Most people tend to sell their houses during the warmer seasons, but there’s great potential in the fall! Selling your house during the fall months has many advantages. Let’s go over them.
More Serious Buyers
Since most people tend to sell their homes during the summer and spring months, buyers have plenty of options to choose from. This causes buyers to hold off on placing offers until they find the perfect house they’re looking for. If you sell your house in the fall, you’re far more likely to receive serious offers. This is due to the pressure that buyers feel to make a final decision before winter comes around. You’ll find that those who place offers will strive to close the deal on buying your home.
Many sellers try to sell their homes by fall as most buyers search for homes in the warmer months. So when September comes around, the housing market shrinks. This gives you a massive advantage as you’ll be competing with fewer competitors. Not only will you receive serious offers from buyers, but you’ll also have more bargaining power to close a deal by the end of the year.
Various Buyer Demographics
Most parents search for homes in the spring, while millennials, those who’ve decided to move out, and employees who need to relocate tend to search later in the year. They do so because real estate rates are lower, and the market cools down. So, if you sell your house in the fall, you’ll be bargaining with buyers with different demographics who feel pressured to find a house quickly. You’re bound to meet buyers who can’t wait to close a deal with you.
After a harsh winter, your house could use some home improvements to have it looking as attractive as it did before. You should also make sure everything is in excellent if not perfect condition, such as your air conditioner and heater. During the warmer months, you can take time to complete these home improvements and repairs as you prepare to sell your home in the fall. The advantage here is that you can value your house much higher than you normally would. And since there are fewer competitors and more serious buyers, you’re sure to close a deal!
We were lucky to have found Behrooz for our first-time home buying experience. Behrooz was very helpful in our search for a condo in Griffintown, Montreal. He is very knowledgeable of the area and gave us good advice regarding the offers we make. He explained each step in the the whole process very clearly and was quick to respond to all inquiries we had.
I interviewed several real estate agents to buy and sell my home and chose Behrooz on he's promise of excellent customer service and added value. He was most helpful and patient during the entire process. He listens well and is very collaborative in his approach. I am beyond happy with the outcome and would recommend him!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Behrooz. He loves what he is doing and he is always on the positive side of things. He is organized, detail oriented and available to answer to my questions even after the sale. If you are looking for a proactive real estate agent, I strongly recommend him.

Behrooz sold our house during one of the most challenging times imaginable: the COVID-19 pandemic and we were in a rush to leave the country. That in itself should say a lot. He found us buyers who were ready to make a reasonable offer after 2 weeks in the market. In a highly uncertain market, this saved us a lot of time, stress and expense. Rather than pressuring us to accept the deal he worked with the buyer's agent to bring up the price to where we would be happy. We feel extremely lucky to have selected him to represent us in this sale of our property.
