5 Reasons to Sell your Home in the Fall

5-reasons-to-2

Fall brings about images of brightly coloured trees, warm apple cider, pumpkin everything—and a Home for Sale sign That last one may be a new one for you, but at Young Real Estate we have 5 reasons why Fall is one of the BEST times to sell your home:

  1. Fall Brings About More Buyers

Fall is the best time to sell because it is right before the holiday season hits full force. Typically we see a drop in the market from December-February, so listing your home just before this hits is optimal to capitalize on a strong potential to sell your home faster and for the optimal price.

  1. Interest rates are still low but maybe increasing anytime

Interest Rates are always a hot topic, as recent studies show that even a 1% increase in the interest rate could lead to nearly a million Canadians not being able to pay it! The rate has held steady as of late, but rumour continue to surface of changes to come.

  1. The Competition is Less

There are considerably less homes For Sale at this time of the year the in spring or summer. Fall is a the perfect time to showcase your home and to play into the high demand that the market has been experiencing.

  1. Rumours of New Mortgage Lending Laws

You may have heard that the BC Government and the Federal Government are introducing new mortgage laws, These new laws have started to come into effect, with the first coming into play on October 17, and are working to SLOW the market—making this fall more than any other time highly desirable to sell before the buyers options become limited!

  1. Risk of Home Pricing Decreasing in 2017

With new mortgage and lending laws coming into effect with their goal to be to LOWER the price of homes, there is a high likelihood that we will see a drop in prices of homes. This is great for the buyer, but not so great for you the seller! Capitalize on this well the market is HOT and list your home this fall.
