Why Fall Might Be The Best Time To Call Me To Buy A Home

A lot of people think the best time to buy a house is during the Spring market.

And, it is…

…in the sense that more houses are listed for sale in the Spring. But, there’s also a heck of a lot more buyers trying to buy those listings.

The thing is, some of the houses listed back in the Spring don’t end up selling. (Usually just because they were overpriced.)

Now, it isn’t like new listings don’t happen in the Fall. There’s always new listings coming on the market. But it’s not like, just because it’s Fall and not Spring, prices are necessarily going to fall. In other words, new listings aren’t likely to list for a lot lower than you would have seen in the Spring.

However, the homeowners who did list back in the Spring, are much more likely to be anxious (perhaps even desperate) to sell their home. They’ve created their own problem…they missed the boat by pricing too high.

Which is great news for you, if you’re looking to buy a home:

  • Less competition. (Many buyers stop looking at this time of year…for no good reason.)
  • Motivated sellers. (They’re sick of being on the market, and wondering why nobody bought their house.)

But it isn’t always easy to find those listings. They don’t wave a white flag, or lower their price to some ridiculous amount everyone would notice. If only it were that easy…
Just because someone listed their home back in the Spring doesn’t mean they’ll be all that negotiable.

There are certain things a great real estate agent will know to look for.

And I love rolling up my sleeves and finding the ones we can most likely negotiate the best deals on.

So, got anything you want me to roll up my sleeves and look for? Real estate deals won’t just fall in your lap, but I can certainly help you find one this Fall. Call me today and we can begin talking.

Want another reason to buy a home in the Fall?

You can take advantage of year-end sales to outfit your home!

Hardly anybody buys a home who doesn’t want (or need) to make improvements, however small. So why not coordinate your purchase with sales on items you’ll need? According to Consumer Reports, September is an ideal time for buying carpet and paint. In October lawn mowers go on sale, and the same goes for appliances and cookware in November.


New House Cool… The Adventure

Today in the New House Cool Adventure Chapter, I checked out what is required for an address to begin receiving mail and a mail box. Since we do have an address – although not recognized by the great and powerful Google yet and not getting mail makes it feel so far away from being real yet. Not many people I know have had to do this, and I learned a lot. Thinking of getting the larger size of mail box when the time comes. What do you think? Know about any cool or interesting mail boxes that I need to know about??



Wake up it’s 4am!

What makes you sooooo happy to be woken from your slumbers at 4am? When both your babies need you (nursing and bad dream) and your heart jumps and rejoices.

Listening to my infant wiggle and fall back asleep after nursing and watching my big girl reset and snuggle with her Ellie’s on the monitor before she drifts back to sleep puffs my heart full of joy. While waiting for them to fall asleep again I read a friend’s new blog (Jamie lovetheseBunns.wordpress.com that’s you) – It made me think me of how God must respond to our middle of the night cry outs … literally jumping out of bed at four in the morning, with hugs and kisses cuz He’s so happy to be there to comfort and love.

So many things in parenting have shown me more and more the extra efforts that My Savior goes for me. The frustration that builds and yet the parental love the overwhelms. He’s not just a big white haired old guy with a long beard on a throne for me anymore. He’s the loving Creator, impressed and in awe of His own creation most days- and even though there are some days He probably wants to squish us all it’s the purist of loves that won’t ever let that happen. Who in the same second when He may have to scold us, He’d also take a bullet for us and give his life so that we may live… parenting reminds me so much of the love of Christ I’m blessed to have the reminder.

Ps They won’t be little forever. And I want them to call out for me for sooo many many many more years. #mommyismyfavoritename #momfallsasleeplast #Godsloveisbigger

Pss don’t worry if there are errors or run on sentences, it’s early and I’m tired. #yawn

Today: I showed up

Today, I took a leap. I took a step and it took a little bit of courage.

I showed up today.

Instead of thinking and saying I want to … I did. It honestly didn’t take a lot and it wasn’t the most important thing in the world – but it was important to me.

I showed up, for myself – when I wasn’t sure if I could.

I’m transitioning and adjusting my outlook and world. I’m excited.

Just Checking In

This post is gonna be filled with a lot of honesty, so if you can’t handle it just go away. 🙂

So here’s the honest, I have been pretty, very, super depressed lately. My life has seemed to be in utter chaos for quite a while now. LOTS of big life changes/challenges have been occurring one after another it seems and it has been very difficult for me to keep up… at all. Let alone keep up in a healthy way.

Spiritually, Emotionally and Physically I have been so tired and drained that I haven’t been able to do much for myself or for my family. I’ve been just existing. And I’ve been lucky to have a family that has continued to support and love me. It has been good to be able to have people that I can be sad with and not have to explain everything. Cuz it’s not like I can explain it, that’s kinda what depression does, it sneaks up and makes you feel like everything you were hoping for and every goal you’ve been working for is wrong. Like you’ve been going the wrong direction for months, years or eve your whole life.

But today something changed, just a little tiny bit, today I almost felt like myself again. I am still tired. I am still exhausted and drained. But I actually had some brain power, some mental energy that almost made me feel like me. My inner voice had something to say – and I felt like if I didn’t grab a pen or a keyboard to get some of it down, it might go away again.

Today it wanted to say – I’m still here and even though I’ve been quiet, I’m gonna be ok.
