Five Staging Tips to Make Your House Stand Out This Fall

As the summer ends and the market cools down, it is essential to increase your home's appeal for the fall selling season. Here are five tips to help your house stand out from the others.

Curb Appeal

Regardless of the season, curb appeal is always an important part of every listing. Include some seasonal pieces, but keep them natural. For example, consider a real pumpkin rather than ghost decorations, or a pot of mums instead of a scarecrow. Not only will it have a nice autumn touch, but it will be easier for possible buyers to envision living there.

Bring the Outdoors in

Bring in the fall colors, but only if it meshes with your home's color scheme. Reds, oranges and yellows can really make a place feel festive and bright - therefore, making it stand out from the competition. If fall colors don't coordinate well with the pre-existing decor, consider placing bowls of pinecones and baskets filled with seasonal gourds. The more natural the decor is, the easier it is to imagine being the owner of the house.

Keep Your Home Well Lit

As the days become shorter, so too does the amount of daylight. Thus, it is vital to have working light sources in all of the rooms of the house. The more ambient the lighting, the more welcomed a potential buyer will feel.

Create Cozy Spaces

To create a cozy space, make sure to have blankets and pillows cleverly placed along couches and chairs in a decorative fashion. If you have a fireplace, have some logs inside to give the appearance that you are ready to light it at a moment's notice. Finally, if it's unusually chilly outside, make sure to have the thermostat at a comfortable temperature to ensure people will stay awhile.

Change Your Listing Photos

While this may seem like a lot of work, it is worth the effort. After a certain number of days, people start to believe that a property might not be what is pictured, or that something might be wrong. If you continually update the listing photos according to the season, it will not only deter people from having such concerns but will also make the listing seem just right for the season.
