As the temperatures continue to drop and we prepare to transition into the Fall season, many of us have more than home staging ideas on our minds. But if you're trying to sell a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you can't afford to NOT think about staging for the Fall season. that's why this week, the Fran Campbell Team is providing you with 8 easy-breezy ways to stage your home for the fall season that'll have buyers FALLing in love with your home!

1. Maintain your lawn.
Soon enough, leaves will be making a mess on your lawn, so rake them frequently while on the market. Also, now is the time to repair any brown spots in your lawn and fertilize it. It's still important to continue watering your lawn to prevent the grass from drying out, but you won't need to do this as often now that cooler temperatures are here. You should schedule for your irrigation system to be winterized now though so it doesn't get forgotten and missed.

2. Clean gutters and downspouts.
This time of year, trees are beginning to shed their leaves and soon will clog up your gutters. Because moisture can turn to ice during the fall and winter, you want to make sure any water is easily being removed from your home’s structure. Whether you do it yourself, or have a professional do it for you, make sure your gutters remain clear of any debris that could cause blockage and potentially cause water damage to your home.

3. Add seasonal plants.
Change out your plant containers and pots around your home to show off hardier plants that will flourish this time of year. Try colorful mums, goldenrods, burning bush or aster to show off a lively space.

4. Create a welcoming front porch.
With a new season comes a new look. Add a new welcome mat and a few seasonal plants and pumpkins. Hang a wreath on the door that embraces fall foliage, so it can be used through the Thanksgiving holiday. Add a festive seating area if you have the space. Put out colorful, fall-inspired pillows and a throw blanket when showing to create a feel of comfort and coziness.

5. Light up the interior.
With shorter days on the way you may need to add more lighting inside your home to really highlight the space during showings. Make sure to turn on all the lights when showing your home. If you have your lights on a timer, make sure to adjust accordingly for the time change to ensure your home is well lit and welcoming for those evening showings.

6. Change up decor.
Say goodbye to summer by adding a few cozy autumnal touches around your house. Replace lighter colored summery accessories with warmer colors that warms up your home. Pumpkins, owls or birds, leaves and other natural elements can be used in your decor to remind you of the fall season and harvest time.

7. Focus on the fireplace.
During this time of year the fireplace will become the center of attention. Make sure to check the fireplace and chimney are working properly. Create a seating area around the fireplace, bring in wood and set up a fall scene on your mantel.

8. Find the perfect temperature.
Check your heater, schedule your semi-annual heating and HVAC maintenance and prepare to transfer from the air conditioning to heat. With the temperatures fluctuating regularly this time of year, it's important to keep track of the upcoming weather and expected temperatures so you can heat or cool your home accordingly to keep it comfortable. If your home is too hot or too cold, a buyer may become distracted by that and miss out on all that your home has to offer.
