Who doesn’t love some apple cider and a good pumpkin patch, Charlie Brown?



What should you expect this season when buying or selling your home? As you have seen over the past few months, many buyers and sellers in the market have been in a holding period as the impacts of the corona virus were unexpected and people wanted to wait and see how the market would play out. 6 months later, the holding period has been longer than anticipated. The New River Valley has been no stranger to this pattern. However, we are still seeing price increases and growth across our towns. Many local homes are selling at 100+% of their selling price due to the low inventory and wonderful amenities, schools and growing towns.

This Fall many are predicting more movement in the market as buyers and sellers are becoming more comfortable in the current environment, and are tired of waiting. In the state of Virginia, buyer traffic has been very high over the past couple months and plans to continue down that path, making it the perfect time to look for your next home. In fact, studies show that the average time a home is on the market in VA is 31 days or less.

Some fall housing trends to look out for include an earth tone color palette. Try giving your home a leg up on the market by including cool tones of olive green and classic blue in your interior design. Multifunctional spaces are also on the rise! Try turning your kitchen space into a dining room as well. Dual spaces create more uses without having to add a room. Be careful when decorating for Halloween, you want a potential family to be able to envision themselves in their new home. That doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy the autumn festivities though, keep reading for some fun ideas to get out and about this fall!

You don’t have to sit at home during the pandemic, you can still enjoy all the NRV has to offer this fall.
