Dahlonega Real Estate – Why winter can be the perfect season for purchasing selling Dahlonega Homes or Dahlonega Land.

Dahlonega Real Estate – Why winter can be the perfect season for purchasing selling Dahlonega Homes or Dahlonega Land.

The leaves are still down and you have made the decision that you are going to buy or sell real estate in 2015.  You are poised to start; however, you believe it would be best to wait until spring.  While the spring rush may provide more inventory for buyers, and sellers may secure more showings; is it the right decision to wait until spring?

I would like to suggest that both buyers and sellers who enter the market this time of year are seriously dedicated to purchasing or selling, and that this motivation can be equally beneficial to both the buyer and the seller.

Buyers, inventory may not be as scarce as you think.  The recession has caused pent up demand from sellers who put their plans of moving on hold while homes were being purged as foreclosures and short-sales.  Neighborhoods that had few listings in early January now have more homes for sale.  You may discover some wonderfully desirable, well maintained homes from sellers who have had the ability to do proper maintenance on their homes.  Even if you presume that the current housing inventory is less than you will see in the spring,  you must consider that opportunities exist in the dead of winter for motivated buyers to find the perfect home.

Sellers, more showings isn’t necessarily better.  The best scenario would be more qualified, serious buyers who are ready to purchase.

Winter is an excellent time to consummate a deal which results in a win for both the buyer and the seller who would like to avoid the spring rush.  While other buyers and sellers will be just entering the market in the spring, you will be settled in your new home in time for the spring planting season!

I’d be honored to assist you in realizing your real estate goals for 2015.   Call, text or email me today!
