While the real estate market is definitely at a peak during the spring and summer, going against this trend and listing your home in the fall can have some great benefits. Now is a great time to sell a home. Here are three reasons why: 1. Buyers are more serious. Many have just been transferred here for work. Their new jobs are starting and they need to find a home. They aren’t going to be out looking for a month at a time. They’re going to be serious. 2. Some buyers have been looking all summer and still haven’t found anything. Your house might be the one that they are looking for, so don’t hesitate to get it listed!The fall is a great time to make a move up.3. There is a lot less competition in the fall. It's no secret that most homes are listed in the spring and summer. However, homes that are not sold by the end of the summer are often delisted or are turned into rental properties. Otherwise, they start to draw less interest because of the time they have spent on the market. If you list in the fall, you have the benefit of standing out, as well as facing less competition than during the "hotter" seasons. This opens the door for you to sell your home to these motivated fall buyers. In addition, we’ve had very high temperatures this summer and the grass has been struggling. Selling in the fall will allow you to spruce up your yard and have it look inviting. Curb appeal is important, and selling in the fall will help your curb appeal greatly. If you have any questions about why the fall is such an opportune time for you to sell or about the home selling process in general, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
