4 Reasons To List Your Home In The Fall
I’m sure you heard that summer is the peak selling season. But listing in the fall has its advantages, too! Here are 4 reasons to list your home this fall:
- Buyers who shop in the fall months are often more serious than spring and summer buyers. Many spring and summer buyers will buy if they can close before the school year starts, but the motivated fall buyers are usually more immediate, like a job relocation or a changing family. This means deals are more likely to close and you’re less likely to be hassled by showing the home to unmotivated buyers.
- The latest Buyer Traffic Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that buyer demand remains very strong throughout the vast majority of the country. These buyers are ready, willing and able to purchase…and are in the market right now! In fact, more often than not, multiple buyers end up competing with each other to buy the same homes. Take advantage of the buyer activity currently in the market.
- It typically takes one to two months from signing a purchase agreement to closing, so sellers wishing to sell their home before the calendar year ends need to consider listing in October. This is particularly helpful if you’ve already purchased a home and want to finish the year with a level balance sheet.
- Boost your home’s appeal by making it feel like a cozy home. Tasteful fall décor like wreaths, pumpkins and festive centerpieces can help buyers picture their families living in your home.
