Fall is just about here and this is the perfect opportunity for you to spice up the front of your home and give it some great new curb appeal!
Buyers that looked at your house before, might look at it again! It’s always a good idea to keep your photos up-to-date and very appealing to a home buyer! Make sure to take new photos and place them online, and update any of your flyer’s or other marketing materials!
Your front lawn should look like a beautiful green carpet! Keep it free of fallen leaves and be sure there are no brown spots! Keep all of the beds free from weeds and make sure to water often enough that your flowers don’t look sad and droopy!
This is the perfect opportunity to spice up your yard with some beautiful fall flowers! Marigolds are affordable and come in a nice variety of colors! You can also add them to planters and window boxes for a real pretty look!
When a buyer walks up to the front door, they’re going to have a minute or two to look around. Make sure that your front door is sparkling clean! Add a simple fall wreath, new Welcome mat and a fresh coat of paint. This is your buyers first impression or how clean your home is! Make it count!
With beautiful blue skies and bright sunlight, any dirt or imperfections will stand out! Take the time to pressure clean the exterior and pay special attention to the windows! They should be spotless! Throw them open and let a nice breeze flow through! Buyers will love it!
Keep your gutters free of any leaves or other debris! Buyers will look to see if they are clean or clogged! Nice clean gutters will show them that you maintain your home!
With the sun setting earlier during these fall months, buyers may be navigating in dim light. Be sure to keep your walkway clear and well lit. Check your light fixtures and make sure they are clean, free from cob webs and have new bulbs!
You might be tempted to decorate your front yard with Halloween decorations, scare crows and other holiday decor. This year, keep it very simple instead. You have no idea whether your decorations will appeal or repel a potential buyer. It’s best to play it on the safe side and focus on using the beauty found in the fall colors as your guide!
