1) Less Competition
There is a smaller chance of being outbid during the fall when there are fewer buyers looking than in busy Spring and Summer months.
2) Motivated Sellers
Fewer offers on the table may mean sellers are willing to accept more concessions or a lower price than they would in the more competitive months.
3) Cheeper moving prices
There's typically less demand for moving services during the Fall and Winter, which means movers, trucks and other services may have greater scheduling flexibility and may charge lower fees in busy Spring and Summer months.
