The Perks of Buying a Home in the Fall

posted on September 18th, 2015 | filed under: Buying Strategies, For Sale, Good People, Loving the Lifestyle, Market Update

2111366319_3d0064aef6_zAs we close out a summer marked by rising home prices and limited supply, we’re conditioned to expect the inevitable end-of-season slowdown. But the change of season doesn’t mean activity drops off completely – in fact, fall’s arrival presents opportunities for homebuyers, in part due to a “back-to-school mentality,” according to a survey by ERA Real Estate.

If you’re a prospective homebuyer, tap into that renewed sense of motivation – and consider the following perks – while hunting for a home this fall.

You can enjoy year-end tax breaks. Buying before the year’s out allows fall homebuyers to take advantage of tax breaks such as the mortgage interest and property tax deductions. “There are certain deductions that can be claimed by homeowners only,” explains Founder John Gregory. “If you have taken out a homeowner’s loan, consider these deductions as Uncle Sam’s gift to you.” To learn more about the tax benefits available to homeowners.

Trends At A Glance 9.15.15Market Update

Homeowners caught in affordability squeeze, are staying put, REALTOR® survey finds.

LOS ANGELES (August 26) – Even with rising home prices over the past few years, many homeowners who have considered selling are deciding not to because they are caught in an affordability squeeze that is compounded by a lack of inventory, according to findings from the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.) “2015 Survey of California Homeowners.”

More than one-third (35%) of homeowners have considered selling their home in the past year, and of that share, about two-thirds (64%) are reluctant to sell because they are finding they can’t afford the home they really want, the survey found.

C.A.R.’s Survey of California Homeowners also found that more than half (59%) of homeowners have not seriously considered selling their home in the past year, with more than half (60%) saying their current home will be their retirement residence. For those who have been in their home 15 years or more, that figure rises to 70%. But for others (44%), the affordability crunch, higher property taxes, and home prices are keeping them in their current home.
