Buy A Home In The Fall
Fall is the new ideal season to buy a home. Competition for houses drops off in the fall, a time many people consider to be off-season in real estate. But there are still homes for sale and in some cases, there’s just as much inventory as there was during the spring and summer. Fall means new inventory and re-positioned old inventory that did not sell in the prime season and this puts buyers in a great position to negotiate.
Some sellers who put their homes on the market during the prime selling times of spring and summer might have been a tad overconfident by listing their homes for more than buyers were willing to spend. After months of no action, these sellers are often ready to make a deal this time of the year. Not all homes on the market in fall are summer leftovers. Some people need to sell in the fall because the timing is right.
Maybe they were having a home built, and it’s now ready. Maybe they need to move because of a job, there are many reasons. There are bound to be improvements you’ll want to make after buying a house. You’ll also probably need to buy items to maintain your home, and if appliances weren’t part of the deal, you’ll need those too. Wouldn’t it be great to coordinate your home purchase with sales on items you’ll need? According to Consumer Reports, the calendar determines when it’s a good time to buy all sorts of consumer goods.
In particular, September is a great time for buying carpet and paint. October means lawn mowers go on sale, and appliances and cookware are cheaper in November.
