We know you have too much to do. Decorating, shopping, baking, entertaining—the list goes on and one. Many home buyers, understandably, halt their searches during the holiday season. But that’s not necessarily such a great idea. Here’s why the holidays are a good time to buy a house.
- Less Competition
December is approaching season in Florida, which is one of the busiest times of year for real estate. But a lot of people don’t want to bother with house hunting until the holidays are over. That means you have a better shot of not competing for the home you love with a slew of other buyers.
- Motivated Sellers
Just like buyers don’t want to be bothered during the holidays—neither do sellers. So if a home is being marketed aggressively this time of year, it means the sellers mean business. And that’s good for buyers.
- Faster Closings
There are fewer loan applications and few closings during the holidays. That means your loan processing, your inspections and your paperwork doesn’t get backlogged. You may even be able to close sooner than expected. Merry Christmas!
- Savings on New Home Décor
If you do close during the holiday season, chances are you can pick up some great sales on furniture and décor for your new home.
