We "fell" for this New Jersey cottage

By Sabra Morris | Sept. 1, 2018

For me, fall is the ultimate season of change. The beginning of September ushers kids back to school, while the end of the month begins a turning of the leaves. A welcome chill sets in and the jackets come on. All in all, I love it, and so does my family.

And while we’re on the subject of change, if you’re thinking of making an even bigger life change (ahem, moving) fall might just be the right time to do it. While spring is still thought of as the most popular time to list, there are advantages to listing in the fall, according to a recent article by The Motley Fool. One such advantage? Lack of competition (due to fewer homes on the market). This could enable you to list your home for a higher price, especially if your market consists of at least one buyer who needs to move immediately.

Even if you’re merely thinking about listing, I’d encourage you to hop over to our savings calculator to discover how low your commission-free listing rate would be, and how much you stand to save by listing with us. Wherever you are in your homeownership journey this season, we’re here for you.
