5 Tips for Moving or Decluttering Your Home This Fall

Updated: May 14


Warm shades of orange and gold, soup weather, pumpkins on the porch, and packing up your house to move. All of these things bring to mind the wonderful season of autumn. Ok, maybe the last one doesn't... but maybe it should! So you have found yourself ready to buy a home in the fall. Maybe you are relocating for a new job, or maybe you've decided it's time to upsize or downsize. Whatever the reason for your move, you've picked the right time to do it! Here are a few advantages to home buying in the fall:

  1. Moving companies are often slower in the fall, so they are more likely to have cheaper pricing or even negotiate on pricing for the big move.

  2. Sellers are motivated to sell! Many sellers are hoping to get their home sold before November and December holidays hit. Also, if the home you are eyeing has been on the market for a few months, they sellers may be over it and ready to negotiate for a great price.

  3. There is less competition in the fall. Inventory is still really great during fall months, but many folks turn their attention to school, sports, and other family obligations, so you are likely to have fewer buyers out there with competing offers.

  4. There are some tax advantages to closing on your new home before the end of the year. Deductions like mortgage interest, property tax, and closing costs can add up to significant savings!

  5. Stock your new home using year end, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday sales. There are huge savings to take advantage of during the fall months. You'll be able to find deep discounts on appliances, furniture, and decor.
