Why the Fall is the best time to sell Real Estate!

If you're looking to sell your house this fall in  Orange County/Riverside or San Diego Counties I do have some good news for you. We did some  research  in which we wanted to share with you. We couldnt do every city in Southern California so we picked a cluster in Southern Orange County. In the cities of San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, San Juan Capistrano the total number of listed homes in September were anywhere from a 10% to 28% less than in May of this year. Yes, inventory is low but this makes it even better for you as a seller. Ask yourself, how much more desirable is your house going to be to buyers if there are  fewer of them for them to pick from? I have always had great success buying and selling real estate in September through December. Homes in my opinion sell faster and in many cases have multiple offers which allows you the seller and opportunity to have the purchase price bid up. Below are a few more reasons why I feel fall is a great time to list and sell your home.

 

1. Demand is still strong. 

 

As I mentioned in the paragraph above, demand is still very high  for homes in Riverside Orange and San Diego Counties. I just chose San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo, San Juan Capistrano to give you a quick snapshot.So demand is still very high and Supply is even lower than the spring. You do the math.

 

 

2. The process, generally speaking will be quicker and less stressful for both sides. Why? Mortgage brokers, escrow officers, title reps, title companies are not as busy at this point in the season and therefore your home or escrow will probably get more one-on-one attention as compared to the busy spring.

 

 

3.Get off the fence

 

I've spoken to hundreds of potential home sellers in the past 7 months who are on the fence about selling. In my opinion I do not see home prices skyrocketing anytime soon. If you're waiting for big money or huge gains I don't see it happening. Take your money and run, enjoy your life and do the things that you've been planning on doing for the past year, which made you think about selling your home in the first place.
