5 Ways to Get Your Home Ready for the Fall Market

It’s hard to believe that Fall is just around the corner…cooler temperatures, crisp mornings, football, school activities, and pumpkin everything. We absolutely love everything about this season. Fortunately for the DFW area, Fall is consistently a fantastic time to sell a home. Here are a few tips to get your house ready…

1.       Power Wash the Outside

Let’s face it…summer is hot and nobody wants to do yardwork or exterior maintenance. With the unusual amount of rain we’ve had, everything is caked with a fine layer of dust and dirt. By power-washing the eves, sidewalks, and everything in between, your house looks fresh and clean for the upcoming crisper weather.

 2.       Bring in the Fall Color

Fall is a great time for bring in fresh flowers, both in your flower pots and flowerbeds, and inside. Choose color that varies in heights and sizes and group them in 3s on your porch for maximum impact.

 3.       Spruce up your Entrance

Adding a fresh coat of paint on the front door, fresh new hardware, a stylish welcome mat, and a cute Fall wreath will instantly give your home a major facelift.

4.       Walk through your House like a Buyer (even if you aren’t selling)

If you were going to be buying a home, what would you think as you walk through your own home? Does it feel warm and inviting or run down and cluttered? Removing clutter is one of the quickest and easiest ways to instantly brighten up your home. Do you have any outdated paint colors? Fall is a great time to give your rooms a quick facelift. Our two go-to colors are SW Agreeable Grey or SW Accessible Beige.

 5.       Take a 10 second glance

Buyer’s make their first impressions within the first 10 seconds of entering a home. The same could be said for guests. Stand at your entry and glance around for 10 seconds. What do you see? What feelings are evoked?  Buyers will want to continue if the initial feeling is clean, fresh, and current.
