TOP 12 Reasons to BUY A HOME During THE HOLIDAYS:

12  Many loan programs may no longer be available in 2009 and further restrictions may be placed on loan limits and lending guidelines as a result of the current financial and economic crisis.            

11. There are less buyers shopping for a home at this time, which may give you a stronger negotiating position.

10 Fewer buyers on the market during the holidays, usually means fewer multiple offer situations, especially regarding REO properties and Short Sales.

9. The transaction load is lighter for lenders at this time, so your file may be handled quicker, more efficiently, and more accurately.  This is true also for Title and Attorneys.

8. It's nice to get a feel for a home when it's decorated for the holidays.

7. You may have more vacation or free time instead of having to ask for time off from work to look at homes or complete paperwork, signings, etc.

6  You can show your visiting friends and family your prospective new home and get their input.

5. With fewer buyers on the market at this time, it may be easier to schedule inspections, appraisals etc., allowing you to shorten a contingency period in exchange for a more favorable price or lock in an interest rate on your loan.

4. You can stop throwing thousands of dollars away on rent and start enjoying your new home/investment in the spring as opposed to waiting to move in.

3. January is typically the best time of the year to buy decorating items or home improvement items as the retail industry doesn't want a huge slump after the boom in holiday shopping.

2. If you have kids, they can transfer to their new school at the start of the new semester and avoid "falling behind".

1. What could be a better gift for your family than a NEW HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
