Why Now’s a Great Time to Buy
Although the market may be slower, which means less homes on the market, this could actually benefit you in a few different ways.
Those sellers that do have their homes on the market tend to be more motivated. This means that they want to sell ASAP, and they’re more likely to negotiate a deal.
Less homes on the market also means more access to real estate industry professionals, whether it’s realtors, appraisers, inspectors, etc. Because they have less clients, they’ll likely have more time to work with you.
Closing before the end of the year could also have some tax advantages. This is something you’ll want to double check with your tax professional as it differs per person, but depending on previous deductions from this year, you could use the home purchase as a deduction.
Less buyers can also be a benefit to you…think less competition. It can be easier to schedule showings as sellers don’t have to work around so many show times. Less buyers also mean less offers to compete against. Your offer is more likely to get considered and/or accepted!
