Fall Is An Ideal Time To List Your Home

Several studies show that, on average, homes listed during this time

are more likely to sell, sell more quickly, and sell closer to the asking price. 

Here are some of the reason why Fall is an ideal time to list your home.


Fewer Listings/Less Competition

Buyers usually have fewer homes to choose from coming into the holidays. That means less competition for you and more buyers checking out your home, either online or in person.


More Motivated Buyers

Buyers looking for a home in Fall, are usually highly motivated buyers. The traditional barriers to fall/winter house-hunting (bad weather, short days, school year, holiday preparations) don't apply. If your house is available for them to view, during this time, these buyers are more likely to make an offer close to listing price.


Tax Benefits

A house marketed in Fall may lure buyers looking for year-end tax breaks. Buyers looking to lower their taxes may snatch up a home late in the year so they can deduct home purchase costs. If someone sold a house during the traditional selling season and faces capital gains tax on the deal, they may be highly motivated to buy by year end, since closing on the purchase of another house may let them avoid paying capital gains tax.


Corporate Relocation

The biggest months for corporate relocation are January and February. Providing even more very motivated buyers wanting to move quickly and get settled.
