Close a deal before the holidays with these seasonal staging, pricing and negotiating tips

#1: Focus on curb appeal. Selling a home during the fall certainly comes with one advantage: The season’s beautiful foliage can automatically make your home more attractive for showings. However, you still need to do your part to keep your home looking its best. Start by sprucing up your lawn: Keep falling leaves at bay with frequent raking and patch up any brown spots in the grass.

As the trees shed their leaves, your home becomes more and more exposed, making its exterior appearance especially important. Chipped paint or dirty siding will be extra noticeable, so pressure-wash your home and repaint before showings if needed. Be sure to take care of fall-specific maintenance projects — like cleaning your gutters and downspouts — to show buyers that you’re serious about your home’s upkeep.

As a finishing touch, a few subtle fall decorations — like pumpkins, tri-colored corn or a wreath on the door — can give your home an inviting look.
