Home Staging Tips for Fall

Keep it warm

With the fall season comes cooler weather. To make sure buyers are comfortable while touring your home, make sure it stays at a comfortable temperature. It’s good to air out your home each day to freshen it up, just be sure to give it time to warm back up before buyers are scheduled to see it.

Accent with fall colors

When staging your home for sale, the décor should have a neutral palette to appeal to the widest range of buyers possible. Color is definitely a powerful asset, however, which we love to use in accents. During the fall, take advantage of all the beautiful, rich colors of the season through accents like pillows, throws, and fall foliage.

Fill your home with fall scents

Scent is a powerful element to use to make a home more inviting. For fall, use popular scents for the season such as pumpkin, cinnamon, and baked goods. Candles are one of the most effective ways to fill your home with a fall scent, just be sure to burn them for a while before buyers get there and blow them out right before you leave. You can also get plug-in or spray fragrances if you can’t burn candles.

Make your front door inviting

The front door is where buyers will get their first impression of the home, and first impressions are extremely important. Dress up the area with some fall touches like a rustic wreath, potted seasonal flowers, and a cozy welcome mat.

Keep the leaves swept

If you have a lot of fallen leaves in your yard and driveway, keep them swept every day so buyers can appreciate the landscaping. The curb appeal looks much better when it is clutter-free and provides a better experience when buyers are walking around.
