Your front yard is one of the first things buyers will notice when they pull up to your home so rake up the leaves, cut the grass and hide any excess clutter.

Perfect Porch
A nice clean porch with some comfortable chairs and a few fall planters will set an inviting, tranquil tone for potential buyers as they enter your home.

Lighten Up
Now that the days are getting shorter, it’s important to take advantage of your home’s natural light during the day and use soft, ambient lighting to help brighten things up at night.

Cozy Care
The fall season is all about feeling cozy, so add a few accent pillows and comfy throw blankets to give your home that warm, inviting vibe that’ll make buyers feel at home.

Make Scents
The nose knows what a comfy cozy home smells like, so set the tone with a few scented candles or simmer a pot of apple cider on the stove with a stick of cinnamon.

Fire It Up
A fireplace instantly creates a warm and cozy atmosphere so if you have one, light it up and make it a focal point of the room by arranging your furniture around it.

The fall season is traditionally a very popular time of year for home sales in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. After all, it’s a beautiFALL time to go out house hunting!

A well-staged home is much more likely to make a great first impression that will capture the hearts of homebuyers and make them instantly FALL in love with your home.
