Fall is almost here in Rhode Island!

Farm in Fall After Labor Day in Rhode Island, although it’s not the actual end of summer, we all feel like it’s coming soon. It may be 90 degrees and yes I believe we broke a record, but fall is coming and we know it. The days are getting shorter quickly and a few leaves have turned. School has begun.  In a couple of weeks, summer will be gone. Maybe a couple of warm days will last into December, here and there, but the basic “feeling” of summer will be past. I for one welcome the fall days and it’s probably my favorite season here in New England.  It’s simply a beautiful time of year. The leaves are gorgeous, the air is crisp and everything feels clean. Being a Realtor, means that the buyer frenzy may calm down a bit and I look forward to that as well.  This year, in a certain price point in Rhode Island, houses have been flying off the market. When representing buyers, I have found that you need to be first and come in strong in order to even be in the running.   This is by far a Sellers market and after the last 6 years of being a Buyers market, some people are slow to convert.   Sellers seem to know as they price their homes higher and higher, but buyers are not realizing until it’s too late that they have lost their chance.  In the fall, it is not as rushed as in the spring and summer and that is because there are fewer homes to actually view!  If you didn’t find your dream home yet, you might want to change some of your criteria.  Sellers, if you did not sell during this market, you may want to take a second look at your price point. There are many buyers out there. They are online and moving and very aware of what is being offered. Your home is being compared to others and judgments are being made very quickly. Now that fall is coming, most buyers will want to lock in before it gets too cold, so don’t miss your opportunity.
