I hear buyers and sellers say every year that it’s the worst time of year to buy or sell when school starts and the holidays are on the way. Well, I say that’s just an old wives tale…or just lazy agents trying to take a vacation! Ask yourself, why wouldn’t I want to buy in a market where there is less competition and sellers more willing to give price reductions and concessions…and maybe even that pool table in the basement! I hear frustrated buyers state how they are sick and tired of running into multiple offer situations. Well, I say, buy now! There are a million reasons why and when sellers list their homes and I can assure you the inventory of nice houses doesn’t go down at the end of the year. In fact, my agents at Market Elite have some of their most productive months at the end of the year.
Why wait til the spring when you will have to compete with the flock of buyers. Get preapproved now and take advantage of a time that can score you a great home at a great price.
Til next time…
