4 Things You Didn’t Know About Winter Home Buying

Did you know the winter months are a great time to buy a home? Traditionally, spring is the busiest real estate season, but there are big benefits to buying in winter that don’t happen any other time of year.  

Less Competition

It’s cold outside, there may be snow and ice to deal with, and the holiday season is busy, busy, busy. The result? There are fewer buyers in the market during the winter months, so when you find the home you love, there will be less competition standing in your way. There are fewer multiple offer situations at this time of year, and sellers are often highly motivated and more willing to work with you to make the sale happen. Winter doesn’t automatically make a “buyer’s market,” but it helps!

Closings Are Faster

Because lenders and title companies have fewer clients in the winter months, they can often move more quickly on your closing. Winter is the only time of year when your traditional closing with a lender could realistically happen in less than 30 days. That means you’ll be enjoying your new home faster than anyone who waits until spring to buy.

Hiring Movers is Easier

The same principle applies to hiring movers in the winter. Fewer requests on their time means you’ll get to pick your moving day/time to better suit your needs. Moving companies may offer discounts in the winter, as well, to bring in more business in a traditionally slower season. Not only is your schedule easier to accommodate, but you could save money, too!
