It is accepted that there is a “best” time to sell a property, with the peak season falling in the spring. However, that should not stop you from marketing your home at other times throughout the year, especially when you have a professional by your side.
There are some benefits to selling your home in the fall.
There Is Less Competition In The Fall
Since fall is considered the off-season, there will be less competition from other sellers attempting to attract the same buyers. This is great for allowing your property to stand out among local listings.
You Will Have More Time For Improvements
Selling a property in the fall means that you will have more time to make improvements, such as new roofing or fixing up that old bathroom from the 80s. Making improvements to the home will make the home more attractive to buyers and eliminate some of the potential problems that will inevitably surface during buyer’s inspections.
Serious Buyers Are Motivated To Purchase Quickly
Buyers who purchase homes in the fall are motivated to do so quickly, especially if they held off during the peak season in the spring and summer. These fall buyers are also often more committed to the purchase and are not just shopping for a home. It is also a great motivation to close on the house in time for the Holidays or at least before the end of the year.
