You’re a Seller

If you’re a seller who wants to sell their Oakville real estate, you have to know that summer is the best time to sell. People love to mill about, enjoying lush gardens and in July you get the magic hour where a light plays just right to the positive features of your home and makes it look heavenly. But once we start our slow descent into fall, it’s anyone’s guess what you can do to get people to buy. Luckily we know just what autumn buyers are looking for!

In late autumn many homes will come up on the market for sale, and you’ll find that more and more buyers come out in search of deals. The more inventory that’s on the Oakville luxury real estate market, the more buyers will start to bite. But if you list your market right when people start to look, you may be able to beat the rush! Don’t list too early or you could get buried under an avalanche of brand new offerings.

You’re a Buyer

If you’re a buyer, you’ll have your pick this time of year. There are all kinds of Oakville real estate out there for you to find, but most buyers just aren’t looking until there are a lot of homes to choose from. Looking for homes before fall starts doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to be able to get a deal on Oakville luxury real estate, if anything you could be shooting yourself in the foot. But when is the right time to buy,

Why Do Things Get Busy in the Fall?

The luxury real estate market, like all Oakville homes for sale, heats up in the fall. August and early September can be a quiet time on the market; March through May and September to October are the busiest times for real estate.

You’re going to need a lot of money and offers flying around, a lot of activity, for the luxury Oakville real estate market to really be busy.
