As the temperature starts to plateau and transition into crisp, fall weather, you’ll start to notice more and more people coming out to take a look at your home. Now, while you may not have the sharp summer-grass in your curb-appeal arsenal anymore, there are several things that you can do to get into the rustic spirit of fall and have a first impression stick. Here are some simple tips and tricks to make you home pop out this autumn season.
Of all the things that a potential buyer is going to notice, your front door is absolutely going to be one of them. A door with chipping or faded paint may leave a formidable first impression as one that has been recently touched up. So, do yourself a favor and break out that paint can—preferably a bold, fall color like burgundy—and give your door the touch-up it deserves. This project can cost you less than $20 and 2 hours of your time, but it is sure to leave an impression on potential buyers that they won’t forget.
Another important facet of fall curb appeal in cleaning up the exterior of your home. As the trees begin to shed their leaves, your gutters, roof, and porch can become inundated with orange and brown leaves. A house with leaves lying all over gives the impression of an un-kept one, so do yourself a favor and grab a broom. Cleaning up leaves on your property is yet another simple way to attract buyers, and make them fall in love with your beautiful home.
Finally, you can also make use of outside decorations to attract buyers, but let us issue a word of warning with that statement: keep it simple. An overuse of decorations can reduce the curb impact of your home, and actually drive away potential buyers. We recommend some fall flowers, a pumpkin or two, or an expertly placed hay bale for a maximum fall curb impact.
While curb impact is important for selling your home, it is not as important as having a team of experienced agents behind your back.
