I am spreading joy this Fall and Winter and also building my email list. I am raffling off a free home inspection for every 20 new potential clients that join my email list between now and the end of the year. Each raffle winner gets a free home inspection (useful for buyers and sellers) as long as they complete a transaction with me within the next 2 years. Tell anyone who plans to buy, sell or invest in the next couple of years and they will thank you.
Also, don’t feel any pressure to wait two years. Spring market is over and every buyer and seller should consider the advantages of making deals in the Fall and Winter. Sellers are happy in the winter since buyers tend to be more qualified, serious and decisive. There is less wear and tear on homes from buyer traffic; and buyers have less home options to choose from so your property can truly stand out.
Buyers also have advantages in the Fall and Winter. Sellers tend to be more serious about selling and prices and negotiations tend to be more efficient. Buyers also have less competition from other buyers.
Everyone is more agreeable if they want to complete a move before the holidays. If you are not the ultra-competitive type, buying this time of year might work for you.
