While it's now officially fall, and a few degrees cooler in Tampa Bay, it doesn't mean the real estate market is cooling off! Although the summer is typically the "hot" season to buy or sell a home due to more relaxed schedules, NOW is the time for serious buyers and sellers. With the right agent, you can get a great deal buying or selling your home during the fall season. Here are the top reasons to buy or sell now:
1. Serious Buyers: Though the summer brings in a large crowd, that crowd contains a lot of people that are excited by the season and fall into the "trend" of house hunting. If people are investing time to look during the fall season, they are more likely to be seriously interested in buying a home.
2. Less Competition: Selling in the fall means that the house next door which has slightly more perks, but was listed during the summer, doesn't make your home sit stagnant. With a slower season, you get dedicated attention to your property, which increases the chance of a sale.
3. Easier to Find Your Dream Home: A much calmer pace to the transaction will make it less stressful. Don't feel rushed into buying a home overnight like you may during the summer.
