The Number 1 Reason Why Fall is a Great Time to Buy

Happy Fall! Fall foliage, apple picking, cooler temps, hot cider, spiced lattes, pumpkin everything.. It's my favorite time of the year and it's also a great time to buy a home in Silver Spring, MD beyond. I know, I know.. you hear that about every season but there are some very good arguments that speak for fall: 

*October is the month to get a deal - according to an analysis done by RealtyTrac 

*Less competition than spring/summer since many buyers time their purchase around the end and beginning of school years

*Motivated sellers who want to/need to move before the holidays and perhaps missed [out on] the spring/summer buyers 

Add some tax advantages to the mix that you won't get when you don't buy before the year ends (you can't deduct mortgage interest if you don't have a mortgage!) and fall is looking more and more like the best season to buy a house in Silver Spring and beyond. But there is one more reason - the number one reason in my opinion - why fall is a great time to buy...

It's because you are ready to buy and you want to buy and perhaps even need to buy. Being ready, willing and able to buy a house to call home (in time for the holidays!), to start building equity, to pay yourself instead of your landlord.. that is the number one reason why fall [or winter or summer or spring] is the best time of the year to buy a house! 

You should call me when the season is just right for you to buy your new home in Silver Spring or beyond, as an Accredited Buyer's Agent (that's what the mysterious ABR® stands for) I have taken additional classes, have gained in-depth knowledge and have made a commitment to excellence when it comes to representing buyers. After 14+ years of helping buyers find their dream home (during fall and winter and summer and spring) in Silver Spring & beyond I still love it like I did on day 1!

Good point Andrea Bedard with kids back in school many buyers may have settled down not looking as much as in the Summer.  I always felt there were less people buying in December with holiday events which also may mean less buyers competing for a deal. Thanks for sharing this.

It's always noticeable in my area Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI ! December tends to be a quieter month overall but I am always busy during the winter months. I tell my buyers that fall/winter are really the best times due to less competition ... plus [some] sellers are getting anxious to sell before the holidays.
