It's fall and your house is on the market. There are a few inexpensive steps that you can take to transform your bright summer style and decor into the new season. Consider transitioning for a feeling that leaves your warm and cozy and ready to bundle up for a hot cider and football game.
1. Curb Appeal
The exterior of your home is the potential buyer's first impression. It is imperative that you keep your lawn and shrubs maintained, but also keep your gutters free of debris, siding and driveway clean and use seasonal decor and potted flowers to add a touch of color.
2. Natural light
Natural light is essential to highlighting your home's best features. Keep blinds open when showing your house and use mood lighting and lamps for additional illumination.
A fresh coat of paint is a classic way to revive the interior of your home. Rich, neutral tones will offset pops of color in your home's decor.
Show off features of your home that will draw potential buyers to them in this cool season. Arrange your living room furniture around the fireplace, incorporate cozy throws and pillows on couches and bedding and drape plush towels on hooks in your bathroom.
5. Less is more
As always, de-clutter for maximum benefits. The idea is to entice buyers to your home's natural features, not your personal taste. Simple fall foliage, cozy textures as well as seasonal colors and scents will tempt their senses and stay in their minds long after they have left.
