Fall offers some excellent opportunities to sell your home. Unfortunately there are many myths surrounding the fall market that may make some home sellers hesitant to list their homes.
If you are thinking of selling your home, we dispel some common myths about selling this season.
The cold weather deters homebuyers
Just because the weather cools down for fall, doesn't mean the real estate market does as well. Homebuyers who came up short in the summer may even be more committed to finding a home this season. When preparing your home for a showing, be sure to turn up the thermostat to make the buyers feel comfortable. You can even turn on your fireplace and add some blankets and pillows to create a warm and cozy indoor atmosphere.
Buyers pay less attention to the price
Price is always a key factor for homebuyers, and pricing your home incorrectly is the biggest mistake you can make when listing in the fall. Setting the right price can be tricky, and since the market may shift in the fall you will need to be extra careful with your pricing. If you're wondering what your home is worth, working with an experienced real estate agent will help ensure your home is priced correctly.
Curb appeal counts regardless of the season. Just because summer is over, doesn't mean potential buyers don't care about the home’s exterior, or aren't envisioning themselves living there in the summer months. The fall season also creates a new host of outdoor maintenance that requires your attention. Be sure to clear the leaves from the walkways and gutters and dress up the exterior of your house with seasonal decor.
