4 Reasons Why Fall is a Great Time to List Your Home for Sale

While spring is typically the hottest time for real estate, the fall season has its perks as well! With summer coming to an end, many people and their families are getting back into their routines with school and work. If you are thinking of selling your home this fall, please feel free to give me a ring – I’d be happy to answer any and all questions about real estate. Whether you are thinking of listing this fall, or are planning to list in the spring, I’m here for you!Here are four top reasons to list your home this fall:

  1. Close before the tax year ends. 6934101-autumn-landscapeIt 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.
  2. Buyers are more serious. 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 impetus for fall buyers is 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.
  3. More attention from agents. The busiest time of year for real estate professionals is spring. Sellers who list in spring have to compete for time with their agent, lenders and inspectors who juggles multiple clients during the peak spring and summer months. Selling in fall means your agent can devote their full attention to marketing and selling your home.
  4. Fall décor is cozy. 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 in your home.
