The advantages of selling your home in the fall

Posted 2 years ago

Gaby Leveille | The advantages of selling your home in the fallThinking of selling but wondering if the fall season is the right time? Traditionally, a spring market is always the busiest, but home sales switch hands all year long and fall is a great time to attract serious buyers. Deciding to sell your home during the cool fall season can create hidden benefits to your sale and help ensure you get top dollar for your property. Don’t worry about the changing seasons, here are a few reasons why autumn has its benefits:

Curb Appeal
Often regarded as one of the most important details when showing your home, the fall season is a great time to make the most of your curb appeal with well-maintained lawns and polished landscaping. As the season cools, neighbours often invest less time in their yard work. Use this to your advantage and your perfectly maintained property is sure to stand out on the block.

Selling a home is much like selling an image. Cool fall weather is the perfect time to finish do-it-yourself projects, repaint window coverings and garages, stain the decks and repave driveways. Transform your front door with a fresh coat of paint and change outdated locks and handles on your front door, replace rusty fixtures and add lighting to the front porch and yard.

You can also appeal to the season and decorate with bold fall colours to brighten up your exteriors and add a boost of colour to your garden with fall bloomers like mums and pansies.

More time to dedicate to the sale
Selling your home can be a lengthy process; attracting buyers, arranging meetings and drawing up offers to complete the sale takes a lot of time. Fall schedules usually see people home from vacation and back into scheduled routines. This applies to both sellers and buyers. It can also apply to professional inspectors, appraisers and notaries you may need to hire to complete your sale. Back to their scheduled routines means they are able to complete work more quickly.

Serious Buyers
Fall buyers are serious buyers. Often new home owners, retirees and people moving for career changes, these buyers are well researched and ready to commit to the sale. As winter gets closer, most buyers want to ensure they are comfortably moved into their new home before the holidays and the stormy weather begins.
