Sage Realty’s Main Line Realtors® Announce Benefits to Buying a Home in the Winter
Wayne, PA – December, 2016 – Sage Realty has announced the benefits to buyers who shop for homes during the winter months, particularly January and February. For many, buying a home in the winter can save them money and reduce stress due to less competition.
According to a recent market analysis from Nerd wallet using data from Realtor.com, home prices tend to fall in the winter months. Selling prices across multiple major metropolitan areas steadily drop, starting in the fall, with the lowest prices seen in January and February. Prices can decrease as much as 8.45 percent, resulting in buyers potentially saving thousands off the purchase price of their new home.
The reason prices tend to drop with the temperature has a lot to do with supply and demand. Buyers tend to prefer finding new homes in the summer months to avoid conflicts with their children’s schooling. The reduced competition causes sellers to lower their asking price and allows buyers and their Realtors® in Main Line, PA, more room to negotiate.
While a reduced price is a major benefit to buying homes during the off-season months, other advantages include:
- Lower risk of the sale falling through
- Better idea of the home’s insulation
- Greater control over timing
