When people think of selling a house, they usually think springtime – and for good reason! It’s the busiest time of the year for home sales and many parents want to move while the kids are out of school. But did you know that fall is the second busiest season in the real estate market?
Many people go on vacation in the summer so you won’t experience the same foot traffic as you would in the spring or fall. The heat can be a deterrent as well. By the fall, people are ready to be out and about again, instead of sitting by the pool or enjoying the air conditioning!
In the fall, kids are back in school. House hunting can be a lot easier without the little ones in tow! As a seller, it’s also much easier to keep your house tidy with your school-aged children out of the house all day.
Another great benefit is using the general “homey” feeling of fall to your benefit. Capitalize on the scents, smells and colors of the season to stage your home. Baskets of fall fruits, a pumpkin out front and anything cinnamon scented will bring an immediate cozy feeling to a room!
Lastly, you’ll be in your new home by the holidays! Your home will be sold and by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, you’ll be unpacked and decorated!
