Stage Your Home To Sell This Fall!

Fall has arrived in Maine...and it is beautiful! 

Why not take advantage of the beauty of the season
to improve your chances of selling for top dollar this fall? 
Mainers love the comfortable, colorful look and feel of fall. 
When they walk into your staged home and get that warm, comfortable feeling...
they might fall in love and decide they want to move in! 

Isn't the goal to make you home appealing to buyers
so they will want to live there? 

Here are a few ideas to stage your home to sell this fall!

1.  Welcome Home
First impressions are important so make sure your home looks nice from the road.  It might be tempting to skip the yard work, but making sure the lawn is mowed and leaves raked makes your home look cared for.  Consider adding some color to make your home more appealing with some seasonal flowers, pumpkins, hay bales or other seasonal items.  Just make sure not to block the doors or walkways.  Check out our Fall Front Porch board on Pinterest for some great ideas! 

2.  Harvest Table
The kitchen island or dining room table is a great place to add some fall flair.  First... declutter your countertops, island, and table.  You want the buyers to see what your home has to offer and not be checking out your toaster oven and dirty dishes.  Create a fall arrangement or centerpiece just to add a little interest and enhance all your kitchen and dining area has to offer.  Mini pumpkins, gourds, pinecones, fall scented candles...there are so many options.  It doesn't need to be extravagant...simple is great!  

3.  Comfy and Cozy
In the living room adding a throw, pillows or sprucing up your mantle can make a big difference in the mood of the room.  Buyers should feel at home.  Instead of making the room too personal, try making it look comfortable.  Make the buyer feel like they could just move right in! 

4. Smells like Fall
Warm apple cider, pumpkin pie, cinnamon rolls...don't you love the smells of fall?  Your buyers probably do also.  Try baking a pie, warming some cider, or lighting a scented candle before your showings.  Just don't go overboard.  You don't want your home to smell like a candle shop...just a hint of one of the wonderful scents of fall can help make things homier.
