Three Tips to Sell Your House in the Fall

Although in many areas, the real estate business tends to slow down in the fall, the season in Hot Springs Village affords a special opportunity to showcase your home at one of the most beautiful times of the year.

Here are three tips to help make your home more attractive in autumn, so you can sell your house before  winter comes.

1. Clean Up

As many regions slowly shift from a seller's market to a moderate or buyers' market, you'll want to do everything you can to make your house look its best.

Pay particular attention to eliminating clutter and safety hazards that can crop up with cooler weather:
  • Make sure your yard, walkways and gutters are free of leaves and debris.
  • Mow your lawn so it looks neat.
  • Trim trees so unexpected winds don't knock down branches that could damage your home or hurt anybody.
  • If it is rainy, be sure you have a good doormat so visitors can wipe their feet and not traipse mud and water through the house.
  • If you already have snow, be sure stairs and walkways leading to your front door are not icy.
  • Wash decks and wipe down windows so they sparkle instead of appear streaked by rain.
  • Vacuum and wash down the fireplace, especially if it hasn't been used in months.
  • Make sure your patio, is inviting and arranged with the views from indoors and outdoors in mind.
  • Above all, make sure your doorway and the rest of the house is clear from bicycles and toys and other items that make your home appear cluttered.
2. Create Autumn Curb Appeal

If your house's exterior looks drab, you may want to consider painting it a warm color, planting seasonal flowers, or placing pumpkins strategically along your walkup to accent your home's appeal with instant color.

Potential buyers will make an instant judgment when they see your home, and you want to be sure it's positive.

While you don't want to go overboard with fall decorations that detract from the home itself, a few displays like a festive front-door wreath - and lighting so people can clearly see the path to your front door - can add to the appeal of your home.

3. Keep the House Cozy

Warm up your home with a fresh coat of paint and set the thermostat at a comfortable temperature if it's chilly.
Another way to warm up a home is with light, especially as days get shorter leading into winter. Be sure to open blinds and curtains so plenty of light illuminates the home's interior.
Put your best face forward. A few embellishments like red, orange or golden yellow pillows can breathe new life into dull sofa. A fall centerpiece can brighten your home and add a welcoming ambiance.
While you don't want your home to look like the latest department store display, well-chosen embellishments can show potential buyers you've paid attention to the fine details and taken care of any problems with the home.
And remember, there's nothing wrong with trying to sweeten the deal with the comforting aroma of a freshly-baked, cinnamon-laced apple pie or pumpkin cupcake to leave a lasting impression of your home as the potential buyer takes a bite.
