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.

Let In the Light

The days get shorter during the fall season, so adequate lighting is essential if you want to highlight your home's best features. Let in as much natural light as possible by opening your blinds, and place plenty of lamps throughout your home for additional illumination.

As the weather cools down, a warm and cozy atmosphere will encourage potential homebuyers to stick around during showings, giving them more time to admire your home. Accentuate your sofas and chairs with throw pillows and plush throws.

Nothing says fall like the pleasing aromas of apples and cinnamon. Before showing your home, burn a cinnamon-scented candle or simmer a pot of apple cider on the stove with a stick of cinnamon thrown in. If you opt for cider, leave it in a thermos with cups for buyers to enjoy.

Layering your bed with sumptuous, silky fabrics will further enhance your home's comfort -- and these luxurious details don't have to break the bank. Discount stores offer plenty of inexpensive bedding options that look high-end. You can also display plush towels in the bathroom or drape a silky table cloth over your dining room table.
Dont Forget Curb Appeal

 

Don’t Forget Curb Appeal

No matter how beautiful and inviting your home's interior, buyers won't make it inside if the exterior isn't in good shape. During the fall season, spruce up your lawn by raking up leaves and patching up brown spots in the grass. Take care of fall-specific maintenance projects, such as cleaning your gutters and downspouts, and pressure wash your siding to keep your home's exterior looking its best
