4 Reasons Why Fall is a Great Time to Buy & Sell

Will this fall be the best time for you to BUY or SELL a home?

As the days get shorter you might find a longer list of reasons to buy or sell. Just like the ever changing leaves on autumn trees, the real estate market shifts constantly and while the spring market tends to bloom with budding flowers, the fall market offers a transitional pace that many buyers and sellers appreciate. Here are a few reasons why it is a preferred time of year.

Sellers tend to put their homes on the market in the spring or they may need to sell without wanting the spring frenzy. If homes are on the market come October, you may find owners particularly motivated to sell.

Families who want to be in a new home by the beginning of the school season are no longer shopping at this point. That translates into less competition and more opportunities for buyers to find the right home. You’ll likely notice fewer buyers at open houses, which could signal greater opportunity to make an offer.

While a home is where an owner lives and makes memories, it is also an investment — one with tax consequences. A home seller may want to take advantage of a gain or loss during this tax year, so you might find homeowners looking to make considerations to close before December 31st.

As the holidays approach, sellers and buyers are eager to close so they can move on to planning their parties and events by or before November.
