Dear Monica: I want to sell my house but wonder if I’ve missed the fall selling season. What do you think? Penny S.
Dear Penny: The days are getting shorter and this usually means the end of the more active fall real estate market. Daylight Saving Time will end on November 7 and it will be dark an hour earlier in the afternoon. There will still be active buyers but inventory will decline as fewer sellers list their homes for sale. Some sellers whose homes are unsold may take them off the market and relist them in January when the market picks up again. You can weigh the pros and cons of listing now and decide if you want to wait until after the holidays to sell your home.
