Usually we find that there are fewer homes in the market in the Fall than the Spring. So when you figure there are fewer homes for sale, this in turn equals less choices in the market which should provide an increased demand for your home. You may see an increase in showings, followed by a greater possibility that an offer will be presented and you often get the best price for your home as a result.
Homes are sold and bought every day of the year because serious buyers are always out there hunting. The fall and winter months are also a great time for a potential buyer to see what a specific neighbourhood is like in regards to the different festive seasons to rain or snowfall in the area.
As you've probably heard a million times already this year, the mortgage rates are very low. Since mortgage rates are so low right now, buyers are able to afford bigger homes that they may not have been able to purchase before.
Because there are normally fewer real estate transactions in Fall then in the spring, you tend to get a quicker response from banks or mortgage brokers as there are fewer loans to process. Lawyers tend to have fewer closings so the panic to close isn't as stressful and home inspectors usually have fewer inspections booked so it is easier to schedule appointments with them as well.
