Buy­ing in Winter? Here Are the Main Ben­e­fits

The Prince George Citizen - The Citizen - Real Estate Weekly - - Real Estate Weekly -

With the snow fall­ing and tem­per­a­tures drop­ping, do­ing any­thing other than stay­ing in the warmth might sound to you like crazy talk. So buy­ing a home in winter prob­a­bly sounds ut­terly in­sane! How­ever, de­spite the cold, there are a num­ber of ben­e­fits of a winter move.

The world of real es­tate sees peaks and troughs over the year, with winter be­ing one of the deep­est troughs. Buy­ers who buck the trend can take ad­van­tage of this typ­i­cally slow pe­riod and reap many re­wards. So, if you’re in con­trol of your mov­ing time-frame, it’s well worth con­sid­er­ing a winter move, es­pe­cially if you’re on a bud­get.

The fol­low­ing points as­sume you wish to pur­chase a home, though the same can be ap­plied to those look­ing to rent.
