1. You have the time to focus. If you’ve strung a few days off together, you should have some extra time to do your research and plan your visits carefully. Who knows? With a three-day weekend, you just might find your dream home!
2. Everyone else is at the mall. Only serious sellers are putting their homes out there over the holidays and only serious buyers are shopping. You’ll have less competition for the homes you want. (And technically, fewer buyers means more sellers willing to wheel and deal.)
3. There’s more downtime in December. Home buying can be labor intensive. If you find something you love in November and have more time off in December, you can use it for the home-buying process. Sellers love having that same time to pack and move!
Take advantage of the free time and the slower traffic. According to realtor.com, traffic on their website drops considerably Wednesday through Friday of Thanksgiving week.
But that doesn’t mean people are finished home shopping for the winter. The website ranks Dec. 28 as one of the busiest days of the year for real estate searches—even though Dec. 24 was the #1 slowest. New Year’s Day is also a hectic house shopping day… New Year’s resolution anyone?
There’s no place like home for the holidays. So give thanks then get out there and house hunt!
