Buying A Home At The Start Of The Year

Buying at the beginning of the year is not just advantageous as a desirable outcome, but it also comes with other benefits that those who wait will miss out on. Here are some reasons why buying a home early on is a solid strategic move:

1). Less Competition: Like many other industries, real estate transactions slow down a bit after the end of the quarter rush. With so many people diving back into work and back on tight budgets following the holidays, many are not focused on property ownership. The real estate market will pick up again in the spring, making this period in between a great chance to find a home with less competition out there to affect your top choices.

2). Motivated Sellers: New listings are less common in January. If you are currently shopping for a home, there is a chance that the properties you’re viewing have been listed since before the holidays. These sellers may be extra motivated to sell their property to offload it at the start of the new year, giving you better leverage in your offers and conditions. These conditions can lead to you getting a great deal!

3). A Year of Opportunity: When you purchase a home, so much changes. You’re able to move into a new space and make it your own. You’ll have a whole new neighborhood to explore. It will be a year of firsts in your new home. It’s exciting, and a great way to start the new year.
