As school starts back up I often am asked if it's best to wait until next year to sell.  Truthfully, buyers buy and sellers sell all year long!  If they didn't I could take a few months off, but in 28 years THAT has NEVER happened!

Often, listing inventories start to fall, and sellers see fewer properties competing for their buyer.  This year, with a forecast that includes a tick up in interest rates over the next 6-9 months, buyers will want to beat the increase.  A 1% increase in interest rates will impact a buyer's borrowing power by about 11%, and that's a pretty good motivator. 

The third quarter often sees more relocation buyers than the 2nd quarter.  Those buyers may need to be in their new position by the start of the new year, and will want to move at the semester break if they have children.

Fall can be a really nice time to shop for homes.  The weather is not too hot or too cold, and the fall colors will make your home look appealing to buyers.  There simply isn't a reason NOT to list your home for sale, or to consider coming off the market this time of year.
