The Benefits of Moving in the Winter

February 25, 2013 | Moving Guides & Tips

Although the winter months might not be the most appealing time to find and move into a new home, it can be the best time. So why is the winter a good time to move?

Why You Should Move in the Winter

  • There are less homes on the market during the winter and sellers are eager to move from their residences
  • There are fewer buyers on the market during the winter because more people want to move in the warmer months
  • Due to a decrease in volume during the winter, lenders usually have fewer loans to process and less paperwork to process
  • Less competition for the buyers
  • Due to the slower market, real estate professionals have more time to devote to your search for a new home
  • (Sometimes) lenders will forgo certain fees to stay busy in the off-season
