    4 Tips for Increasing Your Curb Appeal in the Fall

    4 Tips for Increasing Your Curb Appeal in the Fall

    With demand high and inventory low, the housing market is showing no signs of slowing down. In light of this, you may find yourself ready to sell outside the peak summer season. If you’re planning to put your home on the market this fall, keep these tips in mind to increase your curb appeal during the fall season.

    Lookout for Leaves
    Golds, oranges and fiery red hues in the trees add charm and beauty to any home’s landscape. However, you’ll need to stay on top of those leaves as they begin to fall from their branches. The leaves may add beauty while in the trees, but piles of foliage blanketing the yard can look unkempt and send the wrong message to buyers. Stay on the lookout for leaves and ensure that you’re addressing them soon after they fall.

    Avoid Excessive Harvest Decor
    Halloween and Thanksgiving may offer a cornucopia of fun decorating options, but this year it’s best to scale back. Just as you want to limit your decor within the home, you will want to do the same outdoors. Too much themed decor can make it hard for buyers to visualize the property catering to their own style choices.

    Make It Cozy
    While you may normally begin to store your outdoor furniture during the cold seasons, it’s wise to keep them out while selling your home. Outdoor furniture can make your exterior space feel homey and inviting. Don’t pass up the opportunity to add chunky blankets or a warm fire pit. Give buyers the idea that they can easily enjoy the home’s outdoor areas year round.

    Find Harvest Season Foliage
    Update your landscaping to include hardy plants that can endure the colder weather. Mums, pansies and even sunflowers can add bursts of color and beauty even as the weather cools. Check with a local landscaper or a nursery owner in your area to find out exactly which plants will do well in your climate. You want to add beauty without worry that your landscaping will begin to die when the first frost hits.
