Selling your home this fall9/9/2019
Fall is a great time to sell your home. Buyers are motivated to move quickly and there is less competition on the market. If you are thinking of listing soon, here are a few useful tips from our team:
- Make your home feel warm and cozy. Make sure the interior of your home is bringing in plenty of light during showings and open houses. Play up the scents and colors of the season with décor and candles.
- Clean up the exterior. Ensure the leaves are raked, there are fresh mums or Heleniums planted for added color, and fresh mulch has been added to garden beds.
- Know your audience. Since school is already in session, your buyers are likely to be families with babies, empty nesters, or folks without children. It’s wise to stage a bedroom as an office or a multi-function guest room.
- Make sure your heater is working, rain gutters are clear, windows and doors are free from leaks, and home is properly insulated. There’s nothing less inviting than a cold, drafty home.
An expert realtor will help stage your home to attract fall buyers. He or she should also provide you with the best listing price to motivate buyers to move before the winter. Ask for comps from last fall and most recent homes sales in your neighborhood. Good luck!
