Fall BUYERS – selling your home in the fall
Fall can be a great time to sell your home. Many people don’t sell their homes in the fall and winter months so you’ll have less competition during these months.
Sellers often take their homes off the market in the fall/winter so there is less inventory which means less competition for you.
Fall buyers are typically highly motivated. Many weren’t able to find a home in the Spring or Summer and at this point many are very ready.
There are certain things you can do to prepare your home for selling in the fall.
WINTER BUYERS – selling your home in the winter
Winter buyers are usually highly motivated. They're often new job transfers, divorce situations or a change in family situations and/or financial situations.
They have less time to make a decision and are less concerned with all the details and are more concerned with having a few concrete parameters met.
They're often very motivated. Be ready and know these tips for selling your home in the winter.
spring BUYERS – selling your home in the spring
Spring buyers often start the home shopping process early so they can physically move in at the beginning of summer/mid-summer.
They’re often families with school age children. Many fit the profile of winter buyers.
Typically they want to get a jump on the market before the kids are out of school and summer plans begin. Many don't want to deal with moving in the summer since vacations and events are planned.
