While spring is a particularly busy time for the real-estate market, fall is the second best time of year for those looking to sell their homes. Both “empty nesters” and young adults who aren’t concerned with moving once the school year has begun are now on the lookout for a new home.
Take a look at why autumn is the perfect time to post that “For Sale” sign in your front yard.
Higher Buyer Demand
According to the Realtors’ Confidence Index from the National Association of Realtors, buyer demand is actually quite strong. It’s important to take advantage of the buyer activity during this period since the competition for buyer attention significantly decreases.
Natural Curb Appeal
Since curb appeal plays a major factor when selling your home, the gorgeous New England foliage will absolutely enhance your home’s appearance. Come winter, homeowners aren’t as lucky as the snow and barren trees will downplay your home’s exterior.
Moving is More Challenging When It’s Humid
Moving in the summertime has its advantages but this also can be incredibly hectic, especially in towns surrounding Boston. The weather is humid during this time so carrying heavy boxes up several flights of stairs is much more difficult. It’s much easier and less time consuming to move when the weather is a bit more comfortable.
Better to Buy a More Expensive Home Now
According to CoreLogic, prices will increase by 5.3% over the next year. This means, in raw dollars, higher-priced homes will be very costly. Over the next 12 months, interest rates will increase slightly but even this can affect the housing cost.
