The onset of fall doesn’t just mean a return to routine and cooler weather, it’s also when the real estate market starts picking up again.

Fall is always a good time to put a property on the market. But if you’re planning to put up a “for sale” sign in the coming weeks or months, we strongly recommend you start preparing now. In fact, a carefully thought out and well-planned sale will maximize success. Every homeowner wants to show their property in the best possible light and highlight its distinctive assets to attract buyers. Therefore, checking some items off your to-do list in September will pay off when it comes time to list your home.

Putting your best face forward

Grey weather and rainy days are just around the corner, so take advantage of the first fine days of fall to take pictures of the exterior of your home and your property. In fact, buyers will appreciate the opportunity to admire the leaves on the trees and your flowerbeds and gardens. And photos of your pool are sure to look enticing when snowstorm season rolls around.

Worthwhile renovations

Fall is also a good time to do renovations or repairs before winter. That is why, don’t let repairing your balcony, painting your living room, or adjusting your gutters wait any longer. Furthermore, buyers notice a well-maintained property.

An attractive interior

In order to show off your interior spaces and the architectural details that set your property apart, start decluttering your home now. Over the years we all accumulate more and more stuff. In fact, sorting through your belongings or putting things in storage beforehand will make the task of depersonalizing your home easier when putting it on the market.

A valuable ally

Having proper guidance during the selling process makes a huge difference. That is why you need to choose a partner who will remain objective and represent your interests effectively. Start meeting with real estate brokers today to find someone you can trust and who will be able to find the right price point for your property. This partnership is key to a successful real estate transaction.

Overall, these tips will go a long way to giving you peace of mind when the time comes and maximizing your chances for a highly effective listing.

Happy fall and happy selling!
