3 Ways to Sell Your Home this Fall!

There’s something about the drop in temperature and clear, crisp days of the Arizona autumn that makes outdoor activities just that much more enjoyable. Fall is also a wonderful time to sell your home. In fact, fall is the second most popular time to sell homes. Maybe it’s the reinvigorating cooler temperatures of football season or the awesome local events, but buyers seem just that more motivated to close around this time. So if you’re listing your home this season, here are 3 ways to sell your home this fall.

Move-in Ready: When potential buyers are looking to purchase a home this time of year, they typically want to be in their new home before the holidays. Making your home move-in ready helps make that transition just that much easier for your buyer, and can help set you apart from the competition. Taking care of repairs so buyers don’t have to makes a great first impression, so be sure to highlight the upgrades and improvements.

Staging Success: Whether you’ve got a designers eye or hire a professional, the process of staging a home has repeatedly proven to help sellers receive offers more frequently and faster than an un-staged home. Because buyers want to visualize themselves and their possessions in your home, staging help makes that easier for them to do. Clearing clutter, keeping windows clean and bright to let in the natural light, and emphasizing the positives your home offers can help sell your home this fall faster than you expect. Don’t be afraid to play with the décor of the season and add some cozy, tasteful accents and colors to help buyers feel a more warm welcome in your space.

Up your Curb Appeal: We all know the Arizona monsoons from summer can do a number on our exteriors leaving behind filthy windows, dust, dirt, debris, and dead plants. Seeing how this doesn’t exactly scream “warm and inviting” it’s in your best interest to make sure the outside of your home looks just as clean and inviting as the inside. Power wash those windows ‘til they shine, rid your landscape of unsightly summer weeds, and make sure you have no burnt out exterior bulbs. The goal is to not only make your home look inviting, but to also help sell it online. A clean home brimming with charming fall curb appeal will take much better listing photos than one without. A clean welcome mat and a decorative autumn themed wreath on the door can do wonders!
