When the days get shorter and the evenings start cooling off, the real estate market is still hot. Toward the end of summer, families that are buying and selling take a break to spend their final days of the season on family vacations, barbecues, and getting ready for school to start (and a normal schedule at home!). Once the kids go back to class, those same families jump back in and the real estate market heats up again for a couple months. Here are 4 reasons to keep focused on buying or selling your home.
Winter is Coming
With so much already going on with family and friends, most people aren’t looking to make a move during the holidays. So their final hurrah of the year will likely come in the 8 weeks before Thanksgiving.
Buyers and sellers mean business
Because the cold weather is right around the corner, the ones who remain are serious about making that move before the holidays start. This means that buyers will be serious with their offers and sellers who are exhausted after the summer season will entertain offers they may not have considered before.
Year End Tax Credit
When tax time arrives next April, you may be able to take tax deductions for closing costs, property tax, and mortgage interest, which offset your taxable earnings.
Update and Upgrade
Once you are ready to make the move, you may want to upgrade your appliances. According to Consumer Reports, December is when you can find real bargains on major appliances! Refrigerators, stoves, washers, and dryers can all be found for a deal. Plus, it’s also the best time of year to buy cookware and TVs.
So while the warmer weather is wrapping up, don’t give up on buying or selling your home this year! There is a discouraged buyer for every exhausted seller, and you just may find each other this autumn!
