It is true that house hunting in the Spring is a pleasant experience. The weather is generally better, and properties simply look better surrounded by fresh flowers and green grass. But does that mean you should wait until Spring to start your house hunting journey? No. Far from it.
According to the National Association of Realtors, the slowest months for the real estate market are traditionally November, December, January, and February. Inventory tends to be lower, but the truth is homeowners are just as motivated to sell quickly this time of year as they are in April or May when demand and prices increase. In other words, waiting until Spring could cost you. Start your home search now.
Another reason to start your home search now is the availability of real estate professionals. Due to the seasonal nature of the real estate market, many real estate professionals, whether agents or mortgage brokers, are naturally less busy in the winter months. To you the buyer this means even top-producing agents now have the time to sit down with you to finetune your home search.
