The seasons bring changes to the temperatures as well as to the housing market. But don't be discouraged about "missing" what conventional wisdom dictates as the best time for the market. Buyers are as individual and unique in their needs and wishes as are the situations and conditions which may encourage sellers to list their homes. There is just no "right" or "wrong" time to put a house on the market or to go looking for one. Some may wait until the Spring, which traditionally has been seen as the best time to market a house, but sales are made year-round, including Christmas and even New Year's Eve. There are even some advantages at these times when less buyers are looking and fewer sellers are listing. Just the right buyer may come along when fewer folks are looking. Checking out houses in the colder Winter seasons gives buyers a chance to consider systems which may go unnoticed in warmer seasons...do the windows leak? How much is heat costing? How is the insulation? Does the street get plowed regularly? Both sellers and buyers can more easily address these issues when the temperatures fall. Keep the needs of each season in mind as you look at houses, regardless of the time of year.

We can give you other suggestions to keep in mind. We'll work for you. Give us a call.

Have a great day!
