Why Fall Can be the Perfect Season for Buying or Selling Real Estate

Benefits of Buying or Selling Real Estate During the Fall

Changing Leaves, Changing Market

While spring and summer are typically the busiest seasons for real estate, people are moving at all times of the year. Moving during the Fall season can actually work to the advantage of buyers and sellers!

Less Competition

During the fall season, buyers may find that there is less competition from other buyers for the same home. The families who were focused on getting into a new home before the school season leave the market, putting hopeful homeowners in a better position to have their offer accepted.

Buyers Mean Business

Buyers in the fall tend to be more serious. They could be tired from looking for a home all summer, or in a rush to move before the freezing weather. Buyers during this season will be less likely to waste any time. This is great news for people wishing to sell their home fast!

Serious Sellers

Not every home on the market is unsold inventory from summer. New construction goes on during the summer, so it’s possible that freshly built homes are just now ready to hit the market. Fall is also a time when people relocate for a job and are prepared to settle down.

You’ll Get the VIP Treatment

In the summer, moving companies, title companies, and other professionals you may work with during your transaction can get very busy and may not be able to give you top-notch service. During the fall, these professionals have more time available to focus on you!

Great Deals on Home Improvement Items

Tis’ the season of sales! Sellers can snag some great deals on items to make improvements to their homes before selling, and buyers can find discounts on new appliances or items to maintain their new residence.
