Although it’s been a crazy market right now thanks to the pandemic, there are still some good things about heading into the Fall. Most of the time, the Springtime is when homeowners put their houses for sale, or potential home buyers look for their next house. However, the Fall is quickly approaching as one of the best times of the year to go house hunting. Check out some reasons below on why buying a house in the fall is a great idea.
Sellers Are Tired of Selling
For all of those sellers who put their house on the market during the prime selling months, and did not close, they are more likely to be motivated to get their house sold quickly. That means good news for you as they are probably more willing to negotiate price or come to agreements in order to get their house off the market. This can come in different ways whether a reduction of price, help with closings, etc. They would much rather work with an offer than wait until the next Summer to try selling it again.
When it comes to owning a home, and especially if you are a first-time homebuyer, there are tricks to make a dent in those mortgage interest and tax payments. If you are not aware, those are both things you can list in your deductions, and trust us, it’s worth it. Here’s why: even if you close on a home at the very end of December, you can still take these deductions for the whole year’s worth of your income.
As we previously mentioned, most in the real estate market and industry set their sights during the summer time. However, investigating the off-peak season for real estate can be beneficial. Sometimes there is even as much real estate inventory as there is during the prime months. If you are motivated to close on a house during this time of year, don’t be afraid to let the sellers know that as well. Giving them a range, such as before Thanksgiving, can work out in your favor.
