3 TIPS TO SELL YOUR HOME THIS FALL!

3 Tips to Sell Your Home This Fall

As temperatures dip and fall settles in with the promise of winter ahead, home owners need to pay extra attention to certain details in order to set themselves apart from the competition.

1. Maintain your landscape. Flowers aren’t exactly flourishing this time of year but sellers should still make the most of what they have. Adding fall flowers like mums to your front porch or deck is always a nice touch. More importantly grass should be cut at least once per week and leaves should be cleared as much as possible.

2. Keep your house warm. Prospective buyers will be turned off by a cold house, not giving it the chance it deserves. Spend the extra money to make your home as inviting and comfortable as possible. Also keep in mind that you don’t want it to be too warm because bundled up buyers will be uncomfortable and your utility bills will sky-rocket. I’d recommend keeping the thermostat set in the upper 60?s.

3. Let in the light. If your showing is during the day, open blinds, windows and drapes. If not, turn on all the lights in the home and brighten darker rooms by placing spotlights behind the furniture.

Fall is a great time to sell your home because a lot of prospective buyers are hoping to make a decision before the holidays. Take advantage of the fall market by pricing your home correctly and working with a licensed and experienced agent.
