Tradition says that the best time to list your Asheville home for sale is in spring and if it hasn’t sold by the end of summer, you’re out of luck. Along the same lines, homeowners across the country are often advised not to list in the fall and wait until after the holidays to list. The truth is that a great home will sell at any time of year! In fact, there are some very good reasons to list in the fall, while everyone else is busy doing other activities. We have a few reasons why it’s great to consider putting your home up for sale while the leaves are falling and the weather is cooling off.
4 Reasons to Sell Your Asheville Home This Fall
1. Less Competition
As mentioned above, most sellers list in spring so as a seller, fall provides you with less competition. This increases the opportunity for buyers to view your home. Fall is a great time to
2. Serious Buyers
Homebuyers in fall often have a timeline to move before the holidays. They tend to take house hunting seriously and move to write offers faster and avoid wasting time. Buyers tend to be highly motivated this time of year and eager to close so they can start planning holiday parties and other events.
3. Curb Appeal
Fall is a beautiful time of year and homes always seem cozier as the weather turns. Fall colors in the trees and the scent of baking entice buyers to feel “at home” which encourages offers. Try adding potted mums or marigolds on your front porch along with a pumpkin or two to enhance the autumn curb appeal of your Asheville home for sale.
4. Closing is Easier
The pace of home sales slows during the fall; as such lenders can move faster and the process tends to take less time—meaning money in your pocket faster! The last and most important reason to sell this fall is that it’s the right time for you and your family!
