The fall selling seasons is just about here. Are you ready to capitalize on the beautiful colors, crisp weather, and seasonal elements of fall and get more fall sales before the holidays come around? Hit the ground running for fall sales and get ready for shorter days by doing these four things right now:

Stock Up on Seasonal Staging

Now is when you can pick up seasonal staging pieces like wreaths, welcome mats, door signs, and other seasonal items for very cheap. Home décor stores, home improvement stores, and the fabric and craft stores are having massive sales on seasonal décor items to get ready for the fall. Stock up on seasonal items now so that you will have them for open houses and to use as photo props when you are getting photos taken of your listings.

Get A Lawn Care Company on Standby

Autumn showings mean that you might need to have a yard raked and autumn leaves disposed of on very short notice. Make sure that you have a very reliable lawn care company or handyman service on standby so that you can get leaves raked up in a yard before an open house or before a showing. Autumn leaves are beautiful and having a few scattered around will add to the curb appeal of a home but having a lot of leaves in the yard or big piles of leaves at the curb is off-putting to buyers. You can save yourself a lot of time and hassle by making sure that you have a good lawn care service ready to go whenever you need a last-minute cleanup of a property before a showing.

Buy More Lighting

The days are going to be getting shorter and the dark will come to a lot faster now that fall is just about here. Since many buyers will want to look at homes after work in the evenings you should make sure that you have plenty of indoor and outdoor lighting that you can use for staging. Outdoor floodlights, fairy lights, and outdoor solar powered lights are great to make the outside of the home more inviting in the autumn dusk. But inside you should add extra lighting and use bright bulbs to make the home look as cheerful and bright as possible. Buyer will be much more likely to develop an interest in a home that looks bright and inviting rather than one that looks gloomy or dark.

Think Cozy

As the temperatures drop people will be thinking about cozy surroundings. So, when you are staging homes add lots of pillows and textured blankets. Heavy drapes and other fabric accessories will make rooms feel warmer and cozier to buyers.
