3 Reasons Fall Is a Great Time to Buy a Home
Here’s what you need to know about buying a home in the fall market.
Spring and summer are typically busier seasons for real estate, so why buy a home in the fall? Actually, there are a few good reasons to consider purchasing a home this time of year:
1. There’s less competition in the market. Fewer people are looking for homes in the fall, so you’ll have to compete with fewer buyers to get the house you want. There isn’t as much of a rush to pick a home that you’re not 100% sure you want.
"Don’t expect discounts on homes in the fall market, but homes listed at this time are most often priced correctly to attract buyers before the holidays set in."
2. Fall sellers are more serious. Some homeowners like to test the market when they list their homes; they might start off by listing their home with a different Realtor in the spring or summer, but they end up putting their house back on the market in the fall. Don’t expect discounts on homes in the fall market, but homes listed at this time are most often priced correctly to attract buyers before the holidays set in.
3. Everything is on sale. Lawnmowers, carpets, paints—many home goods stores have sales on these types of things in the fall, which would allow you to cheaply purchase those items for when you move into your new home.
