4 Home Staging Tips for Fall

It’s that time of year, the seasons are changing and with them bring thoughts of the upcoming holidays, family get togethers, and planning for a new year. Selling your home in cold weather months doesn’t have to be difficult – these home staging tips for fall should have buyers feeling warm and welcome all winter long!

4 Home Staging Tips for Fall

In addition to turning on all lights, try to schedule showings during the daytime to take advantage of natural light.

1. The basics of preparing to sell your home still hold true. Curb appeal is still important even though leaves are falling from the trees and grass isn’t as green as it used to be. 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.

2. Interiors should be clean, organized, decluttered and ready for showings. Staging should be comfortable and cozy – or even festive. Bring warm elements to each and every room of your house with throw blankets, extra quilts on beds, warm area rugs, and bath mats on tile floors. Festive decor is appropriate in moderation – set the dining table with fine china, hang wreaths on doors, and you can even put up the Christmas tree. Buyers want to envision how they will celebrate and entertain in the home too – just don’t go overboard.

3. 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. In addition to turning on all lights, try to schedule showings during the daytime to take advantage of natural light. Open all drapes and blinds. Have windows cleaned to allow sunlight to stream in each and every window. Nothing beats the warmth of the sun on a cold day!

4. Extend the gardening season indoors. Just because temperatures are falling doesn’t mean you have to say good-bye to gardening! Buyers will feel coziest in a healthy indoor environment that keeps allergies at bay and reduces chances of getting sick. Some indoor plants, like golden pothos and gerbera daisies, are particularly adept at sucking up nasty VOCs — the vapors emitted from household cleaners, paints, and dry cleaning. And since plants increase humidity levels, they help decrease household dust. Keep it simple and your home will look inviting and fresh – going overboard will distract buyers from your home itself.
