The Fall can be a great time to sell OR buy.
Escape the Spring Craziness:
Because there are fewer listings than in the Spring, there is less competition for the sellers and for the buyers.
There may be less buyers but the ones that are buying tend to be more seriously looking. These buyers want to buy and get it DONE, before the holiday season sets in. Often corporate moves take place in the fall.
Ideal closing date:
You can still close in early December and enjoy the holidays in your newhome. Even a January or February closing date will still enable you to enjoy the Spring and Summer in your new home
Sellers don't have to worry about having their gardens weeded and the lawn freshly cut, although it is a good idea to have the leaves raked.
For Buyers and Sellers, it is easier to book movers, unlike the May 24th weekend or even worse July 1 !!
Interior climate test:
When viewing properties, it is a good time to see how the home feels inside and if there are any furnace or insulation issues.
My partner and I were interested in relocating from downtown Toronto to the Dundas area, but we were in no rush to move. We knew that we wouldn’t budge until we found our dream home. Over seven months, Hope helped us to refine our search by showing us a wide variety of homes in different neighbourhoods, from historic stone cottages to mid-century modern bungalows. Hope was just as inquisitive as we were, and she made the process of house-hunting thoroughly enjoyable. When we finally found our new home — a renovated ranch on the Escarpment brow — Hope guided us through the sales process expertly, making us feel confident in our decision. We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent!
Hope Terry was exceptionally helpful and supportive. Selling a home you love is not easy and she, with a sense of compassion and grace, helped me understand the details of process. She answered all my questions, provided accurate advise and was honest and efficient in her replies. I would highly recommend her to you. She is sophisticated, intelligent and knows the business. She sold my home in less than a week and helped me negotiate all the details of the sale. Thank you so my Hope — I greatly appreciate your professionalism.
