Buying a Home for the HolidaysThe weather is a little colder but that doesn't mean you can't buy a house during the holiday season. There are fewer homes on the market during the holidays but there are still some worth the look. Most people aren't home during this time of year because they’re travel to be around their family so much less open houses are available to visit. According to Coldwell Banker Professional in Virginia Beach, people tend to overlook this time of year and shopping for a home during the holiday season can get you a great deal and a great home.
There are some advantages to buying a home during the holiday season. First of all, sellers that keep their homes on the market during this time of year are very motivated sellers. You have less competition from other buyers because there are fewer of them. Lenders are more available and have more time to dedicate to you. Interest rates are usually lower than in the spring time. And best of all, although moving during the dead of winter might not be so pleasant (unless you choose the San Antonio moving company), relaxing on the patio of your completely unpacked home when the weather warms up is priceless.
So if you're on the market for a house, you might be wondering if it's worth it to look into foreclosures. Well according to RealtyTrac the deals have gotten better as sales have slowed. Looking at foreclosures is worth it because you might just find what you're looking for and at a huge discount. Depending on where you live or where you'd like to move, some states such as Ohio and Kentucky for example were selling bank-owned homes at 51% below the average asking price! Yup you read correctly 51%, talk about a fantastic deal!
If you're looking to buy a home during this holiday season don't be surprised by the lack of competition out there. Remember the sellers are motivated to sell during this time, otherwise they wouldn't keep the house on the market.
