Jerry provided a great customer service experience with frequent communications and prompt follow-through. He was understanding of our unique sales situation and helped us find workable solutions that resulted in a successful closing. Our office was not located near the property we were selling, so we relied heavily on him to coordinate with local stakeholders. Jerry went over and beyond what is typically expected to help us sell this property! We also had a good experience working with Ellen Sither as a designated dual agent. Thanks to their efforts, the proceeds from this sale will support the mission of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

We moved from out of state, and Jerry Powell was recommended by a mutual friend. He began looking for houses with us approximately two months before we moved. Once we found a couple candidates, he demonstrated by his actions that he was just as dedicated to closing correctly and quickly as we were, as the furthest possible closing date was Christmas Eve. We are happy Jerry took time to call us with updates, reminders of what we need to accomplish, and met us multiple times at the property to allow us to inspect it.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
