Fall can be a great time to sell a house, particularly if you have multiple deciduous trees or flowering shrubs that showcase their beauty in October and November. People are also thinking about the holidays and longing for a house to hold a nice holiday celebration in with the coming seasonal festivities. You don’t need to make huge changes to a home to give it a fall selling advantage, but a few little touches may go a long way. Remember that people generally form an impression of your home within the first ninety seconds of their arrival – that’s when they pull up, before they ever walk through the door. You want to convey an aura of charm, warmth, and joy. That can be pretty simple to do!
Three Ideas For Classic Fall Curbside Appeal
- a mustard yellow or brick red front door
- a garden flag that is fall-themed by the walkway
- a beautiful fall wreath with a spotlight on it at night
Brick red doors have always been in style, as they have signified “safe houses” in cultural acclaim for hundreds of years, and they are a perfect fit for fall leading into winter. However, don’t forget about the incredibly popular mustard yellow right now! This cheerful and bright hue brings to mind feelings of happiness and frolicking in sunshine and Autumn leaves. A yellow door can be a major head-turner and make your home stand out from other homes, too!
Garden flags are a nice, inexpensive touch that is classy, and endures well after Halloween. Choose something simple, such as a harvest or cornucopia scene that says “Welcome Fall”, depictions of harvest apples or pumpkins, and stay away from Halloween-like ghosts, witches, black cats, etc. This will give a welcome feeling of warmth as the potential buyer walks toward your door.
Finally, think about getting a beautiful fall wreath. It could be dried flowers, artificial flowers, or silk leaves – but make sure it is large enough to be noticeable and in predominantly fall shades (yellow, rust, red, gold, brown, orange) A gorgeous large bow in a fall shade will grab attention and look inviting. As an extra touch, you could put a spotlight on your door at night, so that your beautiful door and wreath can be seen no matter the time of day.
