Beautify the Outdoor Living Space
Continue to tidy up the yard regularly so that it always looks its best for buyers. Rake the leaves, clear the gutters, repaint where needed, prune bushes, add fall flowers, buy a new door mat, and sweep the front porch and walkway before every visit. A well-maintained home will inspire confidence in buyers who will then find it much easier to imagine living there.
Get the Rooms Ready for Photos
To stand out and charm buyers, your residence must be in impeccable condition. This doesn’t mean yours must be a luxury property. It’s all about knowing how to make it as attractive as possible to buyers on listing sites. Ideally, the house will be cleaned and decluttered of all superfluous or overly personal items. To encourage the greatest number of potential buyers to want to make the space their own and come see the residence without delay, the photos, taken by a professional, should depict a minimalist decor.
If you can, get the house ready for a photo shoot at the start of the season, when the leaves in the trees are at their most colourful for added visual appeal. If you know in advance that you must move the coming fall, take the outdoor photos in the summer. This is an especially valuable tip if your yard is particularly well landscaped.
Highlight the Property’s Best Features
An autumnal ambiance will look wonderful on photos and for visits. Nevertheless, skip the Halloween decorations in favour of a darker and neutral decor throughout. Additionally, open the windows (a few minutes will suffice) in each room before every visit to let the fresh fall breeze in. Then think about creating a cozy atmosphere by scenting your home with a pumpkin spice, orange, pine or eucalyptus essential oil diffuser. What buyer could resist! A scented candle will work just as well. But don’t blow out the flame as this will give off a burnt smell. Use a snuffer instead.
