Although warmer seasons are typically the busiest in real
estate, there are many benefits to list your home during fall – and especially
the Halloween season! It’s true that individuals purchase homes year-round, so
don’t become discouraged! Instead, we can develop a strategy that will make
your home stand out to prospective buyers. Once you have decided to sell your
home, let’s take the time and emphasize its seasonal amenities.
First, keep your lawn in shape. Just because summer
is over doesn’t mean that you should neglect your lawn. Patch up any brown
spots in the grass and keep falling leaves under control with frequent raking.
Second, improve your garden for the colder months. As your summer plants
start to fade, replace them with vibrant flowers like mums or other colorful
plants. Next, incorporate tasteful fall decorations, such as pumpkins or
tri-colored corn, adding to your home’s curb appeal. Inside, select charming
decorations that are not overbearing. Try an inexpensive window treatment or add a splash of color with new place settings and dinnerware. Fresh
decor will make your home seem current and well-maintained. A fall scented
candle is the perfect accent to create a cozy, inviting space.
Lastly, keep exterior photos of your home up to date.
Show pictures of your home in fall and summer to highlight all your home’s
features. This will give prospective buyers something to look forward to in the
upcoming seasons! For showings or open houses, offer marketing materials that
get noticed. Print cards with your home information and attach a few treats for
the kids. Selling your home will be easier than you think, and you will achieve
your desired results since serious buyers often purchase in the off-season!
