According to property experts, there are a number of steps you can take to prepare your home for sale during the autumn months.

Although spring is a popular time for people to consider buying and selling their homes, there are plenty of people out looking for a new home during the remainder of the year, and autumn has an appeal to many house buyers. September can be a good month to sell your home, as the weather is usually still mild enough to show off the garden and encourage house buyers to look at properties.

It is never too early to start thinking about preparing your home to be sold, even though the autumn months may seem to be a way away.

Before putting your house on the market, take some time to deep clean your home, including the carpets so that it smells fresh. Get rid of any clutter that you have collected through the years, especially in outbuildings as this prevents buyers from seeing the full potential of a space.

You can create an autumn feel by decorating in autumn colours, using earth tones like beige, red, gold and brown. Autumn weather can be unpredictable, so make sure that your home is comfortable by adjusting the heating to suit the weather conditions.

Spend some time in the garden tidying the plants and hedges so that everything looks presentable. As flowers die down, trim them back or dead head plants to make them look more appealing. Use some bright garden paint to make the best features stand out.
