Buying A Home in The Fall Is Ideal for Some Families

I don’t know about you, but fall is one of my favorite seasons. From the changing leaves to the cool, crisp weather, what’s not to love about autumn? I also love fall because it’s one of the best times of the year to help families find their dream home.

If you’re thinking about moving, you may be teetering with the idea of waiting until 2024 to move forward. New year, new home, right? But with today’s historically low mortgage rates, buying now is definitely the wiser choice.

So, while you’re already planning to head to the pumpkin patch, drink hot apple cider, and host bonfire nights with friends, go ahead and add home buying to your fall to do list as well!

The benefits of buying in the fall

There are many perks to buying a home in the fall, especially when compared to other seasons. According to Realtor, nationally, the best time to buy a home in 2021 is early fall. October is ideal for home buying thanks to market conditions that heavily favor buyers.

Not only is inventory high, but home prices tend to dip below peak levels. And with demand waning, the market pace slows to a more manageable level. But what causes the seasonal slowdown? Schools play a huge role. Housing market activity is at its highest during the spring and summer months. As fall rolls around, a growing number of families looking to buy drops, mostly due to schooling. No one wants the hassle of moving mid-school year!

If homeownership is in your future, now is the time to take full advantage! Home searching during the fall all but guarantees:

  • Plentiful listings
  • A more manageable pace
  • More price reductions
  • Less competition
  • More negotiation opportunities

Buying during the offseason, especially in today’s red-hot market, is one of the best ways to find the perfect Tennessee home for you and your family!

Get cozy before the big holiday season

The big holiday season is right around the corner. Wouldn’t it be nice to get settled in your new home before Thanksgiving or Christmas rolls around? Talk about an amazing way to end the year!

There’s nothing more exciting than your first holiday in your new home. From decorating to cooking holiday meals, this is the best time of year to enjoy all of the best parts of owning a home! Being able to spend the holidays in your new home, surrounded by friends and family members, is one of the best ways to christen your home. there’s nothing better than filling your home with love, laughter, and plenty of good cheer.

Buying and moving in during the holiday season also means that the weather is still on your side. As we get closer to late November and December, Tennessee weather can be quite unpredictable. Imagine the hassle of moving with snow on the ground.
