The fall real estate market is almost always a hot season. Home selling in the fall is the second best time of the year to sell a home. Families have returned from summer vacations. Kids have gone back to school. The holidays aren’t here yet. It sounds like a great time to prepare to home to sell.
People are happy and relaxed as the temperature begins to drop. Home buyers are out looking, thankful the summer heat is behind them.
If you have been contemplating putting your house on the market, now is the time to do it.
Coldwell Banker Intercoastal Realty would like to offer you some tips for attracting buyers in the fall.
*Clean Up the Yard
Rake dead leaves and debris in your lawn. Don’t let overgrown vegetation block the windows or path to the entrance. Cutting bushes and tree limbs will let the sun inside and showcase the exterior of your home. Cut away summer vines and cut down dead flowers.
*Create Fall Curb Appeal
The most popular fall flowers are chrysanthemums (or mums), and they bloom for a long time. Marigolds are also good for fall. Plant them in pots and place them on the steps and along the sidewalk. You can accent with pumpkin or other fall favorites.
*Clean the Windows
Rain and wind from the summer months can make your windows dusty and streaked. You might not notice smudges, but buyers will. To sell a home, your windows need to sparkle. Remove screens and spray them down.
*Check the HVAC
You want the air inside your home to smell fresh. When was the last time you changed your AC filter? Have the HVAC system checked before you need to turn on the heat.
*Clean Out the Fireplace
Ah, nothing smells better than smoke from a wood-burning fireplace. If you have a gas fireplace, light it when buyers come through. If the fireplace is filled with cobwebs because it hasn’t been used for months, vacuum it out.
*Turn on the Lights Everywhere
Bring in the light. When days get shorter, the sun sets lower in the horizon and casts wider shadows. Pull up the blinds and push back the drapes on every window. Turn on every light in the house
