Should I list my Big Rapids home in the fall?

Real Estate Agent with Greenridge Realty Oakmont

Many people wonder if this is a 'good time' to list their home for sale. 

It can be... if your home is priced to sell. 

Typically, the overall number of homes that sell in the fall and winter months in Michigan are lower than spring & summer volume, but there are always people who must move at any time of the year.

In Big Rapids especially, there are people looking to relocate due to job transfers which can occur at any time of the year.

Sellers listing at this time of the year need to pay special attention to curb appeal, as fallen leaves and dying foilage can detract in a hurry.  Cut back any dead foilage and keep it as neat as possible.  A good exterior cleaning can sometimes do wonders as well to make your home more appealing.

Interest rates are still good, which helps keep buyers looking at this time of the year, so go ahead and list if you are ready to price it right... always the key to getting your home sold!
