Fall curb appeal can make all the difference for your property, especially if you’re getting ready for your big sale in Nevada!
Add Some Color for Fall Curb Appeal
The typical fall time frame means there’s a need to make some color choices for your home. When you have some accent pieces to work with, colorful evergreen garland or pumpkins go a long way. Stick with natural colors when it comes to any exterior lights—-these reflect light, which adds a nice contrast to the overall color scheme. What can you do to give your home a fresh look? Filling in gaps and crevices is the easiest way to do this, and to add depth and dimension. Adding a new coat of paint or revamping your yard can provide fresh, new elements to help make your home feel new again. As the months progress and fall approaches, there’s a good chance you’ll have changes going on in your yard.
Turn up the Volume
One sure way to make your house look amazing is to add some lighting to your outside. Placing potted evergreens with bright, leafy foliage and large planters filled with bright flowers, or even some edibles like fruit, will really shine. These are the type of things that buyers are looking for! “We always recommend potted foliage, such as Evergreen, juniper, or a flowering bush, and planters filled with flowers,” says Kiernan Haddock, an estate agent with Las Vegas Sotheby’s International Realty. “And make sure to bring your most recognizable plants indoors, as that’s a great way to make them look alive. You can even put an arrangement in the center of your dining table. This will make your home look all the more live and lively.
Create a Fall-Inspired Front Porch
You don’t have to go far to put up a porch. Just consider a few focal points on your property. When it comes to curbs, a place to sit out is a common front porch feature. However, it doesn’t have to be too bulky. Design and buy a light wood or white rocking chair, or a small hammock. Add a pretty little umbrella that comes down over the seat. Want to make a statement with your front porch decor? A bench is a great centerpiece for your curb appeal. All you have to do is find the perfect bench for your space. It doesn’t have to be a complete bench, either. A cute wicker chair with one or two nice pillows can be a perfect combination for your curb appeal. Your guests can sit, relax, and enjoy the view in comfort.
Freshen Things Up With Flowers
Whether your house is on the side of the hill or on the side of the street, flowers brighten up your property and provide a focal point for people to look at.

Have Fun with Foliage
This is the perfect time to enjoy the beautiful scenery in the fall, so take advantage of every opportunity to get outside and enjoy it! You can paint any of your decks or patios with new bold colors, install lights, or add some creative pieces to the landscape to show off your fall decor. Make a photo album with your best shots, or write them down on a recipe card for inspiration. While it’s still warm, start getting some fall flowers to brighten your home! Fall blooms like tulips, roses, and azaleas make great decorations, and they can also be used in the kitchen, dining room, or living room for fun centerpieces. You can buy fresh flowers or get them from a florist, but make sure to use plenty of water when placing them in the soil.
