The Super Bowl Is Over! Bring on the Spring Market!
Congratulations to the New England Patriots, again! Super Bowl Sunday is the official end of the football season, but it's also the unofficial start of the spring real estate market. More and more homebuyers start searching for their next home.
The winter season is typically the slowest time for the real estate market. Between the holiday season and unpredictable winter weather, many homebuyers choose to wait until temperatures start getting milder before kicking off the search for a new home. Starting the house hunting process in early February provides homebuyers with time to see what's out there before narrowing down their options and looking into certain homes on the market. By the time they're ready to buy in spring, the weather has usually improved, making the move to a new home much more pleasant.
Homebuyers who are able to find the home they want earlier in the real estate season when winter weather is still around have the advantage of lower amounts of competition. This means they have a better chance of landing a great deal on a home, especially if the seller is looking to sell within a short timeframe.
If buying a new home is in your plans this year, this is the ideal time to begin looking at what's available on the real estate market. This gives you plenty of time to determine what you're looking for in a new home, such as location, price, size, layout and any special features you want. If you need help finding your dream home, we are here to help. We can meet with you early in the prime home buying season to make sure you get a head start on searching the market and submitting a winning offer on the home of your dreams.
