Contrary to popular opinion, there is a good deal of sales activity on homes throughout the winter. There are some things that make selling and buying a home a bit different in the winter. The following are some things you will want to avoid doing while attempting to buy a home during the winter…
Not Using Your Imagination
Most properties can look there most drab during the winter. Look at the yard and imagine what it will look like during the summer, fall, and spring.
Ignoring That Closing Delays May Happen
Things can get complicated. The plumbing or electric might need updating. With weather delays and such sometime work can drag on a bit longer. Something thing can’t be fixed during snowfall or low temperatures.
Not Being Flexible Enough
Sometimes you need to drop everything your doing and look at a home before it get swiped up! The weather and major winter holidays can make this much needed spontaneity even tougher to pull off.
Thinking That Prices Will Be Lower in the Winter
Generally home prices are lower in the winter for motivated sellers wishing to attract buyers. The problem is that there is less inventory also, so that means more competition for few homes.
Low Balling Your Offer
Most houses are priced to move in the winter so a low ball offer could offend the buyer into not even asking for a counter offer.
