Selling Your Home During the Fall Season

Posted on at 1:10 pm by Andrea Webber

The onset of Labor Day weekend signals that glorious that the fall season has arrived. Our thoughts immediately turn to pumpkin spice lattes, changing leaves and selling a home. Wait. Selling a home?! Yes, fall can be a great time to sell your home if you play your cards right. Here’s why:

  • Reduced Competition – The inventory of homes listed for sale in the Denver real estate market typically decreases during the autumn months, meaning that your home will face reduced competition from other homes on the market. This increases your negotiating power with potential buyers.
  • Different Buyers – If you didn’t have much luck selling your home over the summer, there is good news! Fall homebuyers differ from spring/summer buyers in several ways. The spring and summer months typically bring more families into the market who want to be settled into a new home prior to the start of the school year. The fall homebuyer is typically more serious about buying a home and is determined to facilitate a quick and easy transaction. During the fall, there are typically more single people, married couples without children or empty nesters looking for homes in the Denver real estate market. Additionally, the fall real estate season typically spurs corporate relocations, since many companies need to relocate employees prior the end of the year. Of course, these buyers are going to be serious about purchasing a home.
  • Fall Staging – The fall season brings many opportunities to accentuate your home on the inside and outside. Potential homebuyers must be able to picture themselves in your home during the most festive times of the year. Break out your fall candles and cozy accessories with autumn accent colors. On the outside, consider decorating your porch with a classic fall theme, including mums or pumpkins.
  • Autumn is a great time to purchase a home and make a move – Fall is a great time to purchase a home due to decreased competition from other buyers in the market. Additionally, movers and other vendors are less busy during the fall season than they are during the summer months.
