Your home staging strategies are important, but making sure that your curb appeal is up to par is absolutely crucial. Without strong curb appeal, buyers may scratch your home off their list of prospects before they even look inside. The team at Eagle's Nest Realty is here to help you entice prospective home buyers into your home with these tried-and-true methods for enhancing your autumn curb appeal
How To Increase Your Autumn Curb Appeal
Keep Your Yard Clear Of Leaves
This tip may get things started on a slightly less than glamorous note, but its importance cannot be underestimated. Just as keeping your home clean is a critical part of your home staging efforts, keeping your yard raked clear of leaves is a crucial part of autumn curb appeal if you want to create a clean, welcoming appearance.
Hide The Evidence Of Summer
It's hard to get truly excited about the new season if you are constantly distracted by reminders of the last one everywhere you look. Before you go too in-depth with your autumn curb appeal efforts, take the time to put away summer's reminders. Wind up the hoses, take down the umbrellas, and store empty flower pots. This will give you a clean slate to build off of.
Adorn Your Porch (Or Driveway) With Mums
The flowers you had on your front porch all summer have probably died off, but that doesn't mean you should let your porch become empty and bare! Mums are a beautiful way to welcome the cooler months. For best results, we recommend mixing and matching a variety of different colored mums.
Accent With Pumpkins
Nothing says "happy fall" like a few bright orange pumpkins placed here and there in front of your home. As we approach Halloween and Thanksgiving, pumpkins can be a great tool for instilling seasonal cheer in each and every one of your prospective buyers.
Light Up The Night
In addition to the dropping temperatures, the ever-shortening daylight hours serve as a constant reminder of the new season. Bright homes are typically seen as much more welcoming than dark ones, so we recommend combating the early sunsets by keeping your front porch lights on - and possibly installing some extra lights along your porch or drive.
Mums and pumpkins will help you get off to a great start, but for the full effect, we recommend taking your seasonal decor efforts one step further. Hang an autumn wreath on your front door, for example, or adorn your front yard with other bright, cheery fall decorations. Adding these types of seasonal decorations is a great way to round out your fall curb appeal efforts.
