Autumn appeal for potential home buyers is adding a touch of flair to your staging décor. Warm scents, fall foliage hues, and inviting lighting accents provide elegant ways to ensure that a home leaves a lasting impression. Check out these three staging tips that will charm and delight buyers in a tastefully appropriate manner.

Come and knock on our door

Upping a property’s wow factor starts at the front doorway. Consider lining the steps with gourds of varying shapes and sizes. For a splash of color, incorporate an arrangement of potted chrysanthemums in bronze, yellow, burnt orange, and white. Spruce up the door itself by hanging a harvest wreath complete with vibrant foliage like leaves, myrtle, oat, wheat and berries.

Seasonal Scents

The smell of pumpkin spice and warm cinnamon apples are synonymous with autumn. These comforting and nostalgic scents make a house feel cozy and warm. Popular varieties include Yankee Candle’s Bay Leaf Wreath, Apple Spice, or Pumpkin Ginger Bark, all which make a space feel homier. Candles should be displayed in a fall arrangement by placing them in glass trifle bowl and laying them atop a bed of artificial leaves.

Let there be light

As the crisp autumn weather rolls in and daylight wanes, agents are presented with the challenge of brightening up homes during evening showings. To make lighting inviting for tours at dusk or at night, using soft tones is a must. Avoid fluorescent lights and use bulbs with gentler hues to create an ambient and familiar atmosphere.
