Helping you NET the home of your dreams.

Fall, Holidays Still Prime Season for Sellers

Fall officially began Sept. 23, but that doesn’t mean you should scrap plans for selling your home this year. In fact, October, November and December can actually be good months to sell. Now is the time to plan for it if you’ve even considered putting your home on the market.

For decades, the conventional thinking was that if you missed the spring selling season, you missed the boat. Once summer rolls around and school starts shortly after that, families are more settled, the thinking went, and therefore less inclined to pick up and move (unless a job change or other circumstance forced them).

Also, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and the January cold snaps follow the start of school. In the past, no one wanted to take time to drive around looking at homes when all of this was happening.

Things have changed. Today’s buyers aren’t necessarily timing a home purchase or sale around school schedules because people tend to settle down later in life and live longer. The result is urban expansion; more single, first-time and millennial buyers as well as baby boomers looking to buy (and sell). Also, a lot of home shopping, at least initially, happens online and via apps. Buyers don’t have to take time out of their busy schedules to drive around — they can just sit down with a tablet on the couch.

As a result of the Internet, our hectic schedules and mobile lifestyles, the fall months are no longer a real estate dead zone. True, spring is still the busiest time overall. But there’s plenty of action happening after Labor Day through Christmas, enough to make it worth your while to put up the ‘For Sale’ sign.

Here’s why.

Buyers are still out there

As mentioned, buyers never stop looking. A serious buyer is looking at new homes online 24/7, even through the holidays. If the right home appears, they’re ready to move. In fact, it could be that buyers in the early winter months are even moremotivated than buyers in warmer months because there is less going on. They have fewer distractions and are laser focused on finding a home.

There’s less competition

A lot of people still buy into the old thinking that real estate slows to a crawl by October and virtually stops from Thanksgiving until, say, Valentine’s Day. As a consequence, many potential sellers figure there’s no reason to go on the market during these months. So they wait for spring. And that’s good news for you, because less inventory on the market = less competition for you.

Even January can be a good time to sell

By now you’re probably thinking about all the disruptions to your life that selling a home during the holidays might cause. For instance, you’re in the middle of wrapping Christmas gifts when your agent calls. She wants you to leave the house right away so she can bring a motivated buyer by for another look.

If the potential for disruptions concerns you, put your home on the market in January. Inventory will still be very tight, and there will still be buyers out there looking. In fact, with the holidays over, there may even be more buyers out in January than in December. Also, January buyers may be more motivated. They’ve started doing their taxes and realize they need to buy. Or they’ve set a New Year’s resolution to buy a home within the next 12 months.

Ultimately, as we enter the final quarter of 2014, there will no doubt be plenty of motivated buyers in the market, searching for just the right home at a time when there’s less inventory. Doesn’t that sound like a good time to sell?

    Thanks for helping me to obtain new strategies about computer systems. I also have the belief that one of the best ways to help keep your notebook computer in prime condition is a hard plastic case, as well as shell, that will fit over the top of the computer. Most of these protective gear tend to be model unique since they are made to fit perfectly in the natural covering. You can buy them directly from owner, or through third party sources if they are for your mobile computer, however not all laptop will have a covering on the market. Yet again, thanks for your tips.

    One thing I’d prefer to say is always that before acquiring more pc memory, look into the machine in to which it would be installed. When the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, a memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Putting in over this would purely constitute any waste. Make sure one’s mother board can handle this upgrade quantity, as well. Good blog post.

  51. old computer equipment disposal

    Thanks for the recommendations you have shared here. Yet another thing I would like to express is that computer memory needs generally go up along with other developments in the technological innovation. For instance, whenever new generations of processors are brought to the market, there’s usually a related increase in the scale preferences of both computer memory as well as hard drive space. This is because the program operated through these processor chips will inevitably boost in power to benefit from the new engineering.

  52. computer equipment disposal reading

    The things i have seen in terms of computer memory is that often there are features such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must match up the technical specs of the motherboard. If the computer’s motherboard is rather current and there are no main system issues, updating the memory literally requires under sixty minutes. It’s on the list of easiest laptop upgrade processes one can picture. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

  53. old computer equipment recycling

    Interesting blog post. Some tips i would like to make contributions about is that laptop or computer memory is required to be purchased if the computer can’t cope with what you do with it. One can mount two RAM boards containing 1GB each, as an illustration, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should look for the manufacturer’s documentation for own PC to be sure what type of ram is essential.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas here. The other element is that if a problem develops with a laptop motherboard, persons should not have some risk of repairing that themselves for if it is not done right it can lead to permanent damage to the entire laptop. Most commonly it is safe just to approach your dealer of a laptop for any repair of motherboard. They have got technicians who’ve an experience in dealing with notebook motherboard difficulties and can have the right prognosis and execute repairs.

    Thanks for the suggestions you have provided here. Yet another thing I would like to convey is that computer memory demands generally increase along with other developments in the know-how.

This is because the application operated through these processors will inevitably rise in power to use the new engineering.
