Style your home for a glowing autumn sale

While spring and summer might hold the traditional crown for real estate sales, autumn offers a unique opportunity to showcase your property in a captivating light. Nature’s transformation, adorned with fiery foliage and crisp air, sets the stage to highlight your home’s inherent warmth and comfort. Here’s how to strategically leverage autumnal elements to attract potential buyers.

The benefits of selling your home in autumn

Here are just some of the benefits of selling property in autumn:

1. Buyer motivation is high as we progress toward the end of the financial year, and buyers often make faster decisions to take advantage of government incentives. Also, those looking now tend to be serious and ready to make a confident decision.

2. Demand outweighs supply. Fewer houses for sale increases competition between buyers, which typically leads to a good sale price.

3. More pleasant weather means not sweating through auctions and open homes.

4. Curb appeal is automatically enhanced thanks to beautiful foliage.

Tips for an autumn home sale

These four tips will help your home stand out from the crowd.

1. Focus on curb appeal

Sydney’s iconic street trees transform into a breathtaking display of fiery reds, oranges and yellows in autumn, which is good and bad. While beautiful foliage can charm prospective buyers, lots of leaves can also make a yard look like too much work. So keep a rake handy and focus on making the best first impression:

  • High-pressure hose your entry path and driveway.
  • Remove leaves from gutters.
  • Maintain all gardens from top to bottom. Rake the leaves, weed the garden beds and mow the lawn. It’s also beneficial to remove dead plants and replace them with autumnal plants and flowers like marigolds, violas, and pansies. Adding window boxes to apartments or porch pot plants blooming with these flowers will create a great first impression.
  • Clean all windows and doors.

2. Welcome the outdoors in

Bring those warm, earthy autumnal hues inside. Think burnt orange, golden yellow, deep green and light brown cushions or decorative blankets in the living room.

Layering textured throws and soft blankets over furniture immediately inject warmth and invite potential buyers to envision themselves curled up by the fire with a good book. Adairs has a chunky knit throw, among other styles, that will look great.

You can also set your dining table with autumn-themed tableware and a bowl of seasonal fruits to highlight your home’s entertainment possibilities. Check out the range at Pillow Talk. The key is creating a cosy, inviting space that doesn’t feel cluttered.

3. Lighten up the mood

As the days shorten, ensure your home is well-lit and ventilated. Maximise natural light by keeping windows sparkling clean and free from heavy curtains. Strategically placed lamps with warm-toned bulbs cast a soft and inviting glow in the evenings.

Another way to add light is to fire up the fireplace during open houses. The warmth and flickering flames instantly create a welcoming ambience that tugs at the heartstrings of potential buyers.

4. Make your home a feast for the senses

Diffusing a seasonal scent throughout your home during open-for-inspections instantly creates a memorable experience. A warm and inviting aroma like cinnamon, sandalwood or clove will leave a positive impression on potential buyers.
