Marietta Real Estate: Fall Fixes to Sell Your Home

fall home staging to sellAre you thinking of listing your home for sale in Marietta, Georgia? Continued low inventory makes this a great time to sell, and with a few strategic improvements, you can set your home apart from the rest. Read on for some tips on staging and selling Marietta real estate.

Reset your landscaping for fall

As the season transitions from summer to fall, it’s time to take a good, long look at your home from the street and identify any problems with the landscaping. As the lush foliage of summer gives way to falling leaves, your yard can start to look a bit disheveled. It’s important to keep the lawn, shrubs, trees, and other plantings well-groomed and tidy, but you don’t want your home to look too sparse, either. Adding a few plantings here and there will add color and visual interest to your yard throughout the fall. Pansies, certain lilies, and ornamental greens can work well during the fall, and chrysanthemums can be found cheaply even at your local grocery store. Check out this list to identify the fall plants that will work best in your yard.

Make exterior repairs

With less foliage obscuring your home and driveway in the fall, every flaw becomes infinitely more noticeable. This is a good time to replace gutters, install landscape/security lighting, patch cracks in your driveway, and ensure the walkway to your front door is in good condition. It’s also important to have your entry looking its best. Consider replacing the front door, adding a new light fixture, and upgrading the door hardware.
