Just like buying a home, each season has pros and cons for selling your home. The fall can be a fantastic time to put your home on the market. Here are five benefits for selling your home in the fall.
The Seasonal Weather
With the heat of the summer and cold of the winter, fall is the ideal season to sell your home, and potentially move into a new one. The temperatures are cooler, but not so cold that you can’t have potential buyers explore the outside of the property, and the roads will be free of ice and snow, allowing potential buyers easier access. The fall is also a good season for your buyer because the new owner has time to make any adjustments before the cold weather hits.
Lower Moving Cost in the Fall
Summer is considered the peak season for moving companies. Selling your home in the fall could lead to more availability, and lower moving costs. If you move in the middle of the month, or the middle of the week, rates could be even lower. Selling your home in the fall with a lower moving cost could mean more money for upgrades for your new home.
Serious Buyers Will Buy in the Fall
With people back in work or school in the fall, the fall is a time when a serious or dedicated buyer will buy. While buyers who look during summer may just be casually tossing around the idea of moving, in the fall if someone comes to see your home, an offer is more likely because the buyer wants to move before the holidays.
The Fall Colors in Your Garden
Everyone wants their home to look the best it can be when showing to potential buyers. While you can fix some things in the house to make it better for showings, some things in nature are out of your control. In autumn, trees will have those beautiful fall colors to add color to the landscape. Many flower species bloom in the fall and can be planted to enhance curb appeal.
Sold In Time for the December Holidays
One of the major benefits of selling your home in the fall is that it will start the process, and your buyer can be in their new home by the winter holidays. Another reason to sell in the fall is that your buyer can take advantage of fall activities in their new neighborhood. These are just a few of the benefits of selling your home in the fall.
