7 Benefits of Buying or Selling your Home in the Fall Season.





Many many advantages to selling or buying your home in the Fall Season - here goes...

1. Home for the Holidays - We all want to enjoy the holiday season with our loved ones in this cosy place we call home!  When you buy or sell in Fall - you are all settled in your new house before the holiday season.  Make lots of memories!

2. Less Competition - Home Sales peak in June/July.   As a result, there are fewer homes on the market in the Fall - which means less competition for the sellers!  Also, the buyers who are looking at this time are more motivated,  you won't get too many 'just looking' buyers.  Buyers tend to be less picky - because there aren't that many confusing choices.  We currently have a good inventory of homes in Chester county to choose from.

3. Tax break  - Property taxes and mortgage interest are deductions home buyers can claim on their taxes.  If you manage to close before Dec 31, you get a neat little tax write off.  As a seller - capital gains and home improvements are an important calculation and your closing costs will help determine those.  Consult your tax advisor regarding how you may take advantage of this.

4. Right Price - As a seller, your Realtor has a much easier job of finding comparable sales for appraisals.  There have been many recent sales to choose from - which is not true for a home listed in Early Spring.  So if you have a well maintained upgraded home, it can fetch the premium price you were hoping for.   Even for buyers - with less competition, you can avoid multiple bid scenarios and negotiate a good price on a home, because sellers don't want it sitting on the market thru the winter months.

5. Shopping season - The upcoming holiday season is the perfect time to get good deals and "Holiday Sales" to furnish and decorate your home.  You could get good bargains this tie of the year.  Watch out for those Black Friday sales ad have the goods delivered to your new home instead of paying to move them.

6. Condition of property - Most homeowners have done maintenance on the house during the Spring and Summer months.  Bug ticket additions like decks and patios, window, roof replacements possibly or regular maintenance like power washing, window screens, landscaping, painting etc have just been made to the home.  If you are a seller - home is ready to list with minimal work.  If you are a buyer, move in without a long to-do list!

7. Colors - Seasonal colors and smells make the home look really inviting!  Who doesn't like the rusts oranges and olives - warm crisp colors of this season!  The pumpkin spice smells of candles burning and pies in the oven - that's what home is all about!

ZILLOW REVIEW


  • We are so happy that we chose Bela as our listing agent. We interviewed several other 'top' agents in the area, but only Bela projected the confidence and showed the personal approach that we were looking for. In fact, the other agents were looking to list our home at $100K - $200K LESS than Bela  suggested and were obviously not willing to invest the time to market our house effectively.
We were absolutely blown away by the quality of the pics and video that Bela did for our home! Family and friends who saw them couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful our home looked and how attractively and professionally it was presented. We have no doubt that Bela's high-quality marketing played a major part in getting our home sold so quickly. Thanks Bela! Sal & Marion Del Conte

You guys rock! It was a personal best for me to get my sellers 200k more than what other competing "top agents" recommended! Wish you lots of love and wonderful times in your new home.

  • We met Bela last year at an open house, and knew immediately that she should be our Realtor. As a first home buyer, Bela made the home buying process extremely easy and stress free. She was always available whenever we had a question and took the time to explain my options each step of the way. She  was patient and really listened, never giving up until she found what we were looking for. We look forward to continuing to work with her, such as when we need the name and contact info. of any number of good, reliable service providers for the maintenance of our property. She is very knowledgeable and well-connected and we are so very grateful to have worked with her!

ZILLOW REVIEW



  • This review is for Bela Vora, who recently helped us purchase and close on a new home in Collegeville, PA. From the very outset, Bela understood our objectives and requirements and guided us seamlessly through the entire process of searching through varied database, home showings, financial and tax  implications and up to the home closing. In fact, she attended every walk-through with us and vigorously asserted herself on our behalf with the builder. The end result was a home that my wife and I can retire in with all the trappings that we desired and of course, this would not have been possible without Bela. She excelled at every step of the way and in fact, went beyond our normal expectations for a realtor in helping us with the home purchase. Thanks Bela for all your efforts and hard work! We wholeheartedly recommend Bela to all potential home buyers in the area!

Thank you for your kind works. Often there is a misconception that new construction purchases do not require a Realtor...so this review is highly appreciated! Your home is absolutely gorgeous - I wish your family many happy years and celebrations in it!
