The Philadelphia area looks beautiful in the Fall. From the city’s beautiful brownstones to quaint suburban homes, Philly and the surrounding suburbs really sparkle when surrounded with some Fall foliage. And if you’ve got a home for sale this season, then you’re in luck- Because you can use Autumn to your advantage! With a few simple tweaks and changes, you can boost your curb appeal and get your home sold this Fall. Here’s a few expert Philadelphia real estate tips for Autumn:
- When it Comes to Flowers, Think Fall: Certain flowers like chrysanthemums and marigolds look great in the fall, and a few potted plants near your front steps or sidewalk can draw attention to your home, and get potential home buyers in the door.
- Don’t Ignore the Front Door: Speaking of getting buyers in the door, a fresh paint job for your entryway (either the border or even the door itself) can breathe new life into your home’s curb appeal. Earthy tones are usually best in the Fall, but picking the right color will depend on your home. Assess your front walkway before heading to the hardware store for some paint.
- Keep Your Yard Neat: Everyone loves seeing the changing colors of the leaves, but when they’re taking over your front yard and covering your walkway, home buyers may feel less inclined to take a look inside. Be sure to keep your foliage in check, and if you’ve got bushes in your front yard, keep them neatly trimmed.
- Clean Your Windows: Has all that rain over the Summer taken a toll on your windows? Be sure to give them a good cleaning (inside and out) to remove any smudges. You may also want to consider adding window shutters (if they look right for your type of home).
