5 Reasons to List Your Home This Fall
A lot of people think of spring and summer as the prime selling season for real estate.  While these seasons are a great time to sell, fall can be an even better time to add your home to the list of Brighton homes for sale. During the fall, the weather cools, summer vacations are over, and the kids are back in school, creating a much more relaxed atmosphere for all. Our REALTORS® are passionate about helping clients sell their homes.  Here are five reasons to consider listing your home for sale this fall: 

  1. Demand is High
    Market conditions are in your favor as a seller. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), buyer traffic is high amid healthy job growth, driving home buying demand. Meanwhile, inventory – (homes listed for sale) – remains low. That means that demand is outpacing supply, which is good for home sellers, increasing the odds that their homes will sell quickly and at their listing prices.

Escape the Rental Trap
Are you caught in the rental trap? If you are dreaming of buying your own home instead of renting, you might be unable to see a clear way to get there with the ever-rising cost of rental payments. 

So how does one escape this trap to begin paying off their own mortgage instead of your landlord's current mortgage? It might not be as hard as you think. Our REALTORS® offer these four ways to start saving to buy one of our Brighton homes for sale.

  1. Work to reduce your current housing bills
    Ideally, you should be spending no more than 30 percent of your income on rent. If your current rental is eating up a higher percentage of your income than it should, consider a less expensive place. While downgrading may mean living with fewer conveniences and/or in a less desirable area, it could help you save for a down payment on a home of your own. Lowering your rent-to-income ratio can also help you create a more stable financial profile for yourself, which can be helpful when it comes time to apply for a mortgage loan.
