It’s the time of the year we awake to crisp mornings and autumn beginnings. With this change of season, we are seeing an increase in activity as the market “wakes” up as well. Over the last two weeks, buyers have emerged in numbers. Like the changing of Ohio weather, the market moves and prices adjust constantly. It’s our job to calibrate to the flow of the market. Physical showings are the best indicator regarding homes priced according to the market demand versus chasing the market.
With this in mind, autumn is one of the best times of the year to have your home on the market for a number of reasons…
1) There is less competition compared to spring and summer markets.
2) Buyers are more motivated than earlier in the year. If they missed the chance to buy over the summer, they are most likely looking to make a move before the weather changes and the holiday hoopla begins.
3) Interest rates are still amazingly low!
So if you are considering an adjustment in price, now is a great time to make your home as compelling as possible. I hope this information helps and as always, we are here to answer any questions or concerns.
