AUTUMN 2023 - Is September a good time to sell your home?
All across the nation, real estate prices are at record highs. Between COVID lockdowns refocusing Americans on the pleasures of home and remote work encouraging migration out of the cities, the housing market is booming. With a deep, professional cleaning, revamped landscape, and a few little home repairs, you can maximize your selling price.
Once your home is prepared, when is the best time to list it? Should you sell your home in September? Is now the best time? The short answer is yes, and we’ll tell you why.
The top 3 reasons why September is a great time to sell your home:
1. Less competition
There’s a long-held belief that spring is the ideal time to sell a house. That mistaken belief can actually work to your advantage as many sellers will hold off on selling until March or April. When fewer homes are available for buyers to choose from, there is more competition, potentially leading to a bidding war that can drive up your home’s value even further.
In addition, rather than worrying about what the house down the street is priced at or what upgrades they have that you don’t, you can simply focus on the sprucing up needed to make your house truly shine.
2. Incredible weather
In terms of weather, it doesn’t get much better than September. Crisp, cool air, is certainly a better environment for house hunting than the sloppy, wet snow of winter or the stifling heat of summer. Opened windows with a crisp breeze blowing through will make your home feel fresh and clean.
When it comes to taking listing photos of your home, the backdrop of changing leaves is simply unbeatable. Fall foliage and a few containers of colorful chrysanthemums will make your exterior photos really pop.
3. The holidays are coming
A September listing gives buyers the potential of being in their new home in time for the holidays — September is the last month before they risk moving right in the middle of the holidays. With a well-planned closing date, the new homeowners could be ready to entertain friends and family by Thanksgiving. Story by Kim Renta • 21OAK
