Buying A Home In The Autumn Months Is Smart: Here's Why

Spring and summer and traditionally the busiest months in residential real estate sales, but many smart buyers know that Fall can be a really great time to buy.  Here are some of the reasons why.

There's less competition for homes

Competition for available homes to buy drops off in the Fall, a time many people consider to be off-season. But there are still homes for sale. In fact, there is often just as much inventory as during the 'busy' months. There is always new inventory, and many serious sellers will reduce the price of their homes once activity wanes. 

This fact may put you in a great position to negotiate. Many serious sellers are very motivated to sell before the holidays.
