Why should you buy or sell during the winter months? Wouldn’t it be more prudent to wait until spring? Actually, that’s not the case. The winter season can be a great time to buy or sell.
First of all, winter sellers may feel like they have to be more competitive price-wise in order to sell, or they may simply be more motivated if they’re on the market during the holidays. That means pricing could be better for buyers.
There’s also less competition in the market. Many people want to hold off buying and selling until the spring, which means more opportunities for you. Buyers and sellers are also more eager this time of year, giving you more negotiation power.
Additionally, the process will go faster during the winter. The inspectors, mortgage lenders, title companies, and the rest tend to be less busy in the winter months. You may also be able to move quickly and cheaply since moving companies are similarly slow on business.
