Home Buying Tip: Advantages Of Shopping For A Home During A Holiday

Home Buying Tip: Advantages Of Shopping For A Home During A Holiday

If you are like many buyers you are finding the lack of inventory and high buyer demand to be your number one problem.  A big tip I give to my buying clients is to keep shopping for a home even during a holiday.  Let me explain.

Buyer demand is at all time highs while inventory is at all time lows, these two forces create a buying frenzy.  Often you will hear about multiple offers on homes and it can get tough to compete with every home having multiple offers.  From my experience I have noticed that around holidays such as Forth of July I tend to see demand drop temporarily.  My experience has been that many folks tend to have plans, take a break and all of a sudden there is significantly less traffic of buyers.  I say to use this to your advantage.

I certainly do not mean to ignore the holiday or not celebrate it, but instead make time to continue viewing homes.  You will find less multiple offer situations and your odds of having your offer accepted will be much better.  This could be your opportunity to have your offer accepted and maybe it won’t have to be as aggressive of an offer.  Either way if you are shopping for a home don’t let holidays be a day off, instead get out there and you will find your odds will be much better!

With a heart of a teacher I look to educate my clients about the process of buying, selling or renting real estate.  I strongly feel an informed and educated consumer will make better decisions and be less likely to be taken advantage of.
