5 Fall Staging Tips

Cozy Fall Home

The autumn season is fast approaching, and selling during the fall can be a unique challenge. Don’t be intimidated by the fall! Employing the following tips can be a great way to bump up the appeal of a home. 

Utilize Lighting

As it gets darker earlier, it can be hard to come by that natural light when showcasing a home. To counteract this, use artificial lights from lamps and fixtures. Any light is better than none. Also, if you have a gas or electric fireplace, turn it on for showings and open houses to get that warm, cozy feeling.

Stage for the Season

Add seasonal accents, like fall-colored pillows, throws, and unscented candles, but limit holiday decorations. Don’t go overboard with the autumn decor. You want to ensure buyers can picture your home as a year-round property, so lose the Halloween decorations in exchange for a modest autumn leaf wreath on the front door.

Hibernate Comfortably

The fall chill will want homebuyers to feel cozy and comfortable inside a home. Embrace the weather using soft, furry throw pillows and soft, snuggly blankets to encourage the buyer to feel relaxed at home, ready to curl up in a comfy chair. 

Remember to Landscape

Autumn is a beautiful season when trees change color and shed their leaves. Though the season is worth countless photos, leaves on the ground can hurt a home’s chance of appealing to buyers. It can be challenging to tell where things are when the yard is covered in leaves. Make sure homeowners rake their lawns or hire a service to do it.

Offer festive treats. 

The cherry on top, seasonal goodies like hot cider on the stove or pumpkin cookies can make your home stand out during a fall open house.
