Note to Potential Buyers and Sellers:

Buyers: Fall is an ideal time to buy a home for those of you looking for negotiable sellers and less competition. Homes that are listed in the fall, or are still on the market come fall, experience less demand/fewer active buyers; therefore, sellers are often easier to work with because they simply want to close by end of year. If you’re interested in improving or starting your next home search, feel free to reach out!

Sellers: Today is the first day of Fall. Winter is coming, but there is still time to sell your home before the end of the fiscal year if you act quickly. Qualified buyers are still out there; the proper pricing and marketing strategies are key in this particular market. Contact me for your free home valuation.
