Not only is Sept. 22 through Sept 28 the first week of fall, but it also is the best week of the year to buy a house.
It’s when “shoppers will find less competition, more price reductions and more inventory to choose from,” Realtor.com’s Nicola Bedo says.
During this week, competition is down 26% and the number of listings is up 6.1% compared to the average week. Overall, homes tend to be 2.4% more affordable, too. Even better, about 6% of homes undergo price cuts during this time period.
