As a Realtor in Ontario, Canada there are many reasons people don’t pay enough attention to for listing in the fall!
Firstly, staging with fall and winter holidays can pull on people’s heart-strings and really make them feel at home. Spruce up your decorations with fresh pumpkins and don’t forget to emphasize the natural beauty of the changing coloured trees and bushes in your yard. You can list with spring/summer photos as well as gorgeous fall ones.
Secondly, KIDS ARE IN SCHOOL! This is a huge plus for families. You can make you showings in the day if need be and won’t have to try to chase kids around at home to clean up every time there is a showing. For an open house weekend the fall is still a great time to go up to Muskoka for cottaging and enjoy the drive while your Realtor hosts a pumpkin-spice Open House!
Thirdly, there are less options for buyers – and this means your house gets more coverage. Also, the buyers that have been looking since the spring and summer and have lost out on other houses in the heat of London’s market may be finally willing to get realistic about their price point and compromise on their needs & wants list!
