Real Estate experts agree that spring is the busiest time of year for Fishers, IN home sales, but, fall is right behind at a close second. Fall is the perfect time to put your property on the market and the crisp fall weather will be here before we know it. If you are debating listing your house for sale this year, here is the #1 reason not to wait! The National Association of REALTORS’ (NAR) Chief Economist, Lawrence Yun recently commented on the inventory shortage:
“With demand holding firm and homes selling even faster than a year ago, the notable increase in closings in recent months took a dent out of what was available for sale.
Realtors are acknowledging, with increasing frequency lately, that buyers continue to be frustrated by the tense competition and lack of affordable homes for sale in their market.”
Don’t forget about the lawn. Keep your property well-maintained, even in the fall. Continue to mow the lawn as needed and rake up the excess leaves. Make sure the walkways are clear of any leaves as well. Don’t worry about needing to rake daily, colorful leaves look beautiful in the fall, even on your lawn. Just make sure it’s not overdone or cluttering your walkways.
Get seasonal. Add some fall-themed decorations and plants. Since not much is blooming in fall make sure to add some color in the way of seasonal decor and plants. A nice harvest wreath or some pumpkins and mums can go a long way for curb appeal.
Maximize light. Open all blinds and turn on all lights for every showing. You want each room to be as bright and sunny as possible. The less-intense sunlight of fall may make it necessary to upgrade your interior lights. Even a lamp here and there can help brighten up a room. To maximize the sunlight, make sure your windows are sparkling clean.
