Roof Appeal

Many neighborhoods are lined with older, larger trees. While they look beautiful in the fall, this foliage also means your gutters are going to start filling up fast. A clean gutter can help secure that great first impression you’re going after. Gutter cleaning can be dangerous so make sure you proceed with caution or we can connect you with one of our preferred vendors to help you get the job done safely.

Fall Home Décor

Decorations are fun and can add a little character to your home for sale during the fall season. Pumpkins, squashes, and gourds are some inexpensive ways to decorate the entrance of your house and continue those amazing first impressions. Add some extra color with fun, fall-friendly flowers to complement your entryway.

A Warm Welcome

Once potential buyers step inside your house, you really want them to feel like they entered their next home. The fall weather is causing outside temperatures to drop, but that doesn’t mean it should feel chilly indoors. Double-check all of your windows for any drafts and the same goes for your furnace (if you haven’t already done so).

Bright Idea

The next indoor tip is all about lighting. A healthy amount of home showings happen during the evening hours and in the fall months, it starts getting darker outside at an earlier time. This makes it even more important to have good lighting throughout your house. If you notice any dim light bulbs make sure to replace them so you have a welcoming presentation for all visitors. It never hurts to turn on more lights or add extra lighting to help brighten your home’s environment.
