I hope you’re having a wonderful fall. The holiday season is full of joys: surprise gifts, delicious meals, colorful lights, and nostalgic movies. But if you’re in charge of hosting out-of-towners, it may not be quite as joyous.
Getting to spend more time with visiting family and friends is wonderful, but it can cramp your style — especially if your home isn’t quite large enough to comfortably accommodate them.

Silver medal. Runner-up. Fall. These are all considered to be the second choice, but there are so many benefits to buying or selling a home in fall that we can’t help but push back on any thoughts that the season should be dismissed as subpar. After all, vanilla is the top-selling brand of ice cream, but does that make it better than other frozen treats? We think not! Consider these seven reasons to buy or sell this fall.
