Summer has come to an end and you probably are thinking you've lost the opportunity to sell, and need to wait till next summer. But that's far from the truth! Although it's not as hectic and crazy with the swarm of buyers on the market, the fall season brings out the most serious of lookers. They are the pool of buyers that waited out the summer frenzy to find their perfect home in the fall, and you don't want to miss these buyers! They are ready to make a move, today! And selling in a slower period does not equate to less money. That's a misconception that home owners have based on untrue data that floats around. With the right agent, and your home being priced correctly, you can get a great deal selling your home during the fall season. And might actually prefer it. Here are the top 3 benefits to listing during the fall season.
1. Serious Buyers -Let's be honest, if buyers are out during the busy season, looking for homes, they are serious and ready to buy. Although the summer brings in a large crowd, that crowd contains a lot of people that are excited by the season, and fall into the "trend" of house hunting. These people end up not really being serious about the process, and tend to hold off for another time. If people are investing time to look during the fall season, they are more likely to be interested in actually buying your home, instead of touring it.
2. Less Competition -Selling in the fall isn't something many families can accomplish due to personal schedules. That's why a significant amount of homes get listed during the summer season. Which means that summer time brings in a lot of competition. Selling in the fall means the potential house next door that has slightly more perks that may have been listed during the summer, doesn't make your home sit stagnant, since everyone wanted your neighbor's house. It also doesn't devalue your home because of the house that could go up next door that could be under-priced in your neighborhood, and draw all of the attention.
With a slower season, you get dedicated attention to your property, which increases the chance of a sale.
3. Easier to Find Your Dream Home -Not only do you get to benefit from a slower season during the selling process, but you can also benefit on the buying side. With less competition on your dream house, you can get a better deal. The summer brings a lot of missed opportunities for buyers on their dream homes, because they go off the market instantly. This will give you the opportunity to get your home on the market and take your time to find the right one to resize into. A much calmer pace to the transaction will make it less stressful, and everyone all around happier. Don't feel rushed into buying a home overnight during the summer, it could turn into a headache. If you want a far more peaceful transaction, that has calmer pace, then selling during the fall is perfect for you.

Hello! I operate Resource Realty Group, a dynamic Real Estate Brokerage with experts specializing in every type of property in South Carolina. My firm is known as the "Little Big Guys", meaning our agents have the same tools and connectivity as larger firms with a much more potent marketing product to enhance the purchasing and selling experience. When our company lists your real estate we really get to know each property and emulate a potential buyer's shopping process to spotlight "must have" features. If you are buying, we use the same technique to identify perfect properties, verify physical and financial conditions, and negotiate a successful contract. Customized representation is a the fun part of our business and a critical element to ensure a pleasurable real estate experience for you.
My talents shine when it comes to investment properties, bank owned assets (REO), and gaining exposure for any properties we represent. I love complex transactions and creatively resolving issues to bring all parties together for one happy closing! Other than real estate, if it involves fishing, traveling, Pearl Jam, or sports, I'm interested in it.
I won't bore you with countless stats of all the successful transactions my company has achieved or the $100+ millions of closed sales data. That's in the past. Your next real estate transaction is now and myself or my team are here to listen to your needs and make them happen!

"My first attempt at purchasing a home was overwhelming and extremely stressful. I was working with a very inexperienced realtor and soon realized that if I ever wanted to find a home that I needed to do a complete overhaul. A close friend had purchased a home a few years back and recommended Tara Price of Resource Realty Group. She reached out to Tara on my behalf and my purchasing experience became a dream come true. As a first time home buyer I can truly say that Tara helped me to find the perfect home. She considered every detail and ensured that the process was a stress free experience for me. I am so thankful that I was able to work with Tara Price and RRG to purchase my very first home."
