The spring market blooms right along with the flowers, but the fall market often dwindles with the leaves — but this slower pace is good for buyers. If you’re in the market for a new home, fall is a great time to pick up the pace, as homes that have been sitting on the market are prone to price drops and deal making. Sellers tend to put their homes on the market in the spring, often listing their homes too high right out of the gate. This could result in price reductions throughout the spring and summer months. Sellers have fewer chances to capture buyers after Labor Day. By October, you are likely to find desperate sellers and prices below a home’s market value.
