Fall is the second busiest season in the real estate market. If you're looking to buy, here's what you need to know and do.

  1. The busy season is between mid September and mid November. Most people like to be in their new home by the holidays, so this two month span has the most activity.
  2. Make sure you're pre-approved. Since this busy season is so short, you'll need to move quickly. Getting pre-qualified for a loan is essential to closing on your dream home.
  3. Be aggressive. Guess what? Your dream home is someone else's too. Be prepared to make an aggressive offer to give you the advantage.
