6 Reasons to Sell this Fall

Jason Wilson Scarsdale NY Julia B. Fee Sotheby's International RealtyWhile fall leaves may signal cooler weather and the start of a new school year, it can also mean the right time for another change — by putting your property on the market. Yes, fall is a buyer’s market, with many eager, prospective homeowners looking to get settled in before the arrival of the holidays.


Westchester County has experienced a strong period of growth for 2012. According to Jason Wilson, host of “How’s the Market?” a local weekly real estate radio show on WFAS-AM 1230 and the brokerage manager of the Scarsdale brokerage of Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, there’s no better time to sell. “We’re in a recovery mode,” Wilson said. And, with the spring market starting earlier this year, 2012 is turning out to be a very different year in the real estate market altogether.

If this doesn’t convince you, here are six reasons why you shouldn’t delay in putting your property on the market now:

  1. Record low interest rates and low prices have created an opportunity for renters to take advantage of the tax deductions of owning a home
  2. With the record low interest rates, one has more purchasing power than next year
  3. The mortgage guidelines are supposed to tighten up more in 2013, which might reduce the availability of buyers for your home
  4. The Westchester selling season is up 349 more homes sold this year than last
  5. Real estate is trending to be a 12 month cycle this year with our mild winter and busy summer – it is no longer a spring selling season only. The fall market over the past several years has been a seller’s second chance to capture the buyers that have not purchased in the spring, as well as for new buyers that want to take advantage of the record low rates
  6. The impending 3.8% real estate tax for 2013 that may affect some transactions
