Why You Should Buy In The Winter
Purchasing a home during the winter can be very beneficial to the buyer! Winter season is a buyer's market! Here are five reasons why you should purchase a home during the winter.
Fewer Shoppers = Less Competition
The housing market is slow so that means there are fewer buyers BUT that also means that there is less competition. It is a buyers market during the winter!
You are less likely to enter a bidding war.
Because the competition is low, the chances of getting into a bidding war are rare.
You have leverage when it comes to negotiating
Again, because the market is slow sellers are more likely to agree to a lower price.
You can test the house’s endurance.
Winter puts all major systems to the test such as heaters, plumbing, and roofs. Winter is the best time to test them so you won't be surprised with an issue later on.
Sellers are motivated to sell!
Sellers want to get that tax break or they want to start the year fresh! So they will do what it takes to close the deal!
