Summer has come to an end!
You may be telling yourself that you have missed the opportunity to sell and need to wait until next summer.

Hi! I'm Dixie Simon

Although it is not as "hectic and crazy" as with the swarms of summer buyers, the fall season brings out the most serious of lookers. They are the pool of buyers that waited out the summer frenzy to find their perfect home in the fall, and you don't want to miss these buyers! They are ready to make a move today! Don’t worry, selling in a slower period does not equate to less money. That is a misconception based on incorrect data and opinion that floats around. With the right agent and the correct price for your home, you can get a great price selling during the fall season. You might prefer it.

Here are the top 3 benefits to listing during the fall season.

1. Serious Buyers - Let's be honest, if buyers are out during the slow season looking for homes, they are serious and ready to buy. Although the summer brings in a large crowd, that crowd contains a lot of people that are excited by the season, and fall into the "trend" of house hunting. These people end up being less serious about the process and tend to hold off for another time. When people are investing precious time to look during the fall season, they are more likely to be interested in actually buying your home, instead of just touring it.

2. Less Competition - Selling in the fall isn't something all homeowners feel they can accomplish due to "busy" personal schedules. That is why a significant amount of homes get listed only during the summer season. This means that summertime brings in a lot of competition. Selling in the Fall/Winter means the house next door that has slightly more perks but doesn't get listed, won't necessarily affect your home negatively. You are not competing.

With a slower season, you get dedicated attention to your property, which increases the chance of a sale. It is worth it even if you are busy.

3. Your Home may be their Dream Home - Not only do you get to benefit from a slower season during the selling process, but you also benefit from the buying side. With the incredible interest rates right now, you stand a chance of a much bigger audience to sell to. The summer brings a lot of missed opportunities for buyers on their dream homes because of multiple offers and homes flying off the market instantly. Fall and Winter, however, allow you to showcase your home and let those serious buyers (who can afford more home due to the current low cost of money), to find their dream home. Fall is a much slower pace transaction, which makes it less stressful and an all-round happier time for everyone concerned.
