While too many fall decorations will take focus off of your home and its best features, a few tasteful accents can create an inviting setting and make your home feel fresh. Try displaying vases of fall foliage or bowls of seasonal fruit throughout your home.

Warm Up Your WallsWarm Up Your Walls
No matter what time of year you decide to sell, a fresh coat of paint is a great way to revive your home's interiors. For the fall season, try painting your walls a rich shade of caramel or cream that's neutral yet warm and inviting. Add pops of color with accessories in deep reds and oranges.

No matter how beautiful and inviting your home's interior, buyers won't make it inside if the exterior isn't in good shape.
