Benefits of Listing Your House in the Fall

I think it is common knowledge that listing your house in the spring time is the most fall photo with logopopular time but did you know that fall listings can be just a successful.  Think about it… most people who are house shopping want to make sure they have found their new home before the harshest part of the winter hits.  This ensures that those buyers are more serious, make quicker decisions, and want to speed the process along just as quickly as you, the seller, does.

Curb appeal is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects of selling a home. If you can’t get them interested from the outside there is not much of a chance they will even take the time to see the inside.  And really, what better backdrop can you have to your home than the deep, rich, and beautiful colors of the fall leaves.  You can’t buy this type of home staging!

The fall weather also helps to encourage potential home buyers to set up roots.  With the chill in the air the desire to nestle into a cozy, warm home is almost instinctual.  Increase the appeal by lighting a fire in the fireplace, baking a batch of cookies, and adding warm, earth tones to the interior of your home.  All of these will help the buyer feel at home and comfortable.

If you are considering selling your house soon but thought you should wait until spring… don’t! We can help you figure out the best home selling plan, price, and timeline.  Feel free to contact us with any questions! We look forward to hearing from you!

Shake off winter. The winter temperatures were brutal. You may have decided to hold on listing your home because of that alone. But, as Spring has started to reveal itself, it’s a great time to sell your home.

Be fresh on the market. The market is indicating that over half of all home transactions in 2014 will be bought and sold from May to August. By listing now, you can take advantage of being a new listing during the start of the selling season before buyers start thinking of back to school.

Get price comparatives. As your Realtor, we can look at the comps of similar homes in your area to see what is selling, and for how much. This baseline will give us a great picture of how to price your home to sell.

Take advantage of less competition. By listing soon, you will have less competition than when the rush of homes hit the market in May and June.

Enhance outdoor living spaces. These living spaces are such great selling features. Showing the expansion of the home’s space in outdoor living areas is an asset in selling now.

If you’ve been considering making a move, now is the time to contact me to get your home ready to list and take advantage of the Spring market!
