TIPS and TRICKS: BUYING A HOUSE IN SPRING
10 April 2021
The National Association of REALTORS® finds that home prices are highest in the summer and lowest in the winter, leaving fall and spring somewhere in between.
But despite the low prices you may find in the winter, for many, difficulties lie in traveling to open houses across icy roads or through snowy weather. Since the days are also shorter, it can be difficult for the home buyer to visualize everything that a property has to offer against dark skies. Not to mention, the winter months are usually hectic enough with the holiday season in full swing. On the other hand, with the Spring Real Estate season things like road conditions, holidays, or weather most likely won’t pose an issue. Moving either by yourself or with a moving company shouldn’t raise any safety concerns – although you may have to pay a moving company more than you would in their off-season. In the Springtime, prices aren’t at their peak yet, and you may even be able to get a great deal on a stagnant listing that didn’t sell throughout the winter.
