The winter season is a great time to look at homes and to make a purchase. Right now, many homes are cozy, warm and all decked out in their holiday finery. In addition, the rates are still great, even though they have been starting to inch up a bit.
You’ll find there is less competition from other buyers. Many take some time away from house hunting because of the busyness of the season. When you find the home you like in the spring market, there is a higher probability that you will face multiple offers, especially with the rates on the rise. Everyone will be scrambling to make an offer.
As you contemplate whether or not to continue your home buying search, consider taking some time to keep looking. Plan your searching for daylight hours; some homes are not occupied and may not be plowed, shoveled or well lit.
