Winter is a Great Time to Buy a Home!
Many people believe spring is the best time to sell or buy a home. And for many, it may be. But don’t discount winter buying and selling just yet! Winter can be a great time to sell or buy a home. Here’s why:
Winter buyers and sellers are motivated. If you have your home on the market or are looking to purchase in the winter, it’s often because you are motivated. Whether it’s a job relocation, the need for more space, or other factors influencing the need to move, winter buyers and sellers often have strong motivations and are serious about closing.
For sellers, listing a home in winter may reduce the number of showings you have, but it’s very likely the potential buyers who are willing to trek through snow, ice and freezing temperatures are seriously interested in your house.
For buyers, purchasing a home in winter may reduce the number of properties that meet your needs. But, the sellers that do have their homes listed are serious about getting the home sold. Winter is a busy season full of holiday gatherings, decorations, and celebrations. If a seller is willing to keep their home on the market during this time, it’s likely they want to get the home sold sooner than later.
