Contrary to popular belief, the winter is a great time to sell a home. The New Years cheer spreads out into the real estate market, and you can harness it as a seller.
Our real estate market doesn't suffer from a seasonal slowdown like most other places in the country. However, we still see a drop in inventory during the winter because it's simply inconvenient to sell at this time.
This is why buyers and sellers that are in the market during the winter are very motivated to buy a home. They may have to buy or sell for employment reasons, or they may have some other extenuating circumstance where they must buy or sell a home.
This gives you a good chance to capitalize on these captive buyers and sellers. You have a very good chance to negotiate for a good deal whether you're buying or selling. If you're looking to buy an investment property, then now is the time to do so!
There are also tax benefits to buying a home before the end of the year. You will receive a Homestead Exemption a year earlier. This is significant when tax season comes around.
Don't take the winter off because the market will be crowded by the time you're ready to buy or sell. You'll be fighting other buyers and sellers, and you won't get a deal like you can right now.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to speaking with you!
