Buying a Home This Fall in Chicago's North Shore

Buying a home in Chicago’s North Shore this fall can be a smooth process if you have an idea of what to expect. The fall is a great time of year to buy a home as it is the second busiest real estate season (with spring being the first), and there are homes going on the market each week. Fall in Chicago’s North Shore is a wonderful time of year with vibrant leaves of red, orange and yellow, crisp blue skies and fun fall activities that bring a spirit of warmth to the chilled air and provide a beautiful backdrop for homes in the North Shore.

As many get back into the swing of school and settle into a routine after summer vacations, buyers and sellers alike begin to test the waters of the North Shore Real Estate market and all seem to benefit. Many sellers are hoping to get a quick home sale before the busy holiday season begins and buyers would be more than happy to move in before that time as well!

If you’re looking to buy your dream home on the North Shore; the market is still leaning slightly in your favor. There are many beautiful homes in Glencoe, Highland Park, Winnetka, Northbrook, Deerfield or any of the other North Shore communities, and since there are a number to choose from, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Be aware that you don’t have to play the bidding war game. If the price is at your limit and other buyers are bidding on this home, while it may be a great property, you can step away; there are many North Shore homes from which to choose. On the other hand, if you do find your ideal home; don’t wait to put in an offer. Because the North Shore market is busy in the fall, other buyers will be soon be vying for the home and a single day can make all the difference.

Buying a home will require some leg work on your end. You have to be willing to take time each weekend to go to open houses throughout the North Shore communities. For a more focused approach, your North Shore Real Estate agent will be able to find guide you in homes that fit your style, needs and price range and can show you around the North Shore area as well! It will take time and dedication, but it will be worth it once you’re settled into your home and can cozy up in front of the fireplace just in time for the cooler weather. Plus, venturing around the beautiful North Shore communities with leaves crunching under your feet as you visit available homes gives you another reason to enjoy the outdoors this season.

If you have any questions about Chicago’s North Shore market, or would like to set up a time to visit any of the available North Shore homes; please let me know! I’d be happy to show you around and help you in the home buying process. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
