Spring Listing vs Fall Listing, What You Should Do?

When considering selling your home and its past the rush of the summer season then let's look at the pro's and con's of selling your home in the coming seasons.
 
When you are selling a home, timing is a very important factor. Should you sell in The Fall or should you just wait for The Spring when the market is getting busy? 

Selling In the Fall:
 
There are often fewer homes on the market, inventory is low. Home sales may slow down after the summer rush and start of the new school year, but there are still buyers around looking at homes. There is a good chance that your home can be seen and be sold quickly. The supply and demand aspect of real estate can create an opportunity to sell at a higher price than may have been in the summer.
 

With the onset of fall, the trees offer wonderful colors and the ambience of the season is all around. Its a great time to show a home. Stage a little, light the fire, add some warm color and soft furnishings to complement the season setting the scene for a great showing. No one can resist the crispness of fall after the heat of the summer and a welcoming home in the fall can be a winning combination.
 
Selling in the Spring:

Spring is a wonderful time to get a home onto the market. Give the garden a fresh look and add some color to the outside do a little painting and cleaning which can increase the curb appeal. There are often many homes coming onto the market at this time with sellers who sat out the fall and winter in order to get a quick sale. 
 
With more homes offered and prospective buyers who wish to move in time for the new school season, this can often be a competitive time to sell. Often with a large supply of homes and a few buyers, the home prices are sometimes under pressure to be competitively priced.
 
When given the choices, there are options and sometimes selling in the fall can be a great time to sell.
Of course its up to you - but don't discount the option of getting your home on the market in time for Fall.
