Tips for Home Sellers
While the fall housing market isn't quite as popular or flourishing as spring or summer, there are still plenty of home buyers now seeking a new home. If you plan to sell this season, keep in mind these common motivations to selling your home this time of year:
- First-time buyers. During the fall, there is a higher ratio of first-time home buyers. Families with children plan their home purchase around their child’s school-year schedule, resulting in high traffic of these types of buyers during the summertime. Keep in mind that you will be seeing more first-time buyers, so make sure to cater to what they need and look for in a home.
- The holidays. Many people looking to buy a house during the fall are emotionally driven to be in a new home by the holidays, so put yours on the market well before the holiday season rolls around.
- Less competition. By selling your home in the fall, you will face less competition with smaller inventories than in the spring or summer seasons
