Most people consider springtime and summertime to be the optimal time to sell their home, but selling your home in the fall season has many advantages that are often overlooked. Here are 5 of those advantages:
By selling your home in the Fall, you’re aligning yourself with potential buyers’ schedules who are looking to settle before the start of the new year. You increase your chances of bringing in committed buyers, because they are eager to start the new year in a new home.
Seasonal Curb Appeal
Take advantage of the cooler weather and showcase your home’s curb appeal! Implementing seasonal landscaping in moderation can further distinguish your home. Help potential buyers envision themselves living there by highlighting your home’s charm and making the exterior welcoming even during the holiday season ahead.
Choosing to sell your home in the Fall enables you to optimize your home’s coziness in a way that doesn’t work as well in the summer months. Have a fireplace? Make it your focal point. Warm blankets and throws…and all those wonderful fall pillows! Style the rooms to be warm and inviting, and use a neutral cream color if you plan on applying a fresh coat of paint.
There are fewer properties to compete with by selling in the Fall, due to the fact that most people think the Spring and Summer are the best times to sell their home. Because of this, it’s easier to make your home stand out and attract serious buyers. These buyers can be very motivated, resulting in quicker closings and even multiple offers in some instances.
Your closing process could be accelerated due to this lull that seems to reoccur in the fall months. Lenders, attorneys, inspectors, and appraisers can put more of their time and focus on your home due to reduced workloads. This is a huge advantage because it can mean a quick and well organized closing, which means less stress for you.
