Home Staging for Autumn

16 Nov 2022
Home staging is the process of preparing your property for sale. It involves making your home look its absolute best, encouraging viewers to place an offer on your property.

The days are slowly beginning to draw in and as autumn swings around, the fresh breeze blows in a new audience of buyers with an appetite for cosy and comfy living. The early sunsets and colourful leaves are a perfect backdrop for your home. It’s useful to know how to use the season to your advantage when prospective buyers come to visit. Here are some tips to help you secure a buyer this autumn…

Increase kerb appeal with an autumnal garden

For a great first impression, keep on top of those fallen leaves, twigs and wilted flowers as your garden should appear fresh and tidy. Utilise autumn’s warm, inviting colours with small trees and shrubs which complement the season. Rich red, auburn and yellow flowering plants such as Sedum, Chrysanthemum, Carthamus and Winter Pansies will add colour creating the perfect backdrop.

Let the light in

As the sun sets earlier, make use of both natural and indoor lighting. Create spacious, bright and airy rooms by eliminating those dark, dull corners. Use soft lighting to accentuate your décor making them more appealing, cosy and enticing. Throw open those curtains, make sure the windows are sparkling and let in the natural light.

Use seasonal accent colours

Entice buyers to move during this season with warm shades of autumn inspired colours, to create a warm and cosy setting. Throws, cushions and inexpensive home accessories in accent colours will engage buyers; you’re not only selling your home but a lifestyle.

Time to get cosy

During the autumnal months, buyers will be looking for a home to enjoy over the festive period where they can relax with their families around the TV or fireplace. As the air starts to cool, it’s important that prospective buyers enter a home that feels warm and comfortable, so they can easily envision living in your home and entertaining in the winter months.

Autumn treats

A home needs to appeal to all the senses, fresh coffee or freshly baked goods will have your home smelling amazing and your guests feeling welcomed. Nothing smells like autumn more than smoke from a fireplace. Make sure to clear your fireplace from dust and ash before any viewings and consider firing it up on cold days when people come to have a look around. A fire is a notable feature in any home and can certainly be a big selling point. Whether you have a modern fire or a vintage log burner, make sure it’s switched on and ready for guests.
