I get asked all the time from home owners if they should wait until Spring to list their home for sale since that's such a busy time for real estate. I respond with absolutely not.  Even in the fall, the buyer demand is still strong, especially in today's market. The housing inventory is still at record low levels. Those buyers out looking at your home are serious ones.  Your home will have less competition for sure, thus more likely to get full value.  There may never be a better time to move up. Home values are projected to increase 5% over the next 12 months. If you wait, it may end up costing you a higher mortgage payment and down payment.  Interest rates are also projected to slowly increase.   Finally, it may just be time for you to move on with your life. Get your home on the market, and you can move on to the home you desire.
