Is winter a good time to buy or sell your home? Absolutely! From a seller's perspective, there is less competition in the market - so the serious buyers that are looking in the winter have a better chance of coming through your home than competing over many others. Winter and the holiday season specifically can be a good time to show your home as it tends to put people in a happy mood.
From a buyer's perspective, if you're looking in the winter the sellers will know you're a serious buyer. Because there's less people out looking to buy you may not have to compete with multiple offers for your perfect home like you may in traditionally higher demand periods like in the spring and summer months. Also, buying now may help you get a better interest rate on your mortgage. Rates are expected to increase as we move into 2017
If you're thinking about buying or selling - either now or in the spring, give me a call, I'd be glad to talk to you about your options and help you determine what's best for you
