Curb Appeal Tips for Fall
September 14th, 2015 | by The Update
If you’re planning to sell your home during the fall, here are a few ideas for getting your home ready to sell in seasonable fashion:
Add Fall Flowers
Once your lawn is looking its best, spice it up with a splash of color. As your summer plants start to fade, replace them with vibrant mums or other colorful flowers.
Spruce Up the Lawn
While brilliant fall foliage can automatically make your home look more attractive for showings, that doesn’t mean you can slack off on lawn maintenance during this season. Keep falling leaves at bay with frequent raking and patch up any brown spots in the grass.
Highlight the Front Door
Making your front door the focal point of your home’s exterior is a good tactic no matter what time of year you decide to sell your home. During the fall, a simple wreath of fall foliage and flowers can add an inviting touch. A fresh coat of paint in a vivid red can also make your entrance stand out.
Light It Up
As the days get shorter, it becomes increasingly important to provide potential homebuyers with a safe path to your front door. Use decorative lights to illuminate walkways, and install flood lights or lanterns to brighten up entrance areas.
Keep It Simple
While subtle fall decor — a wreath on the door or pots of seasonal flowers — will make your home look inviting and fresh, going overboard will distract buyers from your home itself. Save your scarecrows and spooky Halloween decorations for another year.
