It’s that time of year again! The leaves are changing, the days are getting shorter, crops are off and you’re getting ready for winter. But as everyone else starts to put equipment in the shop for another year and pull their property off the market on account of it being a “slow-selling season”, Hansen Land Brokers sees opportunities everywhere!
Yes, the fall may not typically be considered as the selling season, but you might be surprised at how many people are interested in buying land during this time.
Harvest is over and landowners are thinking about next spring seeding and how to add to their land base.
So why should you put up your land for sale this fall? In over 30 years in the business, we’ve seen a couple of real estate trends emerge during the fall season. That said, here are a few reasons that might convince you:
#Limited Inventory And Less Competition
As summer comes to an end, some potential buyers begin looking for new properties as they prepare things for winter. Since inventory typically decreases in the fall—and many land sellers take their property off the market—you’ll have a much better chance of getting your land sold quickly.
#More Interest From Qualified Buyers
In addition to limited inventory, there is also often an increase in buyer interest during this time because people are looking ahead for new land to seed or seeking grass for pasture for the upcoming year. If they’re already hunting for properties when it’s time to put yours up for sale, you’re more likely to get the attention of an interested buyer.
Many sellers can also benefit from negotiating during this time since there are fewer properties on the market and buyers don’t want to risk losing out on their dream property. If your land is in a desirable location for prospective buyers you’ll have a terrific chance of getting it sold for the best possible price.
You might also consider selling your land in the fall because this is typically when people are most motivated to make changes to their operations and property before winter arrives. If there’s anything that needs improvements or fertilizer, fall is typically the second-best time to do it.
If you’re willing and able to make repairs before selling your property, this might encourage more people with a greater range of budgets to consider buying your land. Most buyers are looking for an easy transition by purchasing land prior to when things are busy in farming and ranching in the spring.
