Fall doesn’t have to be boring and without color. Here are some tips to keep up your curb appeal.
Plant Fall Flowers
– Add in color. As your summer plants start to fade, replace them with vibrant mums or other colorful flowers.
Highlight Your Front Door
– Making your front door the focal point of your home’s exterior is a good tactic no matter what time of year you decide to sell your home. During the fall, a simple wreath of fall foliage and flowers can add an inviting touch. A fresh coat of paint in a vivid red can also make your entrance stand out.
Clear Out All Gutters
– Staying on top of yearly and monthly maintenance lets buyers know you care about your home’s upkeep. During the fall, be sure to clear your gutters and downspouts of leaves and other debris, which will protect your home from water damage.
Add Outdoor Lighting
– As the days get shorter, it becomes increasingly important to provide potential homebuyers with a safe path to your front door. Use decorative lights to illuminate walkways, and install floodlights or lanterns to brighten up entrance areas.
