A Perfect Time to "Fall" in Love With a Home
It has long been perceived that Spring and Summer were the best times to buy a house. It may come as a surprise but Fall might be the best time to make the leap and commit to the ‘big’ purchase. Grab your pumpkin spice latte and let us take you through the reasons why!
Fall can be busy. After a summer of vacations and enjoying the weather, it’s back to school, back to routine, back to real life. Fewer people are in the market to buy and that means less competition. This can be highly advantageous as you are less likely to get in a bidding war and secure your home at the price you comfortable with.
Homes on the market in the fall are generally from sellers who need to sell, which can make for a positive process with a faster and easier sale. In addition, if the home you are interested in has been on the market all summer long, it puts you at an advantage, in terms of making an offer the seller will seriously consider. The more time a house sits on the market, the greater negotiating power the buyer holds.
The Holidays are around the corner
A quick closing is favourable with the holiday season fast approaching. Sellers are likely to want to be in their own new homes getting ready for the festive season. This might be a great negotiating factor in gaining a bit more of a price reduction.
