Fall is a beautiful time of year in Berks County, and you can use that to your advantage when you sell your home. Staging your home during this time of year will help create a warm, inviting place that will make buyers feel at home, and potentially sell your home faster. Here's a few tips you can use to stage your home this fall.

Curb Appeal

Of course, at any time of the year, it's important to have great curb appeal. During the fall, there's usually plenty of leaves to rake up, so make sure to stay on top of lawn maintenance. At least take care of the essentials - mowing, raking leaves, and trimming hedges.

Make sure to clean your home's exterior, especially if the weather has been rough. Make sure the siding, windows, and gutters are clean and clear.

On the porch, add a fresh doormat and a seasonal wreath on the door to make buyers feel welcome. If your porch is covered, add a small outdoor furniture set or bench. Add some potted seasonal flowers to make your porch stand out. Your home's exterior should be neat and attractive.

Inside Your Home

First things first - clean, clean, clean your interior. Go to each room and de-clutter and remove personal items. Make sure every room is staged.

You can add earth toned pillows and throws in the living room to create a warm fall atmosphere. Adding a bowl of seasonal fruits in the kitchen is also a nice touch. In the living room, you can add a decorative bowl or vase with pinecones, nuts, fall foliage, and dried decorations.

You can bring out your fireplace with a tall bunch of dark twigs or stick wrapped in twine on each side of the hearth. A vase of fall flowers on the dining room table or fireplace mantel will also be an inviting touch.

Pull your inspiration from the fall colors outside. After all, they're the best reference for color schemes.

If you apply these few tips, it will go a long way to making sure your home in Berks County is ready to sell.
