Along with pumpkin spice lattes and flannel shirts, you might want to consider adding buying a home to your list of fall essentials.
According to Sharon Voss, Realtor and president of the Orlando Regional Realtor Association, fall is a great season to buy for these 3 reasons:
1. Less Competition
“Buyers need to be ready to make a decision and a solid offer in timely fashion.”
2.More attention from your Realtor.
“Homebuyers who are conducting their search during the fall could enjoy additional attention from Realtors as their client load dwindles. Likewise, service providers such as mortgage lenders and title companies are emerging from the summertime sales swamp and can often respond more quickly.”
3. Better deals and year-end tax breaks
“Even buyers who missed the summer rush still have time to purchase and file for homestead by the end of the year. When tax time comes around, homeowners should remember to take advantage of the tax breaks such as:
Mortgage Interest Deduction
PMI and FHA Mortgage Insurance Premium Deduction
Prepaid Interest Deduction
Property Tax Deduction
Energy-Efficiency Upgrade Deduction”
And as an added bonus, Voss said “Fall is a lovely time to purchase a new house and get settled in; there is nothing better than a home for the holidays!”

"Lance Whipple has been our Realtor for the purchase of three vacation properties in the central Florida area. There are many reasons why we always choose to work only with Lance. First, he is very professional, respectful, trustworthy and incredibly knowledgeable in the local market. One thing we really appreciated is that he is very diligent moving things along with the urgency and at the pace needed. He was always on time, very responsive and was always available when needed, either at the moment or very shortly thereafter. He offered valuable guidance, kept us updated at all times, and helped us navigate through each step of the entire process. He also created a purchase contract that was beneficial to us and protected us as buyers, while being also reasonable and fair to all the parties involved.
Despite all this, I think what we appreciated most was his personal attention, and friendly and positive attitude. Although we knew he had many other clients, he always made us feel like we were the only ones. We highly recommend Lance."
