Home Buyers Hoping for Better Luck This Winter

By Homesmsp @HomesMSP

Home buyers had a challenging time this year because of low inventory and bidding wars. Those who haven't been successful  are hoping for better luck this winter, according to a recent survey by and yes, winter is coming!

For sale-snow

The top three advantages for buying in the winter are...

  • Motivated sellers
  • Better prices
  • Less competition

Still, fewer buyers look in the winter because let's face it...

  • Ice, snow and cold make winter house hunting less pleasant
  • Then there is lack of light after about 5:00, making evening showings after work difficult
  • And the supply of homes for sale is even lower in the winter months

That said, if you are a buyer and you find a home that is right for you it can be the best time of year to buy. Don't give up until spring just because snow is coming... if you make an offer soon you could even move in by Christmas or New Year's!
