September 23rd is the official start to the Autumn Season. Living at the Jersey Shore provides you with a variety of fall festivals, farmers markets and everything apple cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Lawns and front porches are decorated with colorful mums, bales of hay as porch posts are given a rustic look with burlap wrapped c0rn-stalks. The seasonal scene backdrops create valuable curb-appeal when marketing your home in the Fall. Consider curb-appeal as the initial impression you make on a potential buyer. How do you want them to react when they park in front of your home? A well-manicured and tastefully decorated landscape will get the prospective buyer from the driveway to the doorbell. Additional exterior elements contributing to curb appeal include the physical condition of the roof, siding, paint, pathways and the front door. Before the harvest-inspired decorating, a little touch-up paint and power-washing goes a long way. Once your home is ready for its big debut, it’s time to invest in quality photos to properly showcase the new and improved look.
