Summer is coming to an end, and autumn is just ahead. If you’re hoping to have your home on the market when the weather turns cooler, now is the time to get ready. That means mentally switching gears from flip flops, lemonade and laid-back beach style – to thoughts of sweaters, pumpkins and the coziness of a home that glows with warmth.
In addition to cleaning your home and addressing repairs, now’s also the time to plan for enhancing curb appeal and adding interior accents that welcome potential buyers. Have the chimney cleaned so your fireplace will be ready to crackle and pop. Dress up your spaces with throw pillows or other accents in fall colors. Buy a few autumn spice or cinnamon candles to set a fall mood. Plan your exterior look and how you might use chrysanthemums, gourds, and other seasonal items to create a great first impression.
