Listing your place for sale can be bittersweet. While it can be fun and exciting to imagine your next chapter in life, it can be confusing to know when to list, since markets fluctuate constantly. Here are three reasons to list your home for sale now, and why you won't regret the effort later.

1. Nature Is Beautiful During Autumn

When the leaves start to shift into golden yellow, orange, and red colors, it is the perfect time to show your house. Autumn weather is typically mild and comfortable, while also yielding a homey feeling to any space. By showing your house during the fall, you can give people the chance to appreciate what you've done outdoors with the landscaping without it being too cold to explore your yard and outdoor space comfortably. 

To set the stage even more, consider lighting a few candles outside, putting out some torches, or even hanging string lights — so that potential buyers can imagine themselves lounging outdoors even on a cool autumn evening. 

2. Many People Don't Like Moving During Winter

When winter weather hits and the roads get icy, people won't want to trek across town to relocate all of their belongings. Moving during the winter may also entail pulling kids out of schools and introducing them to new areas, which can be a challenge for families. 

By listing your home for sale in the fall as opposed to the winter, you have a better shot at attracting families with children. Additionally, moving during the fall may be easier for your own family, since there is less of a chance of inclement weather. 

3. Relocate Before The Bulk of the Holiday Season 

Wouldn't it be nice to spend the holidays in your new place, as opposed to being stressed about keeping the house clean at all times for potential showings? If you are thinking about moving, sell now so you can find a new house and enjoy a different space during the holiday season.

If you are thinking about putting your home up for sale, don't take matters into your own hands. Always work with a seasoned real estate agent who is committed to getting top dollar for your property. Remember that some homes may take a little longer to sell than others in certain markets, so sit down with an agent, learn as much as you can about the local real estate culture, and don't be afraid to move forward.
