Give Your House an End-of-Summer Makeover!
Good-bye summer! The holiday season is approaching and many sellers wonder if they should decorate their house during fall holidays while its on the market. What has been found best is that the client should proceed with what the family normally does and wants to do. Keep in in mind that you are selling so use the holidays as an opportunity to showcase the property but don’t go too overboard with seasonal décor. Here are quick easy tips at how to get started to get your house ready for a new season while it’s on the market.
Freshen Up the Inside
Start the transition with a good cleaning. From floors, ceilings, dusty fans, A/C filters, and flipping bedroom mattresses. Touch-up the paint around entryways and rooms that may show wear and tear. Now that your house is fresh and clean, make it smell the part. Stock up on your favorite essential oils and candles for an aroma that will remind you and your potential buyers of autumn.
Add Fall Décor
Nothing spruces up a home for the fall like warming up the décor from the kitchen to the bedrooms. Bring in nature with twigs and wildflowers, look for inexpensive ways to cozy up each room with fall colored pillows and don't forget fuzzy throw blankets. Keep in mind the fashionable colors of the fall season décor are colors of espresso, latte, mustard, vibrant shades of blue, and white on white with butternut accents.
Freshen Up the Outdoors
Don’t neglect your front and backyard at the end of summer. Faze easily into the fall with bold pops of color from seasonal flowers. Bright mums bring life to the fall setting, groups of pumpkins wherever you'd like to add a fall touch, and changing your patio cushions to neutral or brown. Clear out your back yard, deep clean the grill, get rid of your old wares for something new, and again adding light fall décor kick starts an easy transition.
