Hard to believe, but once we enter October, we’re down to just 90 days left in the year! If one your goals was to list your home, there’s still time to mark this off your list. Rest assured, it’s a great time to list your home this Fall. We’re sharing five top benefits of selling your home this Fall.
Typically Spring and Summer are known as high season for listing family homes. The reason behind this is being the desire to move over the summer before the new school year starts. This usually means listings decrease some in the Fall, leaving you with less competition and higher sales prices. This can still apply, even in today’s market with substantially low inventory!
When the heat of the summer is gone and cool crisp days return, people just want to be out and about, enjoying the beautiful weather. That means it’s a great time to get out and tour homes, especially weekend Open Houses. Additionally, the cooler Nashville weather also helps buyers envision utilizing your outdoor spaces more this time of year. So make sure you stage these areas well to attract potential buyers.
Celebrate Fall by planting some fresh flowers, staging your front porch (think potted mums, pumpkins, and a fall wreath) and carry the theme inside with more Fall decor and seasonal scented candles. Listing your home in the Fall is a great time to help your home stand out from your neighbors with an autumn-inspired front entry.
Fall and winter buyers tend to be more serious. They likely want (or need!) to move by the end of the year to get settled before the holiday season. The demographics of buyers during this time of year broadens to include younger professionals, first-time home buyers, empty nesters, and retired people. These buyers have more flexibility over when they move, than those with schoolchildren.
Similarly, companies that relocate employees regularly take advantage of the fall market. Listing your home during this time of year helps take advantage of this sub-set of buyers relocating to Nashville. One of the reasons behing this is corporations can usually get better deals on moving expenses since it’s a “slower” time for them. Companies also tend to make personnel changes in the fall as that often corresponds with their new fiscal year.
There’s more reasons I’d love to share with you why this is such a great time to list Your Home this Fall.
