1. Cozy Up the Place
It’s important to make the home feel warm during these cooler months. Add a soft blanket in the living room, use seasonal flowers or anything that will make the buyer feel as though they want to relax in your home and move right in.
2. Add Seasonal Scents…but not too much!
Add some scented candles in the room or bake an apple pie before an important showing. This will evoke the feeling of fall and bring back memories of the season. Try not to mix too many scents, as it could become overwhelming.
3. Bring in the Light
The days are becoming shorter so be sure to light all of your lamps before a showing. It’s best to have different light sources in a room. It also might be a good idea to add battery operated candles in these colder months.
4. Add Fall to your Yard but Don’t Overdue it.
Good Idea: Add seasonal decor such as pots of mums or pumpkins
Bad idea: Don’t add the large scarecrow display or the extensive spiderweb collection on the front bushes when you are trying to sell your home. I
Keep it tasteful so that your seasonal decor adds character to your wonderful home & doesn’t distract buyers as they walk up to your front door.
Remember! It only takes buyers LESS THAN 5 MINUTES to form an opinion on your home!
