With the cold and rainy winter weather settling in, most buyers prefer to wait for the more pleasant spring weather before finding a home to purchase. Although it is much more enjoyable to go home-shopping on a beautiful spring day, think about this: If you really like a home on a gray, dreary winter day then you will absolutely love it on a bright sunny day! Also, after a heavy rain is the best time to inspect basements, windows and roofs for leaks, and to see if any “ponding” occurs in the yard which could lead to more problems down the road.
The holidays are also quickly approaching which means many people are pre-occupied with other things and are not thinking about moving. This is great news for buyers because it means there is less competition in our hot market — which means you may get a better price! Also, most Sellers who have their home on the market during the holiday season do so because they don’t have a choice. For whatever reason they need to sell their home.
Motivated Seller = Good deal for potential Buyers.
