So, I have heard a hundred times, if I have heard it once, that the winter months are a bad time to buy or sell real estate. Not true I say!, and here’s why!
Reason number 1!
During the winter months, those home sellers who are listing their property for sale are highly motivated! This is a wonderful thing for a buyer! Motivation is a key element to selling your home quickly, and homes listed during the winter months tend to be more in line with market pricing. Soooo, get out there and buy or sell!
Reason number 2!
LESS COMPETITION! Yes, that is exactly what you read! You will compete with less buyers on little gems because there is simply less foot traffic beating the streets! Score one for you! As an added bonus, there will be less of a possibility of multiple offers coming in on the same home. From a seller’s standpoint, those who are putting in offers are usually pre-qualified and ready to purchase immediately when finding their dream home.
