Fall colors and scents are glorious here in New Hampshire and Maine.  Embrace
them and use them to help showcase your condo or home to potential Portsmouth

Fall here in the Seacoast is just gorgeous, and these tips will help you
incorporate that beauty into your Portsmouth NH home to help
potential buyers see that beauty as well!

Some of these tips are common sense, and some add a really nice welcoming
feeling to potential buyers and their agents, and they all offer homeowners easy
things to think about doing if their home is for sale.

–   “Curb Appeal” – never forget to think about
those all-important ‘first impressions’.  With the gorgeous colors of fall
leaves, this can add to a home’s already existing appeal, however all those
leaves laying around on the ground certainly don’t.  Clean them up!!

“Celebrate the Season”
– this is one that I have to admit I wouldn’t have given much thought
to.  Embrace the fall and have fall decorating items–hang a nice

–   “Let the Light In” – oh how important
this one is!!  If you have heavy curtains or drapes, open them up and let the
sun shine in!!  Turn on lamps and make your home exude a warmth and welcome for

–  Your Fireplace” – if you have a fireplace, this
is a lovely time of year to show it off.  Place a log or two in the fireplace,
or if you have a gas fireplace, flick the switch and have a nice fire
burning/glowing to welcome potential homebuyers.  You can place a nice candle
holder in the fireplace that holds several candles.  What a great way to say
welcome to those looking at your home or condo!

–  “Scents of the Season” – the sense of smell is
the strongest sense to appeal to.  Most people are greatly enticed by the scents
of cinnamon and apples.  Bake a fresh apple pie and/or cinnamon cookies – what a
great way to welcome potential homebuyers!  Leave a plate of these fresh-baked
goodies with a note to have buyers enjoy a treat while viewing your home – a
very nice touch that they won’t forget.
