7 Reasons to Wait for Fall to Buy a New House

If you have plans to upsize or downsize from your current home, it may be smart to let the hot summer sales season pass and start your search this fall.


According to Trulia.com, there are several reasons why buying in the fall is a better financial move. You can check out all of them by reading  7 Best Things About Buying a House in the Fall. We’ve also provided a preview of the top three reasons here.


  1. Less Competition: You are less likely to get in a bidding war with other buyers, and end up paying more than your original offer, when you opt out of the busy summer market.
  2. More Attention from Your Real Estate Agent: It’s no secret that agents have less time to give you the one-on-one attention you need to find your dream home during the summer. Shopping in the fall allows you to be a bigger priority to your agent.
  3. Take Advantage of End-of-Year Sales: Moving to a new house means you will likely need to buy some things to make it home. In September and November in particular, home improvement items like carpet, paint, lawn mowers, and appliances go on sale.


Now that you know all the reasons why it’s better to wait for the fall to begin shopping around for your new house, you have plenty of time to get your existing home ready for the market.
