As the school year kicks off, routines stabilize, and people start thinking about their plans for the year, the fall rush begins. It’s a time when individuals and families revisit their goals and strive to make them a reality before the year’s end.

So, if you’re considering buying or selling a home, understanding this seasonal trend can be beneficial in terms of timing and strategy.
