Why Fall Is Actually a Great Time to Sell Your Home

It’s a common belief for home sellers in Austin that once school starts up again and fall rolls around, it’s not a good time to try and list their home. In a sense, they’ve “missed” the summer selling season. Today we’ve brought in Craig Gilson, our newest Lancashire Group team member, to help debunk this myth.

Historically speaking, we do see a slight dip in inventory entering the month of September. However, we also see a steady stream of buyers that are still out there that are still looking for homes. Data shows that there are still a strong number of homes that are both under contract and being sold.

As a seller, you have to remember that the buying pool is larger than just families concerned with moving to the area to coincide with the school year. The last few years, Austin has experienced considerable economic growth. There are many different industries that are thriving in the metropolitan area. This dynamic side of the supply curve shows you that the selling season includes more than just the summer months.

Now is a great time to sell your home.

This actually proves that, with low inventory and a supply of buyers still creating demand, now is a great time to sell your home. Our market is diverse, and has seen a large amount of new residential development in the investor pool. This investor pool will propel the supply side well into the fall season.

When it comes to listing your home and getting it sold quickly, timing is everything. There is no better time than now.
