteful fall decor can add appeal to your home’s exterior. Things look best placed in three’s. These little touches will make your home look warmer and more inviting.

Lighting

When daylight hours are shorter, be sure to have adequate lighting for evening showings.

Maintenance

Be sure to keep up on your fall exterior home maintenance list: Touch up paint. Cover up and fill and holes. Store your lawn equipment. Turn off exterior water faucets.
