The spring and summer months have always been known as the hottest time to buy and sell a home, but now you can add fall to the list, too! Here’s a few reasons why fall is a great time to buy and sell a home in the Queen City.
For starters, many people consider fall to be an off-season. Buyers often pause or completely stop their searches. School starts and the holidays come quickly making for busy schedules. Sometimes this allows for more room for negotiation on both sides. Sellers are often worn out as well. They just spent the last several months exhausting their resources trying to sell which means they could be more willing to negotiate prices now.
Alternatively, this certainly doesn’t mean that homes on the market are summer’s leftovers. Some people are looking to sell in the fall because the timing is right for them. They’re serious about selling and need to leave because of a job, family situation or another pressing reason. Those types of sellers could be more open to negotiations as well.
Finally, it’s one last chance to take advantage of those tax breaks! You can’t escape paying income tax but you can make a dent in what you owe. When it comes to owning a home, there are tax breaks you can claim to help sweeten your return this season.
