Autumn is the second best time to put your home on the market, after spring, but you can still sell your home for a good price. Have photos taken before the trees go bare, while your landscaping is still green and leafy. Buyers can see how lovely your home looks in other seasons. A photo of your home with bare trees and brown lawn is not very appealing. Keep up with the raking and yard care while your home is listed. Curb appeal still matters so plant seasonal colorful flowers and decorate with fall décor, like pumpkins or a wreath on the front door to make a great first impression. Make your home cozy. It is difficult to sell a cold, dark house. Keeping your home warm creates a good impression, as does light. Set the thermostat to a comfortable temperature and make sure the filter in your furnace is fresh. Make sure that your HVAC system and fireplace are clean and up to standard. Have lots of lighting inside and out with landscape lighting around the yard. And consider scenting your home with a warm fall scent like apple spice or pumpkin pie.
