Winter is Coming…
'Winter is coming!' is the motto of House Stark. And if you keep up with Game of Thrones, then you know that after 6 seasons - winter is finally here.
Although our Utah winter won’t be nearly as harsh as anything the residents of Westeros will have to endure, buying and selling a home in the winter months can bring many unexpected challenges - like competing with the holidays and the weather. Which is why Autumn is a prime time to get your house listed or start your house hunt!
Let’s visit your current housing situation and think about how it could change before next year:
Sellers - During the fall season, housing demand is strong. Less homes are hitting the market and buyers still need a place to live! Buyers are looking for their dream home and they are ready and willing to make that happen before celebrating the holidays and making New Year's resolutions. Also, if you wait to sell over the holiday season, transactions typically take longer to close. Many businesses (like banks and title companies) are closed for the holidays, which adds days to your contract timeline.
Buyers - No one wants to worry about buying a home and moving during the holiday festivities and questionable weather. To avoid wading through three foot snow drifts to view a potential home, start looking now! It is also a great time to move up to a larger, more expensive home. With low rates and rising prices, buying a home now will cost you less in the long run than if you wait.
Whether you will be a buyer or a seller (or both!), there are important questions to ask yourself: Why are you making this major change in your life? Is it to better your family? Improve your finances? Create happiness and health? Whatever your reason may be, it is time to take the leap and make your dreams come true! Hold onto the true reason you are ready to make a change and go for it! Why wait? You have an excellent team behind you ready and willing to help at every step of the way!
