Fall Decor That Will Sell Your Home
If your home is on the market during the fall season, appealing buyers in unique ways can help you sell ASAP! Move past the summer vibes and give your home an autumnal upgrade with our tips below.
Start At The Door
Fall into the autumn season on the right foot! By starting at the door, you can attract buyers with just the blink of an eye. Plant potted flowers in seasonal colors near the base of the door, add a wreath with fall leaves for a pop of color, and consider placing pumpkins or harvest corn in a barrel. Even adding a themed doormat and light fixtures will add a touch of shine for any person walking through the home.
Steer Clear of Halloween
While the autumn season seems to be universally loved, Halloween is not so much. Not all people celebrate this spooky holiday and many can be turned away from scary decorations on the front lawn or throughout the house. If you still want to put up a few decorations, steer more towards the pumpkins, leaves, and friendly decor.
Take Note Of Fall Tones
While the summer season embraces the bright, beachy tones, the Fall steers the opposite direction. The leaves are changing colors and deep reds, oranges, yellows, and browns become the trend. Spreading these tones throughout the house in bathrooms, as coffee table decor, and even in the kitchen can add a bit of a warmth feel. Always be sure to complement the colors with any existing color scheme.
Cuddle Up To Cozy
Warm up your couches, chairs, and bed sets with cozy throw blankets and pillows. Choose textured patterns with a reflective Fall vibe. Wool carpets or blankets also add a comfy feel. If you have a fireplace, light it before any showings and make sure that you have plenty of candles covering the tables and counters. Lastly, be sure to turn on table and floor lamps just before the sun sets.
Search For The Smell
When you think of Fall, one of the first things that comes to mind are the sweets that surround the season. Baking a pie in the oven can add an aroma to the home that will draw in a buyer. Scents of apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin spice will encourage a buyer to picture themselves baking up something sweet. If baking is not your forte, you can always add candles, oils, or a Scentsy to obtain a warm Fall smell.
Consider placing colorful candies or even candy corn in a clear glass jar on the entryway table. Doing this might intrigue a fatigued home buyer who is in need of a sugar boost, even those who may not be fond of Halloween will indulge in a bite-sized candy.
Thanksgiving is a major Fall holiday, so most families with be thinking about gathering around the table for a well-cooked meal. Help a potential buyer envision themselves at the table by decorating it with your best decor. Set the table to appeal to a large group and use Fall place mats and centerpieces to blend with your theme.
