IT’S OKAY TO BUY AND SELL DURING WINTER
Though many associate the spring and summer with buying and selling homes, the best time to buy and sell is when the timing is right for you! When you buy and sell within same-market timing, you will usually end up with approximately the same net asset equity once the sale is closed.
The major advantage of buying and selling during this time is locking in a great interest rate. If you’re considering buying and/or selling this winter, connect with your trusted agent to formulate a plan for success.
