With school starting and the holidays right around the corner, you may not think that now is the right time to sell; however, there are many benefits to listing your home now!
Here are 4 reasons why listing your home this fall can benefit you as the seller:
1. Less Competition
Everyone likes to list their home in the spring and summer when the weather and market are both "hot". That being said, listing your home in the fall when there is less inventory creates higher demand and less competition!
2. Serious Buyers
In the spring and summer months, many buyers are "just looking" and not as serious about finding a home. Fall buyers tend to be much more committed. They may have spent the spring and summer months searching without finding the perfect home, or they need to move because of relocation, a new job, etc. Whatever the reason, fall buyers are typically more serious and anxious to find a home before the holidays!
3. Easier to Find Your Next Home
If you are selling your property and need to purchase a new home, buying a home in the fall can be beneficial for some of the same reasons selling a home in the fall is. You have much less competition, and typically won't have to worry as much about getting into multiple offer situations. In addition, sellers who have had their home on the market since the summer may be more eager to get their home sold!
4. Professional Photography Before the Snow Flies!
Even if you aren't ready to list your home this fall, let's get photos of your home taken now before the ground freezes and is covered in snow! Yards and landscaping can be a huge selling point, and we want to make sure you are showcasing those items when you are ready to list your home!
