According to Fannie Mae the U.S. housing market is slated to continue its upward climb through the fourth quarter of 2013, providing an ideal opportunity to list homes for sale this fall. Timing can be everything when trying to successfully sell a home, especially in Flagstaff Arizona where changes in seasons and climates can often influence market fluctuations. Making the decision to list a home for sale during the fall months can create an array of hidden benefits while helping to ensure buyers are paying top dollar for properties.
“Although most believe that summer is the best time to sell a home, fall is one of the least competitive times in which to list,” explains Valerie Caro, Owner and Agent, Flagstaff Top Producers Real Estate. “There really are a large number of serious buyers looking for homes and investment properties in the fall; this is the perfect time to list in Flagstaff as well as the surrounding areas in Northern Arizona.”
Autumn is also the perfect time to use curb appeal as a major advantage by maintaining lawns and landscaping. With cooler temperatures, neighbors will often spend less time on yard work, making a pristinely maintained property really stand out. Fall is also a great time to wrap up home improvement projects that may have been put off due to busy summer schedules. Remember when listing Flagstaff homes for sale in the fall to be sure to use bold autumn colors to add seasonal appeal, selling a property is really selling an idea or image.
The selling of a home can often be a very lengthy process for all parties involved. From attracting buyers to scheduling meetings and finalizing offers. The time it takes to sell a home can be daunting. Fall is usually a period when people are getting back on schedule after a hectic summer season and are able to complete work quicker. This can apply to buyers as well as appraisers, professional inspectors, contractors and notaries that will need to be hired to complete a sale.
Fall buyers are very serious buyers that are ready to commit to a purchase and are well researched on market conditions. With winter right around the corner, buyers are focused on ensuring that they are established in their new home prior to the holidays and snowy.
