Set those outside lights – darker evenings mean you need to turn on your outdoor lights or amend the time they come on. If you are selling your home, it is important that you do this so that potential buyers can see your home when viewing.
Create a cosy feeling - keep your house warm by shutting the windows, investing in some thick curtains and keeping the heating on when you are out and have viewings booked in.
Put outdoor furniture away - we hate to say it but you’re probably not going to need that BBQ and garden furniture for a while now, so store it somewhere safe and secure, this will prevent weather damage and help to declutter.
Check for drafts - check your windows and doors for any drafts and if there are any get these sorted before the colder, windier weather really kicks in!
Clear debris - keep on top of falling leaves and clear the debris from paths and gutters, this is especially important if you’re selling your home as you don’t want potential buyers slipping over.
Get cooking – autumn offers the perfect opportunity for some autumnal cooking, whip up some bread or chilli to really make your house smell amazing.
Think about your viewings - As it gets darker earlier, if you have any dark corners in your home consider some extra temporary lighting to brighten things up.
Thinking of buying or selling? - if you've been thinking of moving, now is the time to start looking if you would ideally like to be moved before Christmas. Start your search for a property here or book a free valuation.
