Reasons to Embrace the Fall Home Selling Season

Fall is on its way, and with it comes serious buyers searching for a home. If you’re considering selling your home and moving to a Life Plan Community such as The Estates at Carpenters, now is a great time!

According to Cristine Royer, Director of Marketing and Sales at The Estates at Carpenters, a Life Plan Community in Lakeland, Florida, those who want to sell their homes often have a lot of luck in autumn. “Once the back-to-school season is over, the rush of summer vacation slows down and life returns to normal, many people have more time to look into buying a home,” she says. “There’s a quiet time in the fall that’s hard to beat. The holidays haven’t yet arrived, and vacations aren’t being taken since school just began, making it a prime time for buyers and sellers alike.”

Why Should Home Sellers Embrace the Fall Home Selling Season? 

If you’re considering selling your home, here are a few reasons why it’s smart to make the switch now.

  • It’s almost always the hot season to sell a home in Lakeland! According to The Balance, buyers are more serious in the fall and tend to purchase homes quickly. They state that autumn is the second-best time to sell a home. It’s still nice enough to spend time outside, fall flowers and their bright colors pop and people want to get cozy.

Plus, the Lakeland real estate market in general is hot – with more people moving to the area and demand continuing to grow.

  • Homes stand out. Because there are often less people selling homes during the fall, your home is more likely to stand out. Buyers are motivated and likely to tour. This is especially true just before winter, as sales dip drastically.
  • Everyone wants to be home for the holidays. There really is no place like home for the holidays. Many buyers would love to be in a new home by the holidays so they can decorate and invite family and friends to their new home. To give them an idea of what it could look like, try adding some tasteful decorations and a fall-scented candle to give it that warm, homey feeling.
