Spring and summer may get all the publicity, but there are actually quite a few reasons why it makes sense to sell in the fall, especially this year. Here are five reasons why selling this fall makes perfect sense:

1. Demand is very strong. According to the NAR Buyer Traffic Report, demand remains strong throughout the vast majority of the country, including many locations in Central Virginia. Inventory below $300,000 is sparse and highly coveted.

2. There is less competition right now. With inventory down, there just aren’t a lot of homes for buyers to look at. It’s a strong seller’s market in homes priced $300,000 and below.

3. The process will be quicker. Mortgage lenders and title companies aren’t as busy during the fall months, so they’re able to get deals moved along much more quickly. Buyers are also becoming pre-qualified much sooner, which increases the speed of the process as well.

It’s a great time to be a move-up buyer.

4. There will never be a better time to move up. There is so much pressure on higher priced homes right now because the inventory for these homes is high. If you’re a move-up buyer, you can take advantage of the conditions by selling high and buying low in a higher price range. This is the best time in years to move up.

5. It is simply time to move on. This time of year could be an exceptional time for you and your family. Maybe you’ve been thinking about making a move for a while or maybe you just realized it’s time for a fresh start. Regardless, we’ll be here to help.
