Tis the Season! Why winter is the best time to buy a home

Are you planning on buying a home this winter?  Here is why we think now is the perfect time!

warm winter

  1.  When you list your home in the winter months you have less competition and get more exposure! Serious buyers are the ones looking.
  2. The inventory is less expensive and prices actually increase in the spring.
  3. Because there are less buyers and less competition, that usually means unlikely you will have bidding wars.
  4. Sellers are usually motivated and ready to make a deal!
