Make a Buyer Fall In Love With Your Home in the Fall Months

Welcome to your go-to source for all things  real estate  in beautiful San Diego. Grab a cup of coffee, or your favorite local beverage, and let’s chat about something special – selling your home during the  fall season in San Diego.

Before we dive into these invaluable tips, a quick favor to ask: if you know someone pondering the idea of selling their home, kindly give them a nudge by sharing this blog with them. I’m going  to reveal the secrets that will have potential buyers “falling” in love with your  home.

Focus on Fall Scents

Fall in San Diego is truly magical, and the scents of the season are part of that charm. While we want to create an inviting ambiance, we also aim to avoid overwhelming your potential buyers with artificial air fresheners (you know the ones I’m talking about). 

Invest in high-quality fall candles. Bath & Body Works offers a wide array of scents that can infuse your home with delightful fragrances. Additionally, why not indulge in some baking? Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies or a pumpkin pie can fill your home with an inviting scent that’s uniquely yours. And if you’re feeling extra crafty, consider crafting a homemade potpourri on your stove with some cinnamon and cloves.

Pro tip: Stick to one scent per showing or open house to avoid overwhelming visitors and give them a headache. With the delightful scents of San Diego, you can’t go wrong!


Embracing Cozy Decor for San Diego Fall:

Now, let’s chat about decorating your  home for the fall season. If you’re listing your  home during the fall, you might be tempted to go all out on Halloween decor. However, keep in mind that potential buyers may struggle to see past the spooky decorations. Instead,  plan on going for a warm, cozy vibes that capture the essence of San Diego’s inviting autumn.

All you need to do is get your hands on some beautiful pumpkins in different colors, such as white, orange, and green. You can also incorporate gourds, corn stalks, and colorful mums. Check out your local home improvement and gardening stores are to find these fall gems.

Go for Live-able vs Lived in:

To help buyers envision themselves living in your  home, it’s crucial to strike a balance between a “lived-in” atmosphere and a well-kept space. Here in San Diego, we’re fortunate to have year-round activities, and these can be used to our advantage.

Consider temporarily removing family photos and gallery walls, but don’t go overboard. We’re aiming for that perfect balance. Leave a cozy throw on the couch, a book on the coffee table, and a candle burning in the kitchen. And since we’re in San Diego, selling in the fall often coincides with football season. If you have showings during a game, feel free to turn on the TV and let the game set the mood.
