After the open houses today, we begin the countdown to Thanksgiving and then Christmas and New Year. This is the time of year in Sacramento that our real estate market typically slows down. Buyers are not as active in the winter months, but when they have to buy a home, they need to purchase a home.
If a buyer is waiting until spring, though, I would caution against it. Spring is busier and there will be more competition for the beautiful homes. A buyer can purchase a beautiful home right now, today, at a lower price most likely, and with better financing. I've always said, btw, that the best day of the year to buy a home is on Christmas.
