As far as real estate trends go, fall is typically deemed “slow” months for perspective buyers and sellers. This is because of the notion that families aren’t interested in uprooting their children in the midst of a school year to settle into a new home. However, the Smith Mountain Lake market falls into a different buying and selling demographic…and fall is an opportune time to showcase your home or search for a brand new one.

Why? For starters, empty-nesters and millennials who have yet to start families aren’t as concerned with the school calendar. They’re searching for homes on their own terms and fall is just as good of a time as any to shop around. Plus, with the influx of visitors we have to the SML area for fall festivals (including the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival and The Fall Chili and Craft Festival), there is a lot of potential for new faces eager to explore the lake.

There’s no denying that Smith Mountain Lake is lovely in the summer, but in terms of breathtaking beauty, the fall season is a sure winner. The Blue Ridge is peppered with the season’s boldest colors, and the water is calm and reflective. These, in combination with a crisp, baby blue sky, make Smith Mountain Lake an absolutely gorgeous place to visit during the fall.
