There is No Such Thing as a Wrong Season to Sell! Just The Wrong Light Bulbs!
Some people say there is no wrong weather, only wrong clothes. I don’t know about this. I really don’t like the dark evenings or the dark mornings. I don’t like mud stained carpets either!
Autumn has always been a popular time to place your home on the market for sale. With the onset of the new season we’d like to present a few exciting tricks and treats (get it!?) that can be implemented to make your house attractive for buyers as the nights draw in.
I used to have friends who had a very neutrally decorated home but contrasting soft furnishings for Summer, Autumn and Winter. The grey and blue Rugs, Scatter Cushions and the throws would all be replaced by oranges and browns and although it seemed such a hassle, the effect was executed perfectly.
Don’t neglect your Gardens and your frontages either. Everyone can say “My Garden looks great in the Spring and Summer” but if in Autumn your Garden is clean and tidy, cut back, dead headed and presentable you don’t need pretty flowers. Just make it look cared for. Remember if the competition hasn’t bothered then you’re one step ahead already!
Think about your lighting. In the Summer, natural light is the order of the day. Properties with bright and airy rooms draw the most attention. Now, in the Autumn and Winter, we can do cosy and warm. Uplighters, Lamps and fireplaces are welcome but let’s make sure that your floorings, having suffered Summer long abuse with inside out living, have been steam cleaned or mopped ready for the new season.
We’ve got some real tricks up our sleeves for stunning dusk and night photography as well so don’t be put off! There are lots of buyers who need to be resettled for Christmas and the New Year and we’d be delighted to help you find them.
