Summer is known as the best season for Buying and Selling a home but many other reasons can prove otherwise! Buying a Home in the Fall can be significantly less stressful compared to the busy seasons. To just name a few, these are our most valuable points for doing business in the Fall!
In the Summer, the stress of Buying a home can be unbearable for some. There is much more pressure with bids, offers, moving in the heat, etc. And most of the buyers are trying to get settled before the school year starts and summer is over! With the Fall seasons comes a much more relaxed Market. Many worry about there being less homes on the market, but in reality there are just as many- and they may be easier to negotiate for!
With the chaos dwindling down, Seller’s can be more willing to negotiate. They have exhausted their efforts from trying to sell in the Summer- the prime season, and waiting for Spring just isn’t an ideal situation for any Seller. With this in mind, you most definitely will have a better chance when presenting your offer as opposed to the bidding wars that take place in some situations.
Seller’s More Willing
As mentioned- Summer is over and their home is still on the market. Some seller’s plan on moving themselves and at this point they just want to get on with it. They can be much more willing to negotiate a deal with you and they are more inclined to pay attention to your offer.
With the money you save from negotiating in the Fall as opposed to breaking the bank for the dream home you had your eyes on in the Summer, you can invest in your new home and make it yours! You never know until you try how much money you actually can save from negotiating a deal in the off season.
Fall is a Safe Time
And with that saved money- you can use the cooler months to take advantage of the safest time of the year. It is a known fact that crime is lower in the cooler seasons. Use this time to repair your home and add any additional amenities you desire.
