The days are growing cooler and shorter, Labor Day is just around the corner in both the U.S. and Canada, and school is back in session. While so much is shifting, there is still plenty of potential in the world of real estate. This September, no matter where you may be on your journey as a real estate investor, it is helpful to know what makes investing so meaningful this time of year. Here’s what you should know:
Seasonal Impacts on Real Estate Investing
As the seasons change, so does the real estate market. Seasonal variation affects real estate investment more than the average person realizes. One common preconception is that once the booming spring and summer months pass, the market is supposed to cool down alongside the weather.
Although there is some truth to this statement, the fall also poses chances for savvy investors. In reality, every season comes with its own disadvantages and uncertainties.
The autumn months, especially September, are a time where many families have already relocated for the beginning of the school year or the start of a new job. The busy and oversaturated nature of the spring market is gone, allowing for more attention on your property for sellers. On the downside, there can be a lower volume of available properties for flippers and prospective rental property buyers.
Many sources cite the winter months as the best time to invest in real estate, in preparation for the sellers’ market in the spring and summer. However, the fall can also provide a golden opportunity to start searching. If nothing else, the late months of the year can be a time to strategize for the upcoming year of investing.
Types of Real Estate Investments Explained

- Residential Investing: This can consist of owning rental properties or flipping houses. The former is more simple, and good for those who are willing to manage tenants and invest long-term. The latter can be tricky. Even for experienced flippers, market volatility can be hard to navigate.

WHY INVEST IN REAL ESTATE?
Reinvesting Your Equity
Real estate investing done well, results in equity growth in your investment property. As you pay down your mortgage significantly enough, you are able to refinance and reinvest in more properties, thus making your money working even harder for you.
