By: Kari Powell

Although the real estate market never sleeps and 100 families are moving to the middle Tennessee area each day, the fall season is the second-best time of the year to sell your home for many reasons.

Families have returned from summer vacations. Disneyworld and beach vacations are in the past and it’s time to hunker down with ball games from Friday night-lights to Saturdays in the south.

Kids have started school and are back in a routine. Fall is a season of change, likewise many families are thinking of relocating before next year and want a new home for Christmas. Santa’s GPS and Amazon Prime needs to be able to find their new home.

The hectic holiday season is not quite upon us yet. It’s time for campfires, jackets, string lights and solo cups with friends.

The weather is still nice for home touring. Who doesn’t like a Sunday afternoon drive searching for the most vibrant colors bursting from Sugar Maple trees around Sumner County.

Realtors are working hard to finish the year strong. Agents are hustling around like little elves preparing to find their clients that perfect home, and find a special place to hang their stockings!
