‘Tis the season to start thinking about making a number of purchases, be it a Thanksgiving turkey or gifts for Christmas or Hanukkah. What probably isn’t on your list of things to buy is a house. Yet you’d be surprised to know that now is a great time to purchase one of the Dallas GA homes. If you’ve been seriously considering purchasing a new home, but thought you should put it off for the new year, think again and start making plans to be in your new home for the new year.
One reason to seriously considering purchasing a home during the holidays is that sellers tend to be motivated this time of year. Often they’re clearing out the books for the new year, their home has been on the market for a while and they really need to sell it, or they’re having to move unexpectedly and don’t have the luxury of waiting. This means you can potentially get a much better deal on the home, because the seller is more likely to be open to negotiations.
Another reason the seller might be open to negotiations — and why this is a great time to buy — is the fact that there are simply fewer buyers in the market. That’s good for buyers who are out there, because there’s less competition. While the supply may be lower, you have fewer people fighting over the same home. In fact, if you’re looking to purchase a new home that is move-in-ready, you may be in extra luck. You’ve got a great house, potentially at a decent price, and with fewer people who can sneak in and buy it out from under you at a moment’s notice.
Another perk to purchasing a home at this time of year is the simple fact that home inspectors, mortgage brokers, movers, and other periphery services aren’t as busy as they are during the spring and summer months. You won’t have to wait as long and may get more personalized service when they’re not swamped with lots of other clients.
Finally, whether it’s the seller, mortgage broker, home builder, real estate agent or even yourself, there are often financial incentives to closing on a home before the end of the year. Lots of people want to start the books fresh in the new year and financially, there can be some tax benefits for both sellers and buyers when you close by December 31. Examine any benefits you may receive by purchasing a home this year vs next year and keep that in mind.
From motivated sellers to less competition to financial benefits, deciding to purchase one of the Dallas GA homes for sale during the busy holiday season my ultimately make it worth your while. Just imagine how nice it will be to be able to start the year fresh in your brand new home. What better gift could you want!Tags: homebuilder dallas ga, homes for sale dallas ga
