Winter is a great time to buy or sell a home. While most buyers and sellers wait until spring to enter the market, there are a few unique benefits you can reap from the winter real estate market. 

Lately, a lot of sellers have asked me about waiting for spring or summer to put their houses on the market. Today, I thought I would let you know that winter is actually a great time to buy or sell a home.

For sellers, waiting until spring to put your home on the market may not be in your best financial interest. Why? Everyone else will wait until spring or summer, so if you wait along with them, there will be more houses for sale, more inventory for buyers to choose from, and more competition for you. If you put your home on the market now, there will be fewer sellers for you to compete against.


If you’re a buyer, it might not be in your best interest to wait for the spring inventory. You actually have a great opportunity to purchase a home during the winter. Winter and holiday sellers are highly motivated. The more motivated the seller is, the more flexible you can be on price.

If you have any other questions about buying or selling in the winter, give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to discuss your options. I look forward to hearing from you!
