Fall Home Staging Tips.

If your home is on the market this Fall, you’ll want to spend time paying attention to a few key areas when staging your home.

Curb appeal. As your summer perennials and annuals fade to Fall’s cooler temps, replace flowers at the front entry spaces with mums or other colorful fall plant material. Add pumpkins for seasonal decor.

Prep the front door. Add a Fall wreath to the front door. Change the paint color of your front door to be a great pop of color to contrast your brick, stone or entry area.

Maintain the yard. As you can lessen the frequency of lawn mowing, be sure to keep leaves raked and the sidewalks and walking paths clean of fallen leaves and Fall’s debris.

Warm up your home. As the temps start to be cooler, in addition to being sure your home is warm during showings, be sure to stage your home to be cozy. Have a small stack of wood by your fireplaces, add a cozy or colorful throw to the sofas and have candles throughout the home (but keep them unlit so that potential buyers don’t think your masking a home odor).

Let natural light shine. As the sun sets earlier in the day, make sure you take advantage of natural light by leaving window curtains open and lights on during late afternoon and evening showings.

Bring the spa home. Make your bathrooms spa-like by adding touches of nicely rolled plush white towels, a decorative tray with small toiletries for guests, a new shower curtain or open shelving with baskets for pampering treats.

With these simple tips, your home will show well this Fall. If you’re in the market to list your home, contact me. I look forward to talking with you about your home selling needs.
