Top Tips For Selling Your House In Fall And Winter
The temperature is dropping, the leaves are changing, and pumpkin spice everything has taken over the world. With fall color and produce so prominent at this time of year, you may be tempted to load up your home with an abundance of both. But if you’re trying to sell your home now, a little discretion may go a long way. And that’s just one of the tips for selling your house in the fall and winter.
Pay close attention to your curb appeal
We’ve admitted to having a problem resisting the temptation to buy every available pumpkin and decorative gourd at the market at this time year, so we feel your pain. But when it comes to styling your front porch, there’s a slippery slope between nicely decorated and Farmer’s Market.
The idea is to enhance your curb appeal, not obscure it. “While too many fall decorations will take focus off of your home and its best features, a few tasteful accents can create an inviting setting and make your home feel fresh,” said HGTV.
You also want to make sure that fall leaves haven’t taken a toll on your yard. Buyers may be understanding if your lawn is covered and unkempt, because they’re living the same reality, but that doesn’t mean the home will make a good impression.
