Today I showed about 12 homes. The one thing I noticed about 9 of the 12 are the gutters were already full of leaves and debris. The exterior of the home looks so much better without leaves filled, sticks hanging over, and debris over flowing the gutters. This time of year is when we have to make sure curb appeal is at its best since we are coming out of our "spring" market into a "winter" market.
Other items to pay attention to - keep sidewalks, patios, and balconies clean of leaves, sticks and other debris such as acorns, etc.
Don't forget to power wash any algae off of the siding, sidewalks, patios, etc.
Also, if you can afford to get some fall flowers, that would be great too. We love walking up to homes that are decorated with some fall colored mums on the gorgeous front porch. Sometimes, the flowers gets the buyers to stop and really look at how lovely it is to have the front porch.
Keep your grass trimmed nicely too!
When the buyers first show up at a home, we want a great impression! Makes your home more desirable than the others in the neighborhood that are for sale!
