Now that we have officially entered the fall season (as of September 23 to be exact), it may feel like we are on the downhill slide into winter when it comes to lawn care. But for sellers, fall is the perfect time to spruce up the exterior of your home and boost that curb appeal before listing.
Here are a few tried and true tips to keeping your home looking spick and span, and drawing in buyers.
Don’t Leave Those Leaves
The brilliant colors of fall may look great when they are still hanging from the trees surrounding your house, but as soon as they fall to the ground, they can crowd the eye and take away from the beauty that your home holds on its own. Rake the leaves up frequently as they fall and you’ll be glad you did – waiting until the ground is completely covered becomes a big to-do and if you’re selling, it’s likely you have enough on your plate already.
Pops of Color
While summer blooms have quickly faded, falls colors are in full swing – especially when it comes to mums! Mums are a cheap and simple way to bring some color back to your front beds, especially to frame your front door and porch.
Front Door Focus
A simple way to highlight your home’s entryway and draw the eye in is to add a simple and tasteful wreath to your front door. Bonus points if you can tie in the colors of any fall flowers you’ve potted or planted!
Now that it isn’t blazing hot out anymore (at least most days, anyways) fall is the perfect time to get outside and clean the gutters, power wash, and touch up chipping paint. You’ll be amazed at what these tasks can do to sprucing home your curb appeal. Trust us, it won’t go unnoticed by buyers.
Light the Way
Now that the days are shorter, it’s like that any potential buyers coming to view your home may arrive in the evening when it is starting to get dark. Always light up the front of your home by leaving on your porch lights, adding some lights to the path to the front door, or placing a few cozy lanterns out on the porch or steps.
If you’re still planning to list this fall season, we hope these tips – in conjunction with the advice and tips of your North Eastern Group Realty realtor—help to increase your curb appeal and draw many potential buyers to your door!
