4 Reasons Why Now Is A Great Time To Purchase Over The Holidays
Thinking About Putting Your House Hunting On Hold Due to the Holidays?
Christmas and seasonal parties, tree decorating, cookies and let’s not forget the lights…. friends, the holidays are here again, and it’s the perfect time for …house hunting? OK, we know you’re busy enough planning family feasts and much-needed vacations while dealing with colder weather (ha ha!), but hear us out. While it might seem counterintuitive to put a big-ticket item like a home on your holiday shopping list, it really does make sense.
Don’t believe us? Check out these surprisingly smart reasons to let everyone else hit the mall or cyber sales to buy half-off sweaters while you make the purchase of a lifetime: a new house to ring in the New Year. Here are some reasons why:
1. LESS COMPETITION FROM HOME BUYERS
2. MOTIVATED HOME SELLERS
The December seller is likely to be —and therefore more open to negotiation. So what you might lack in choice of available homes could be balanced out by dealing with a more flexible seller.
Most sellers have a compelling reason for putting their house on the market before or during the holidays. They might be facing a relocation and want to get their kids settled before the new term. Or they might just be feeling some stress if they listed their home in the fall and it’s still languishing post–Turkey Day, making them just a little more anxious to deal. Believe me for the last 2-3 years in a row my husband and I have either been on one side or the other of these transactions and they are a lot more friendly to negotiate instead of going up against other offers or aggressive sellers.
