We’ve spent our entire lives believing that the best time to sell a house is in the Spring. Many people believe that putting a home up for sale in the Fall might not seem logical.
But, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. There are great reasons to sell in the Fall!
If you count yourself among the homeowners considering listing your home before the end of the year, I’m here to provide you with some key reasons to move ahead with your plans.
Three Great Reasons To Sell Your Home This Fall
- Less competition – there are fewer homes for sale in the Fall than there are during the spring and summer months.
- Your house looks great! – Fall colours make for great curb appeal.
- Buyers are acting quickly – those who didn’t buy in the summer are eager to be settled into a new home before the holidays/end of the year.
Something else to think about
The Fall Housing Market
Fall is usually a time when more serious buyers come out of the woodwork. Having skipped the spring and summer markets, fall buyers traditionally are looking to make an offer and take possession of a home before the holidays hit. Homebuyers are even less casual during this season vs. the spring season when it comes to shopping around.
Given the seriousness of buyer motivations, it’s important to make first impressions count in the home. This means a clean, well-kept environment showcasing the best features of the property.
