Remember that it is always as important to stage the exterior of your home as it is the interior. A plus in the fall is that beautiful foliage will automatically enhance your exterior’s visual appeal.
You will need to do part too. Rake frequently to keep dead leaves to a minimum. Remember too that as trees shed their leaves, your home will be more exposed. Chipped paint or dirty siding will be even more noticeable, so pressure-wash your home and repaint if necessary. Be sure gutters and downspouts are clean so buyers will know you are diligent about maintaining your home.
Natural fall decorations on the front porch, such as pumpkins, gourds, and potted mums will enhance your curb appeal as well.
