It’s September and Homebuyer Demand is Greater Than Pumpkin Spice Demand

Home buying has been on the rise over the past few months, with record-breaking sales powering through the market in June and July. Buyers are actively purchasing homes, and the momentum is continuing into the fall. It is, however, becoming harder for buyers to find homes to purchase. If you’ve been thinking about selling your house, the coming weeks might just be the timing you’ve been waiting for.

What Does This Mean for Sellers?

If you were thinking about putting your house on the market in the spring, but decided to wait due to the health crisis, it may be time to make your move. Buyers are in the market right now. With so few homes available to purchase, homeowners today are experiencing more bidding wars, creating an optimal time to sell.

Is This Trend Going to Continue?

As CNBC notes, there are no signs of slowing buyer demand this fall:

“The usual summer slowdown in the housing market is not happening this year. Buyers continue to show strong demand, spurred by the new stay-at-home world of the coronavirus and by record low mortgage rates.”

 

Home Tips

Curtains should be 2.5 to 3 times the width of the window. So if you’re doing two panels, each should be 1.25 to 1.5 time the window width. Buy a rod that’s 20 inches wider than your window so it extends 10 inches on either side. Your window will seem much wider than it really is!
