10 Reasons to Buy a House DURING the Holidays

Real Estate Agent with Morris & Raper Realtors

  1. Uncertainty regarding loan programs and limits that may not be available in 2009.
  2. Because there are fewer buyers shopping for a home at this time, you may be in a stronger negotiating position.
  3. The transaction load is lighter for lenders at this time, so your file may be handled quicker, more efficiently, and more accurately. This is also true for closing attorneys.
  4. t's nice to get a feel for a home when it's decorated for the holidays.
  5. You may have more vacation or free time instead of having to ask off work to look at homes or complete paperwork, signings, etc.
  6. You can show your visiting friends and family your prospective new home.
  7. With fewer buyers on the market at this time, it may be easier to schedule inspections, etc., allowing you to shorten a contingency period in exchange for a more favorable price or lock in an interest rate on your loan.
  8. You'll be enjoying your new home in the spring as opposed to waiting to move in.
  9. 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.
  10. What could be a better gift for the family than a NEW HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
