    Tips for Buying a House in the Fall

    Surprisingly, fall is a great time to buy a home. There are still homes on the
    market which did not sell during the summer months, some at deep discounts.

    There are also homes newly listed by sellers trying to beat the slower winter
    months. At the same time, there are fewer buyers out searching, which makes it
    the perfect time to buy a home.

     

    • Fall home buyers should be ready to move when they find the right home
    and at the right price. Get prequalified so that you can jump at the right
    opportunity.

    • Notice the imperfections. With windy or rainy weather, homes can show
    their scars. Look for evidence of water intrusion and evaluate the yard
    debris with the falling leaves. Look at gutters and ceilings for both.

    • Visit the local school. With school in session, this is a good time to visit and
    ask questions from teachers and administrators.

    • Wait for winter if necessary. Buyers all but evaporate in the winter months,
    so while the competition seems low in the fall, wait for the right home to
    come along, even if it’s in January.

      You make a great point about noticing the imperfections and being honest about them. I have a few exterior issues with my house and need to assess whether or not I should do repairs before selling it. I’ll have to consider getting an agent to see whether or not it will add value to the house.

        Making repairs before putting your house on the market might not add value, but should make the selling process a lot less stressful after a buyer has the home inspected. Food for thought!
