Should I List My Home During the Fall or Wait Until Spring?

Families with school-aged children prefer not to uproot their kids from their current district in the middle of a school year, forcing them to readjust to new scholastic surroundings. Also, unpredictable weather patterns tend to keep would-be buyers indoors and the impending holidays send most of us into overwhelm, making it near impossible to add another item to our “to-do” lists.

Before you resolve yourself to waiting until the spring to search for Roanoke homes or list yours on the Roanoke market, keep in mind that each area has its own distinct demographic and that when it comes to buying or selling your home, the rule is to pay attention to your area’s trendsetters. Roanoke is beautiful in the fall and we’re lucky to have a temperate climate, which gives shoppers extra time to stroll the streets while looking for their ideal neighborhood. Staging your home in the fall lends shoppers to imagine future Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas mornings, along with other cozy scenes that may elicit an urge to buy.

The “behind-the-scenes” of buying or selling a home isn’t often profiled on popular television shows, but choosing the right team to help you list your home or find a new home is paramount. As veterans in the Roanoke real estate market, the professionals at Performance Title and Settlement know how to navigate this process flawlessly.
