Why Fall is the Ideal Season to Sell Your Home

 

Clark’s Top Tips for Selling in the Fall Saskatoon Real Estate Market

Fall is an ideal time to sell your home, complete with its own set of specific advantages. Read on to learn how you can maximize your real-estate game this autumn.

More Time for Curb Appeal

If your house needs exterior work, fall is the ideal season to sell your home in Saskatoon. Don’t put your house on the market in the spring with these reno projects incomplete. Give yourself the warm weather

months to paint the exterior, ­x the deck or install a new fence, and don’t try to rush these projects so you can list in the spring. Waiting it out until fall, and having the right curb appeal, might just get you a higher selling price.

Less Competition

 

Most people list their homes come spring, and that’s a given. By the time autumn rolls around,

most sellers have either sold their place or taken it to other markets. This means less competition in the real estate market. The reduced inventory also means fewer options for buyers, and that can potentially lead to a more competitive price for your home.

Corporate Moves

 

Employers who need to relocate their workers often wait for the fall, when the market tends to cool down. These out-of-towners will probably need to get through the process quickly, which could mean a relatively speedy closing on your sale.

 

More Serious Buyer Pool

 

The best thing about selling your house in the fall is that you’re dealing with a more serious pool of buyers. By the time September or October rolls around, these buyers are

itching to get their move settled. Nobody wants to move in the snow or during the busy holiday season, so potential buyers usually, want to get things signed and sealed as quickly as possible.

Different Demographics

 

Autumn is when both empty-nesters and millennials begin looking for new properties. Stage your house to appeal to these buyers. Empty-nesters are often looking to downsize, so it’s a good time to sell a condo or a small house. If you have a large three or four-bedroom house, consider staging one of the bedrooms as a home office or TV room to help them visualize how they can use the space. When marketing to millennials, it also helps them see the potential of the space. For instance, with a two or three-bedroom house, consider staging one room as a nursery.

 

Flexible Market

 

As you enter the market in fall, chances are good that those still left on the market from spring and summer will be pushing for a sale. If you’re selling in the fall, it likely means you’re also buying something new, and you’ll likely ­and that those sellers are more willing to negotiate. If you can snag a deal on your new home, you’ll be able to make more strategic decisions in the selling of your old home.

The Calm Before The Storm

Oh, the weather outside has been frightful… but what does the condition of your home look like inside?

The first couple of weeks in March are what I like to refer to as “the calm before the storm”. The Spring market is right around the corner and warmer days are coming. If you, like many other homeowners who are considering listing their home, you may be waiting until the weather warms up to put your home on the market. If this is your strategy, this is a great time to tackle all of those interior projects you plan on completing before listing for sale. The ultimate goal is to sell your home for the greatest value possible in the least amount of time. Preparing your home for the market now will greatly increase your chances of accomplishing this goal.

Follow this listing checklist provided by the Canadian Real Estate Association for tips on where to begin with getting your home showing it’s best and be ready for the Spring market. Once you have that completed, your next step is to contact me and we will discuss a marketing strategy for achieving your real estate goals!

When Is The Best Time To List Your Home For Sale?

One of the most frequent questions I get asked from homeowners considering the idea of selling their home is, “When is the best time to list our home for sale?”  While the answer to the question isn’t necessarily black and white,   and there are often many social and economic factors to consider, the following is my take on when the best time to list our home for sale would be. Everyone has their own reason for selling, but this advice applies to anyone who has the luxury of time on their side and the choice of when they would like to list.

If it is a condo you are thinking of listing, whether it be a townhome, stand-alone home (bare land condo), or apartment style; I believe the best time to list is when competition is low. For example, if there are several other apartment-style units for sale comparable to yours in the same complex or building, chances are you are going to sit on the market for a while. Unless you have something completely unique to offer that your competition does not (eg.- view, additional parking, top floor, etc), then waiting until there aren’t as many comparable units for sale would be best.

You may have heard other Realtors® talk about ‘time of year’ when referring to the best time to sell, whereas I think the right advice is much deeper than that. I believe the   question that needs to be   asked is “what style of property are you wanting to sell?”.If it is an acreage property you own, then the main selling feature of the property is often the land and would be best shown in the summer months when foliage is in full bloom. Ideally, you would want to list in April or May as this is when most acreage buyers start up their search.Similarly, the same is true when considering selling a single family dwelling (stand-alone home). If there are many homes for sale comparable to yours in your immediate area, waiting until the competition is thinner might just be your best option.
