The Do’s And Don’ts Of Selling Your Home In The Fall

Use these tips to take advantage of selling your Hilton Head or Bluffton home this autumn.

DO list your home. Many sellers assume that once spring is over in the Lowcountry, so is the time to sell. However, the fall is a great time of year to sell since there are fewer sellers for you to compete with, improving your chances of making a sale.

DON’T overprice. Buyers are looking value! Historical data also says that buyers are likely to pay the asking price, but they will pass if you’re asking way above market value.

DO take advantage of the season. Use fall colors to improve your home’s curb appeal and interior atmosphere. Boil cinnamon for a fall aroma during home showings. Light a low but cozy fire to keep visiting buyers warm.

Fall Decor

DON’T overdo the holidays. Too many holiday-specific decorations may overwhelm buyers or hide your home’s assets.

DO play up your yard. Plant fall flowers, like chrysanthemums. Hang a seasonal wreath on your front door.

DON’T neglect yardwork. Fall leaves are beautiful, but if left unkempt may diminish your home’s appearance. Rake the leaves consistently. Clear out the gutters to avoid leaks and clogs.

DO make your home move-in ready. Buyers are eager to move in before winter, when the kids are out of school and the holidays are in full force. Prepare your home for a quick move to entice buyers with a deadline.
