If you are a cynic, here are 7 reasons why buying a home in the fall may be a better choice.

Whether you have children or not, a home in a top-notch school district outshines those in lesser districts in resale retention and value making it an important factor and large consideration when investing in a home purchase. When considering a home in a school district, look at class sizes, standardized test scores, extra curricula’s offered, and the conditions of the buildings.
First time homebuyers may find the process of searching for the perfect home challenging, yet the tri-county area offers several excellent home buying opportunities. The growing metropolitan area is prime for first time homebuyers looking for exceptional value. Although, you might be tempted to go with the most affordable option in your budget or continue renting, it is helpful to spend the time to plan and look at the best option for you.
List Your Requirements
The process of buying a home can be emotional, so you’ll want to list out your most important home features and keep them with you when you are home shopping. For example, list out your minimum required square footage, the type of home that you want (condo, townhouse, single family home, multi-family building), neighborhood, location, kitchen and bathroom features. It is a good idea to be flexible with this list but it is important to have some direction in your search.
Thinking about the Long Term
Think about whether or not you plan on having children when deciding where to buy your home and your other long term goals. If you are thinking of having children, you will want to purchase a home in an area with a good school district and perhaps an area with other young families. If you plan on selling in a few years, make sure that you buy in an area on the upswing. The more that you prepare as a first time homebuyer, the better the chance that you will find the perfect house for you.
