Fall is now upon us in Calgary, so if you’re looking to sell your home or are in the process of selling your home on the Calgary real estate market, there are some things you need to do. Here are some tips on how you can prepare your home for sale this fall.
Yard Cleanup & Maintenance
The fall brings some of the most beautiful changes to the atmosphere of the city and to the trees in your yard. Although they may look nice, they can also leave a big mess. Make sure you are raking your leaves as much as possible to ensure your yard looks clean. You may also want to trim any bushes that are near windows that could be blocking the potential buyers view.
Thoroughly clean the windows
Over the course of the summer dust or dirt may have accumulated on the windows, from the dry summer days and the wind. When people are looking at Calgary real estate listings they are going to notice these things, so make sure your windows are cleaned thoroughly on the inside and out. Let those potential buyers see the amazing views from your windows.
Like your windows, your chimney can accumulate dust over the summer from lack of use, and it can actually be quite dangerous if you start to use it without cleaning out debris. It may be a good idea to hire a professional to get in there and clean it out.
Setting the Mood
This one is important and can really help sway people looking at Calgary real estate prices and homes in the fall. Setting the mood for a dark dreary fall day can really help the viewers feel comfortable and happy when viewing your home. Get some wood on that fireplace, and light some scented candles with nice fall scents, to set the mood and make your home feel warm and inviting.
These are just a few things you can do when putting your home on the Calgary real estate market this fall. For more information on this or any information regarding Calgary real estate, contact Patrick Krause today!
