Fall yards can present some challenges, bare trees, brown lawns, and annuals that are past their prime. Start by clearing out your landscaping; remove any annuals that are no longer appealing, trim back any overgrown foliage, pull weeds, and add new mulch so that your landscaping looks tidy.
Keep on top of the Fall leaves, raking them out of the lawn and sweeping them off your driveway and sidewalks.
Overcome the dreary impression of overcast days and Fall's early nights by decorating for the season. Add pops of colour and texture to your outdoor spaces by adding pots of Mums, Asters, Heuchera or Winter Pansies. Adding pumpkins, wreaths, and other autumn decor to your front porch or yard can make your home look inviting and festive.
Buyers are looking to buy homes that are move-in ready, so take care of improvements and repairs now. Home buyers are less interested in working on a home in the fall than in springtime. If the home needs new carpet, have the carpet installed. If you need to paint rooms, hire a local painter or paint the rooms yourself. When potential buyers view your home, you want them to imagine themselves moving in and relaxing. The same thing can be said for repairs. If the home needs minor repairs, make the repairs yourself or hire a professional. Note, that hiring a professional is much less expensive than an offer from a potential buyer who feels like he/she has tons of work to do.
By following these tips, you can make the most of your yard this fall and create a welcoming atmosphere for visitors.
