We often talk about spring and summer being the preferred real estate seasons, but what about fall? There’s often a strong wave of home buying activity at this time of year, and here are some reasons why.
Less competition. Were you unsuccessful in finding your dream home this summer? Competition often drops as soon as the leaves do — great news for those looking to buy.
Better prices. Sellers who didn’t manage to complete a sale during the hot summer market may be more open to negotiation now, with an eye to making a move before the snow blows in.
An easier move. Speaking of snow, if the thought of dragging furniture and boxes to and from a moving truck and up slippery steps in the dead of winter doesn’t appeal to you, then you’ll want to get moving on your moving plans right now!
The ability to be “home for the holidays”. Just as families eager to start the new school year in the school district of their choice fuel many summer sales, autumn sales can be driven by the desire to settle in for the holidays, and to start the new year in a new home.
More attention to your needs. With their busiest season behind them, your real estate team – from your lender to your real estate sales representative to your home stager, real estate lawyer and movers – will most likely have more time to spend with you to make sure all of your questions are answered, and your needs fully attended to.
