4 Fall Curb Appeal Hacks to Attract Buyers

4 Fall Curb Appeal Hacks to Attract Buyers

Photo courtesy of homesteading.com The term “curb appeal” derives from real estate sales and home design. For years, buyers have formed their first impressions of homes while standing in the street or sitting inside the car, just beyond the curb. The initial drive-by would determine whether or not they would go for an actual showing. Curb appeal was always the single most important piece of the home sale puzzle and it’s still relevant today. If you’re planning to sell your Phoenix home this fall then here are  4 fall curb appeal hacks to attract buyers.

1.) Autumn Wreath: Add a burst of bold fall color to your front door with a beautiful floral wreath. The traditional autumn foliage colors or rich reds, rusts and burnished gold tones will give your entry a seasonal boost. 

2.) Pumpkin Spice: Nothing says autumn quite like pumpkins, dried gourds, winter squash, and bushels of fall-blooming flowers. Adding a pumpkin or a cluster of small colorful winter squash near your door or planting some fall-blooming flowers add a great eye-catching element to your curb appeal and helps potential buyers feel more at home. Just remember to keep fall décor simple because less is more.

3.) Spruce up your yard: While brilliant fall foliage can automatically make your home look more attractive for showings, that doesn't mean you can slack off on lawn maintenance during this season. Keep falling leaves at bay with frequent raking and patch up any brown spots in the grass.

4.) Fall lights: As the days get shorter, it becomes increasingly important to provide potential home buyers with a safe path to your front door. Use decorative lights to illuminate walkways, and install flood lights or lanterns to brighten up entrance areas.

Design Hacks Your For-Sale Home Needs to Sell Quickly

Design Hacks Your For-Sale Home Needs to Sell Quickly

It’s a sellers’ market which means if you’re ready to sell your Phoenix home, you may not be the only one on the block. If you want to stand out among the competition, these are the design hacks your for-sale home needs to sell quickly!

Welcoming Exterior: First impressions are lasting and your home’s exterior makes the first impression to potential buyers. Make a good first impression by making sure your lawns are clean of weeds, debris, and any visually unappealing clutter. Colorful desert blooms and outdoor lighting near the entry way also help emit a welcome home exterior that potential home buyers love.

Clutter Free Space: Home buyers want large, roomy spaces for their belongings. Removing clutter and allowing plenty of room to walk around furniture and easily maneuver around is a great way to help sell your home. Clean windows with open window coverings that let in natural sunlight help spaces seem lighter, brighter and open. Also, placing a few strategically placed decorative mirrors helps further make rooms seem more spacious.

Revamped Kitchen and Bath: Kitchens and bathrooms are often the first thing buyers gravitate to. Give your cabinetry a set of new hardware and repair any cracks or broken hinges. Make your flooring stand out by cleaning and resealing your tile or refinishing your wood floors. Cleaning or upgrading your countertops really helps make them stand out. Some home sellers even choose to upgrade the bathroom fixtures or kitchen appliances to give their kitchen and bath an extra kick.
