It might be the season for goblins and ghosts but selling your home doesn’t have to be scary! Thinking about listing your current home this season? Have no fear! We’ve got some tips to remove the fear factor and help you enjoy the process, no tricks!
Consider the Season –
While you might think spring and summer are the best times to sell your home, there are still plenty of benefits to selling a home in the fall.
Housing Inventory is Lower –
Housing inventory is typically lower during this time of year. Most people try to list their homes in the spring and summer to coordinate with the kids’ school year. But that doesn’t mean fall isn’t a good time to sell! In fact, we’re still seeing more buyers in the market than homes, so that puts your home at an advantage when you list in the fall.
More Serious Buyers –
Less houses available means your home will have less competition. What’s more, buyers who need to move in fall may be more motivated to do so more quickly.
Consider the Weather & Fall Decor –
Plus the weather is still relatively warm for showings and open houses.
Just don’t let falling leaves or dead plants creep out potential buyers! Give your front porch some autumn awesomeness with pumpkins, mums and other seasonal decor.
If you’re thinking of selling, act now! The sooner professional photos are taken of your home, the better for more natural light and a lovelier outdoor space.
And work with a real estate professional who can advise you each step of the way!
