Summer holidays are finished, school has officially started and home buyers have begun their search for a new property before the winter snow falls.

 Tips for Fall  home sale preparation:

  • The focal point of a home during the fall and winter months differs from spring and summers full gardens, dressed patios and opened pools
  • Curb Appeal is still important so keep the yard clean, rake leaves and compliment the entry with seasonal fall planters.
  • Exterior work still needs to be completed during the fall and winter months. September is a great time to freshen-up any paint, trim bushes and clean the exterior windows one more time.
  • During the fall and winter months focus must be on the interior of the home.
  • Let in the light. Days shorten so keep curtains and blinds open. Turning lights on gives prospective buyers the opportunity to take a peak of the home during a drive-by.
  • The colder it gets the more appealing a warm and cozy fireplace appears so if you have one put it to good use and make it a focal point.
  • Wipe your feet! Update the entrance floor with a weather appropriate mat.
  • Remember, open windows daily 15 minutes to 60 minutes to keep the home fresh smelling.
  • Keep in mind, as in any other season keep all areas of the  home de-cluttered, clean and fresh smelling.
