The 4th quarter of the year is considered the slowest by most real estate experts, and that little fact resonates with home sellers.
There are a few facts that are worth pointing out though.
1) Home buyers who look at homes for sale in the 4th quarter of the year are deadly serious about buying a home, so it does not take as many showings to find that right buyer.
2) The 4th quarter is a very busy quarter for employers to move employees, and these are decisive home buyers to be certain.
3) There is less competition in the 4th quarter because there are fewer homes for sale.
No, the 4th quarter may not be as busy, but many home sellers like the idea of having 3 buyers see their home in November while receiving an acceptable offer, rather than have 11 see their home in April in order to receive that offer.
So do not discount the 4th quarter as a viable time to have a home for sale. It may prove to be the best decision a seller can make!

"I couldn't have found a better realtor. I looked for a house for more than 6 months and after having a handful of houses swept out from under me within hours, when she found this house she contacted me within minutes, had all the paper work filled out and the phone number ready to call the minute we looked at the house. The market in Austin is vicious and frustrating and Tammy did everything in her power to lighten the load on my shoulders and fight for the house I really wanted. My house was on the market for less than 3 hours!! I would highly recommend Tammy Spracklen to anyone looking in the Austin area!! In fact I think you would be disappointed with anyone else!"
