Did you know that you can buy your home in winter and save?
While many home sellers and purchasers leave the important decision of buying a home in the warmer months, there are some important advantages of purchasing a home in winter.
Less Homes on the Market
Less homes on the market means less buyers, and you can use this to save you money.
With competition down, home sellers may be interested in taking less.
You can negotiate a better price, and the seller gets a quicker sale.
In a report, NerdWallet.com research showed that the cost of homes dropped 8.45% on average during January and February than they did in June through August.
For a $150,000 home, that’s a savings of over $12,000.
Shorten the Purchasing Process
