School is back in session, the holidays are right around the corner, you might not think that now is the best time to sell your house. But with inventory below historic numbers and demand still strong, you could be missing out on a great opportunity for your family.
Here are few reasons why you should consider selling your house this fall:
1. Less competition
With a lower inventory, buyers looking to move during the fall season may have to narrow down their wish lists. Similarly, you may not have to complete all of the cosmetic updates you’d have to make to compete with the high volume of sellers during the spring selling season if you wait until the fall.
2. Kids are back in school
House hunting can be a lot easier without the little ones in tow! As a seller, it’s also much easier to keep your house tidy with your school-aged children out of the house all day. A whole lot less stressful for both parties!
3. Holiday staging opportunities
Use the general “homey” feeling of fall to your benefit. Capitalize on the scents, smells and colors of the season to stage your home. Baskets of fall fruits, a pumpkin out front and anything cinnamon scented Will bring an immediate cozy feeling to a room!
4. Faster transaction times
Depending on where you live, there will likely be a lower number of real estate transactions occurring in your market during the fall season. This means lenders have fewer loans to process, attorneys have fewer closings to facilitate and home inspectors have fewer inspections to do – which could lead to a faster closing!
5. You’ll be in your new home by the holidays!
Your home will be sold and by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, you’ll be unpacked and decorated!
