When you decide you’re ready to buy a home, you might be wondering which season is the ideal time to purchase a house. While the team at Chorey & Associates Realty, Ltd. can help you find a home for your family year round, there are benefits of buying a house in the winter:
Sellers Need to Move
If you’re looking to move into a home right away, you will like buying during the wintertime because most sellers who list homes during the winter are eager to sell and often more likely to negotiate.
If you find a home you love during warmer seasons, chances are there is another family that loves it too and has already put in an offer. When multiple parties are interested in the same house, it can drive the price way up. Not as many people want to move during the winter, which means you will have less competition to drive the prices up.
Typically, when a seller is listing a home in the winter, they need to move quickly and have it listed to sell. This puts you, as a buyer, in a great situation for prime pricing.

When inclement weather strikes, travel can become difficult. Be ready for showings by keeping your driveway and sidewalks clear. You never know when a potential buyer will want to see your home, and first impressions count- even in the winter.
Turn up the Heat
Make sure potential buyers have a comfortable, warm greeting as soon as they walk into your home. By raising the temperature a little bit, you can make people feel more welcome while they are inside your house.
Deep Clean Windows
We recommend doing a deep clean of the windows because you’ll want to show off as much natural light as possible without highlighting dirty glass. Opening blinds and curtains gives a much more open and bright feeling as potential buyers move through the house during a showing.
