As the summer winds down, people are now revving up their routines before school and fall begins. Autumn will soon be in full swing and Realtors are ready to assist buyers and sellers with their respective needs.

One of the benefits of selling a home in the fall is the weather, whether it is the comfortable temperature and blue skies of September or the slight crisp change in temperature and leaves bursting with color in October and November. As well, flourishing landscapes and fall decorations that adorn homes and town centers create an enticing curb appeal for prospective buyers. There are reasons why northern New Jersey is so alluring, and the changing of seasons is one of them.

The fall is also a good time to get a comparative marketing analysis (CMA) provided by sales associates which allows the homeowner to receive pertinent information about their home value based on other houses with similar attributes. Homeowners will still benefit from the strong spring market with good comps for their homes which is yet another benefit to selling in autumn.

The fall may also be a great time to refinance your home given the high sales comps in the area. You can visit and use the calculator to see if refinancing your home is beneficial for you, or speak to a specialized mortgage representative to assist you.

The fall is also an active time where some companies begin to hire again after managers come back from vacation and job postings become more prevalent.  When a person gets a new position, listing a home may be a priority.  Towns such as Maplewood are an ideal place to commute and live due to NJ Transit’s midtown direct line and the close proximity to major highways.

Maplewood, South Orange and Milburn/Short Hills are ideal places to live. With exceptional schools with high ratings according to GreatSchools, and a calendar of robust town and leisure activities, homeowners tend to upsize their homes to take advantage of the many benefits these towns offer.

For those who are considering selling their home, definitely take advantage of the inviting fall weather, visit the high-caliber schools that will be in session, and take a tour of these beautiful towns with a professional sales associate who knows the market and what these towns and villages offer.
