We have seemingly reached the end of our summer, and we don’t need a date on the calendar to let us know here in the Pacific Northwest weather. Our constant companion the rain has returned to the region to welcome us into fall.
I don’t dread the rain and cold, I am a sweater, coat, and boots kind of woman; but I must admit, I do like seeing the sun a time or two during the fall and winter. But, don’t let the disappearance of the sun stop your spirit of motivation! The coming of fall tends to start the hibernation process for folks, particularly in this region.
Don’t let the weather derail the great plans you put in place during the spring and summer. Continue to work on the to-do lists you have created and the long and short-term goals you put in place, including buying a home! The fall/winter brings a slowing in the market people don’t like to buy homes in the rain and on shorter days, but this is the perfect opportunity for buyers as there is less competition in the marketplace. Sellers, you too have an opportunity during this time to sell your property without the worry of inflated offers a lender may have a problem with or aggressive buyers and agents. This is the time when the savvy buyer and seller thrive considering the current Pacific Northwest weather, so give us a call and make the fall/winter your time to act!
