The holidays will soon be here and it’s a great time to spend with family and friends. On another note, it’s also a great time to buy real estate. You may have to brave the elements, and put up with the craziness of the holidays, but it is definitely worth it.
Although inventory is generally limited, if you are persistent, you have less competition and can negotiate a great deal.
Also, sellers are usually motivated if they decide to put their home up for sale during the busy holidays. There are many reasons why a seller may have to sell their home soon, such as relocation or they may want to be in their new home by Christmas. This can all work in a buyer’s favor.
There may be great tax advantages to closing before the end of the year depending on your tax situation. If you are in the market for a new home, it can be a great decision to start looking.
Interest rates are always fluctuating but tend to lower at the end of the year. It’s not a given, but a trend a buyer can take advantage of.
Sometimes closings are quicker at this time of year. Even though lenders, and real estate agents are busy with their own holiday plans and work less, there is a great incentive to close before Christmas and finish the deal before the New Year.
