If you’re planning on putting your home on the market this season, you’re not alone. Autumn is one of the best times to sell, so preparing your home to show prospective buyers should go off without a hitch. In this article, we’ll explore the necessities for attracting buyers this time of year. Most importantly, protect your current home and your future one with a comprehensive DE Home Insurance policy.
Clean it up.
Your front lawn should look pristine, not be littered with leaves and overgrown shrubs. Colorful trees are the staple of fall, and can add a lot of character to your home. However, make sure the yard is clean and inviting.
Make it festive.
Toss a quilt or autumn-colored throw over a chair. After you’ve cleared away the clutter and depersonalized each room, bring a little bit of autumn hues to each room by placing bold-colored accent pieces in odd groupings such as 3’s and 5’s. You can also create an autumn centerpiece for the dining room table by arranging pine cones and nuts around orange candles and stick in a few leaves from the yard, recommends The Balance.
Clean out the fireplace.
This is a huge attraction feature for buyers, especially during the fall. If it’s wood-burning, ensure the soot is cleaned out, everything is functioning, and the flue is maintained.
Inspect the HVAC.
This is a big factor in home purchases. If your HVAC isn’t functioning well, your home might feel cold and less inviting. Chances are, future buyers are going to have your HVAC system inspected anyway, so save yourself the headache by inspecting it prior to listing your home and putting in a fresh filter.
Turn on the lights.
You want your home to match the feeling of fall: bright and cheery. Be sure to turn on lights in your home, clean windows, and hose down screens to allow light to get in and brighten up the space.
