Summer is traditionally thought of as the best time to buy and sell a home.  But, just because the cold weather is approaching and  people are getting cozy by their fires, doesn’t mean there aren’t sneaky advantages to going against the grain to sell your home. Here are some reasons to consider fall as the new selling season!

People Move All the Time
Just because the most popular time of the year to move is in spring  and summer, does not mean it’s the only time to sell. There are countless reasons why people move and they can spring up anytime of the  year – Mom or Dad gets a new job, families move to be closer to relatives or Grandpa retires. The demand for houses is there.  Buyers are  ready, willing and able to purchase this autumn season!  If you’re a  seller, get ready for those fall buyers.

Buyers are Looking for Deals
The warmer months are more popular to purchase a home, but there are surprise discounts and perks that have homebuyers searching in other seasons too.  As a seller, be aware of the benefits buyers will find if  they wait until the fall. There are year-end tax breaks, cheaper moving  prices and quicker transactions. Buyers want to be in their new homes  for the holidays, that means quicker and simpler closings – huge  incentives can entice buyers to purchase a home that is listed in the  fall.

No Need to Compete
It’s a myth that no one wants to sell or buy in the fall, so your competition steps out of the game. Take advantage of a less crowded housing market and set the price confidently.  Housing inventory is  leaning towards a sellers-market, so get out there and sell! Prepare the home to be the ultimate fall oasis: pumpkins everywhere, curb appeal at an all-time high and stage the inside like you work for HGTV.  Buyers will be impressed, sellers will rejoice – that’s a score in the fall season.
