Everyone loves fall. The leaves are changing, the temperatures start dropping, football season, pumpkin flavored everything, are some of the reasons why fall is so lovable. One of the other awesome things about fall is the housing market slows down, which is good news for buyers. There are a couple reasons why fall is a good time for home buyers, let’s take a look at some.

  • Less competition. As summer comes to an end and the school year starts up, there are fewer families who want to move because they do not want to have their children change schools or school districts during the middle of the year.

All of these are great reasons to love the fall season, but do you know there is another reason to love the fall? It is a great time to buy a new home! You know how you are able to score great deals at some of your favorite retailers when the seasons change? Well it works in the same type of way with Real Estate. We are going to give you five great reasons why you should purchase a new home this fall.

  1. Inventory from spring needs to sell! – Homeowners looking to sell tend to list their home at the first signs of spring. Sometimes these homes get listed too high and sits on the market through the summer. If the home is still on the market by the time fall arrives, the price most likely gets reduced. This is a great time to take a look at the properties you might have had your eye on in the spring and summer and see what they are listed for now.
  2. Less competition in the buyers market – Most families with children have already found a new home at this point as they want to be moved in at the start of the school year. These buyers are not likely shopping around anymore which means less competition for you. The open houses may be less crowded therefore giving you an opportunity to make an offer with a little more breathing room.
