In Real Estate, we often talk about there being two main busy seasons each year. The first one is typically from March to the end of June and the second one is from September to the end of October. Now that summer holidays are over, and kids are back in school, people are looking to move before the weather gets cold and they are too busy with the holiday season.
As a seller, this makes it a good time to have your property on the market as there is an increase in buyers looking for homes.
As a buyer, this is a good time to purchase a home as there is still a relatively large supply of inventory in the market, and there's more to choose from than there might be in the cold winter months ahead.
