Selling your home in the Fall can come with its fair share of pros and cons. On one hand, there are usually fewer homes on the market to compete with, but there may also be fewer buyers. One of the biggest benefits that you have as a seller in the Fall, is that the autumn months are some of the most inviting and beautiful months of the year. The air is cool, the days are getting shorter, and the leaves are starting to fall. Take advantage of this wonderful season with Elka Interiors tips on how to stage your home for autumn.
Add Curb Appeal
The first thing that potential buyers will notice when they drive up to your home, is the outside. Make sure that your home has curb appeal by taking care of any fallen leaves, gutters, or brown spots on the lawn. You might even find some beautiful flowers that thrive in the cold to give your lawn and garden vibrant colors. Helenium, chrysanthemums, and winter aconites are all very popular fall plants that do well in the cold.
Brighten Up Your Home
As we mentioned, the days are getting shorter and that means that you’ll need to bring some light into your home. This will make your home feel more welcoming. You can do this by keeping all of your blinds open and turning on all of the lights in your home. This will make your home feel welcoming and be visible from the street. After all, curb appeal is very important.
You can also make your home feel warm and inviting by lighting some candles and making the most out of your fireplace. The warm lighting will make buyers want to stick around in your home longer and appreciate every aspect of your home.
Add Fall Colors
The best way to stage your home for Autumn is to add some color. Tastefully accenting your home with warm, fall colors will make your house look cozy and comfortable. Add some extra throw pillows and festive blankets to your living room and around the fireplace.
Use Seasonal Scents
Autumn is a great time to invest in some fall scents. Wax warmers and candles are a great way to excite all of the senses as guests enter your home for the first time. Amber, pumpkin, and cinnamon will pair with the autumn-themed decorations and warm candles to create an immersive feeling that will make buyers feel like they are already home for the holidays.
Less Is More
Finally, remember that while being festive and in the spirit of the holidays is a great way to make your home stand out, do not over-do it by going all out. Keep your home simple, elegant, and clean by choosing to err on the side of caution. You want your house to feel like a home, not a pumpkin patch.
This may seem like a big project to take on by yourself, that’s why Elka Interiors is here to help you with all of your Fall staging needs.
