Wintertime is not typically when one thinks about shopping for a new home or selling a current residence. Most people are cozy in their homes baking cookies, planning family festivities and getting ready for the upcoming holiday season. Don’t let this month pass you by if you are wanting to buy or sell! There are so many wonderful winter opportunities to be had!
Top Reasons for Buyers:
Wintertime sellers are much more willing to reduce listing prices to try and close a deal as quickly as possible.
With less people in the winter looking for homes there will be less competition for other people looking for that similar home.
A winter sale usually means the seller is highly motivated and will be more open to favourable negotiations which include price and time lines.
Top Reasons for Sellers:
With less homes on the market a Seller's home will potentially stand out more than it would in more busier market periods.
Sellers can also play up the seasonality to their advantage with warm and fluffy textiles, tasteful and neutral décor such as simple wreaths and a small Christmas tree.
Buyers shopping for a home in the winter tend to be more committed to the purchase. Chances are if they visit your home they are committed to purchasing not just browsing as in summer months.
