'Tis pumpkin season, once again! Fall scents and sounds fill the air, and it is a great time of year to sell your house. In fact, Autumn is the second-best season for home sales in this area. It is also a great time of year to incorporate the season into your staging and décor plans. Channel your snuggly side and get those fall candles ready! Grab your PSL and read these Realtor approved helpful hints:
#1- Celebrate the season in your yard!
Curb appeal is always the number one thing that draws buyers in. The weather will be cooler and prospective buyers will be willing to venture around the yard, so landscaping could easily make or break the deal. Focus on creating spaces in your yard for families to spend time in outdoors. Consider getting some mums or other fall flowers to add those warm, vibrant colors to the scenery. Ali's Nursery in Southington always has people willing to help you choose plants that will work for your setting! Lastly, make sure you keep up with the falling leaves! As pretty as they look on the trees, buyers are going to want to see the yard, not just a bunch of leaves on the ground.
#2- Cozy up the inside!
The air is crisp outside, so make your house warm and cozy inside. Create a fall ambiance that makes people want to settle in and never leave (so they have to buy it!). Choose vibrant fall colors for vases and flowers. Don't add clutter, but a few fall accents can really pop. Add a snuggly throw to your couch or armchair to make the living spaces more inviting. Accent the fireplace by decorating your mantle or lighting a fire for showings. Don't be afraid to appeal to their sense of smell with nostalgic fall scents like pumpkin, apple cider, and cinnamon. (Pumpkin Spice Latte is a scent, right?!) Just For You gift shop in Southington has great décor items and candles for all of your fall needs!
#3 - Light it up!
Lighting is everything, especially as it gets darker even earlier. Make sure your house has warm lighting -no fluorescent bulbs- and keep the house bright for showings. Use natural light as much as you can with accent lights turned on. The candles will add to the lighting ambiance, as well. Make your home as inviting as possible so buyers feel welcome and cozy inside.
