How To Stage Your Home For Fall Real Estate Success

If your home is set near trees in the fall, mother nature will take care of making sure your landscaping looks beautiful for a fall real estate sale in Northeast Ohio.  The interior?  Well that’s up to you.  Although there is always a bit of a lull in the action as the weather turns, lower competition can really turn the season into a seller’s market, and you can put yourself in a position to capitalize.  Here are some ideas to help you get your home looking its absolute best for a fall real estate showing:

Decorate, but keep it simple.

Drug store Halloween decorations and lots of pilgrim figurines can take attention away from your home’s most distinguishable features.  Use lots of fall foliage to spruce up the place and add a touch of color naturally.

Color your walls.

Warm caramel or cream tones can really add richness for the season.  You don’t want to do anything too drastic leading up to a sale, but if you can use some subtle color to add nuance, your walls can benefit.

Light it up.

Fall showings often occur after the sun has gone down, so it’s up to you to add light to the home. Let in as much natural light as you can while it’s available, and add accent lamps where you can.

Invite your guests.

Its probably getting chilly outside.  Create a vision of warmth and comfort by using throws and blankets to decorate the seating in the room.

Disney does it, so should you.

When you walk down Main Street in Disney World, your sense of smell is bombarded with scents of candy and sweets.  Use subtle accents of the season, some cinnamon and apples, to create an atmosphere that matches the outdoors with the indoors.

If you have a fireplace, get it going.

What better time to showcase one of your home’s most endearing accents?  Make the fireplace the focal point of the room and use artwork and accessories to draw attention to it.
