2 Reasons to List Your Home This Fall

Most people think that they should wait until next spring to put their homes on the market. However, there are two reasons why fall is actually the best time to sell your home.

As you probably know, most Orlando sellers put their homes on the market in the spring and hope to sell in the summer, thinking that summer is the best time to sell.

However, there are two main reasons why fall may actually be the best time to put your home on the market.

First of all, by listing now, you will face less competition. Since everyone else is waiting for the new year to put their homes on the market, listing in the fall is a great way to showcase your home. There won’t be many other properties on the market, allowing yours to stand out.

According to the Orlando Realtors Association, our inventory is at an all-time low right now, with only 3.5 months of inventory available on the market. In January, that number will spike and there will be a lot more competition on the market.



Buyers are motivated to make a move in the fall.



The second reason why fall is a great time to sell is that buyers are serious and extremely motivated at this time of year. They have been through the spring and summer markets and are ready to make a move. They want to get their family into a new home so they can celebrate the holidays together.

Of course, these are just two of the reasons why fall is the best time to put your home on the market. There are even more here.

If you have been thinking about putting your home on the market, give us a call or send us an email so we can get you set up this fall. We look forward to speaking with you!

What's the state of the Central Florida real estate market? I'm happy to report some great news to you today.

The median price is up to $205,000, which is a 12% increase from this time last year. This is great news for all of you who own real estate here in Central Florida because it means you're starting to build more and more equity back into your properties.

Another great statistic I wanted to share is that 90% of sales have been traditional sales. This is great because it means that distressed sales (short sales and bank-owned sales) only encompass 10% of the market.

Similarly, the fact that inventory is down to 3.35 months is another good statistic. This means that if no other properties came onto the market, it would take us just 3.35 months to sell every home currently on the market, so inventory is very limited. We need properties to sell, so if you've been on the fence about taking advantage of these great market conditions for sellers, now might be a better time than ever.



Things are great for both buyers and sellers.



Things are good for buyers, too. Mortgage rates are still at historic lows at 3.5%. If you're also on the fence about buying a home, know that interest rates are projected to go up soon, so you want to lock in those low interest rates now while you can.

As you can see, the state of our market is strong right now. If you're thinking about buying or selling a home during these favorable times in our market, give us a call or send us an email. We would love the chance to work with you!
