Although the temperatures are dropping outside, the real estate market in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and the Smoky Mountain region is heating up. Spring may be the peak time for house hunting, but fall comes in second. The fall is a great time to go house hunting for many reasons, from available inventory to moving conditions to general neighborhood exploring.
After the rush of spring and summer, many homes on the market may adjust their price to draw in fall buyers. This means the savvy shopper may scoop up quite a deal. The downside to these homes is that there may be more buyers interested once the price does drop, decreasing the amount of time you have to put in your offer.
Fall moving conditions are much nicer than the heavy heat of summer. Crisp air, lower temperatures and less humidity will make the physical move much less intrusive. Plus, there’s a certain peace that comes with the crunch of fall leaves underfoot; a calm permeates the breeze that makes the birds chirping clearer and brings the scent of wood smoke from a neighbor’s fireplace.
Finding the right neighborhood is much more enjoyable in the fall. Taking a drive through the scenic roads surrounding the Smoky Mountains doesn’t feel like work, but this is especially true in the fall. When abundant leaf colors weave in and out of the peaks and valleys, with a cloudless blue sky as a backdrop, driving through potential neighborhoods is more pleasurable than ever. Looking at log cabins in the fall feels like stepping back in time, though we all certainly appreciate the modern amenities that come with the distressed chic look some cabins offer.
