The Autumn Equinox has come and gone for another year, but the signs of Fall started before today.
We've had some cooler days and nights, but still enough hot to know Summer wasn't gone.
Some of our flowers have passed their peak times and some of our late bloomers are showing up.
Leaves are starting to go through their blaze of glory and land on the lawn. Yep, I don't think I'm going to have to mow too many more times!
And the other clue? Our eight legged friends have been giving us the opportunity to practice our Spider-Fu!
You know what I'm talking about don't you??!! That momentary panic and the flailing that starts as soon as you walk through that spider web you didn't see! The insects and critters know that the colder months are coming and the wood spiders are setting up webs all over the place.
The stink bugs? They're crawling around every place that they think will let them get inside the home to someplace warm.
The mice? They're starting to look for winter homes too, so definitely time to make sure all the cracks and crevices outside are sealed. And it may be time to take some active measures to protect the stuff stored in the sheds and time to install the mouse guard on the beehive entrance.
But what it's not the time of year to do? That's give up on selling or buying homes. We're heading into the season where some sellers will figure it's time to give up and come back in the Spring. But fact is buyers are buying all months of the year, it's just a matter of quantity. While it's true for some homes they show best during the green and flowering months (ours is one), for most homes staying on the market makes sense as long as you're still practicing the fundamentals: correct pricing and solid presentation to the market.
And for the buyers, homes still on the market could be a good indication that the sellers aren't just "testing the market", but that they're serious about getting their home sold.
