Why It’s A Good Idea To Buy A Home During The Holiday Season
According to MoneyTalkNews buying a home in December could save you 5-7% in a purchase price, on average. And most likely you’ll find less competition from other buyers, so less chance of bidding wars that have been driving prices up due to lack of inventory. According to BankRate, tenacious house hunters who buy a home in December compared with other times of the year will save the most money. A study by ATTOM Data Solutions showed that nationwide, December held seven of the top 10 days where buyers got the best price discounts on home purchases, making it the best month to buy a home.
So if you’ve been thinking about buying a home in the Charlotte metro area this year, Black Friday, this Thanksgiving holiday weekend and the month of December could be the perfect time to do it. Just think how great it will be to avoid the crowds at the mall and also to “score” a great deal on a new home. Interest rates also dropped back a bit this past week, so it’s also a great time to take advantage of what are still historically low interest rates and lock in your housing costs for years to come.
