Why Winter is the best time to buy? During the Spring and Summer, home sales are always, consistently at an all time high! The housing market most typically follows the school calendar which means there is a surplus of homes for sale, but there are many buyers out there as well which means there is high activity and maybe even an offer on majority of the properties you are keeping your eye on. So to sum it up, houses fly off the market in the Summer. However, during the winter months, especially because of the Holidays, families tend to push back their home buying search for the Spring time. This means that there isn’t always a large surplus of homes for sale, but homes do tend to “sit” a little longer on the market which makes sellers more likely to negotiate a great deal for YOU! Purchasing a home is a big deal, and to be able to take your time because there aren’t as many buyers out there, you are sure to make the right choice the first time around!
