Fall can actually be the most beneficial season to sell your home, despite popular belief. Many people think that spring is the best season to sell a home. Whether that idea persists because the weather is cheery, or because selling a home might be the ultimate form of “Spring cleaning,” this belief has greatly contributed to the over-crowding of the real estate market in Spring.
Therefore, there is a huge advantage to home-sellers looking to sell their home in Fall. With fewer homes listed on the real estate market in Fall, buyers can’t afford to be quite as picky when they’re shopping for a home. To Fall home-sellers benefit, the minor repairs that may have caused a buyer to move on during the Spring, can be overlooked in the Fall. Selling in what some may call the real estate “off-season” may actually be to your advantage. So, now is the time to prep your home for sale – book your professional home staging and drop the “For Sale” sign in the yard. Here’s why Fall is actually the best time to sell your home:
In addition to the weather outside (who wants to load up a moving truck in the winter?), the school calendar significantly dictates when homes are bought and sold. For families already in your neighborhood, who won’t be changing schools or districts, fall is the perfect time to re-root nearby. Without the distractions of summer, like family vacation plans, parents can get settled in their new home just in time before the winter holidays and visiting extended family. Fall can be the ideal time to sell your home to local buyers.
Home-buyers looking to relocate in the fall are usually doing so under some pressure. Typically, they are facing a situation that is forcing them to relocate – meaning that they want to do so quickly and smoothly. Believe me that when it comes to fall real estate, these are serious buyers, not just lookie-loos. Fall is the best time to sell your home because you are sure to find serious buyers looking to settle into their new perfect home.
I absolutely love fall. Watching the leaves turn into their fall colors can be beautiful. Fall has its own appealing color palette and array of seasonal textures that can serve to make your home even more attractive for potential buyers. When you add seasonal charm to your professional home staging program, like Fall colors, you can add that extra appeal to a home listed for sale. For home-sellers with attractive trees or foliage on or near the property, those fall colors can help make selling your home in the Fall the ideal time.
I tell all our clients, for homes looking to highlight their cozy family features, Fall is no doubt, the best time to sell.
