Fall is a great time to sell your home. Sellers can take advantage of the warm colors and rich foliage. Here are some tips to catch a Buyer's eyes this fall season.


Freshen Up Exterior

As leaves fall and foliage fades the imperfections of the exterior of your home become more obvious. Pressure wash the exterior and clean the windows. If the paint is chipped or faded, applying a fresh coat will do wonders!


Clean Out the Gutters
During the fall, be sure to clear your gutters and downspouts of leaves and other debris. This task lets buyers know you invest time in regular maintenance and care about your home's upkeep.


Clean Up the Yard
Rake the fallen leaves, and touch up any brown spots in your yard, and get rid of the weeds. Cut away summer vines and cut down dead flowers. Replace summer and spring plants with mums and marigolds and other colorful plants.


Add Outdoor Lighting
As the days get shorter, use decorative lights to illuminate walkways, and install flood lights or lanterns to brighten up entrance areas. Proper outdoor lighting will make your home feel welcoming to buyers.


Keep Decorations Simple
A simple wreath on the door or pots of seasonal flowers will make your home look inviting and fresh, going overboard will distract from your home itself. Save your spooky Halloween decorations for another year.
