If you are someone looking to either drop some money on a new house or earn an amount through the sale of a house, you may be wondering whether winter months or the beginning of the calendar year is a good time to buy or sell. Well, lots of folks will present arguments for or against selling in particular during the cold months of the year so let’s present these in a nutshell.
Some people say this is actually a good time in the year to sell a house because of three main things: interest rates are low, mortgage rates are low, and there are people who are actually actively looking to buy a house at this time of the year. These points may make sales move and faster than anticipated.
Those against selling at this time state the harsh weather naming a hindrance for viewing and the general preoccupation with holiday activities and spending as diversions from buying any real estate.
The best way to decide is always to look at the market in your area for yourself and to always actively market you property for anyone who may be ready to close that deal.
