6 Tips for Staging Your Home for Fall Showings
Less is more – All your fall decorations mean so much to you and your family but make sure you use a discerning eye when displaying your family’s favorite pumpkins. You don’t want to clutter your home with decorations that could distract possible buyers.
Lighting – Here in the Puyallup area our days get very short. This means that your home can appear dark very easily. Make sure that you open your blinds and make sure all your lamps are on before you have a showing. If you notice a dark corner it would be a good idea to get a new lamp for that space.
Make your home feel comfortable – It’s getting cold outside! Make your home is cozy and appealing for your potential buyer. Add a comfy blanket and some pillows to your couch and you will be surprised at how much cozier it feels.
Scents of the Season – There are many scents you can choose from, but in the fall the smell of apples and cinnamon are king. Look for a scented candle or other room fragrance in a fall scent to make your home smell inviting from the beginning.
The Fireplace – Everyone can imagine themselves with their friends and family sitting around the fireplace. Highlight yours! Make it the focal point of the room by arranging your furniture or drawing attention to the mantel with art or accessories.
Curb Appeal – Don’t lose your buyers at the curb! Make sure you are keeping up with your yard and home. Your yard can look very messy with all the leaves that get blown into the yard. Make sure your fall maintenance projects are complete.
