We have all heard the phrase “less is more.” Here are a few reasons LESS can mean MORE for potential homebuyers this time of year.
- LESS frenzy can mean MORE negotiating power. Here in Colorado, buyers are often competing with multiple offers; however, the fall season brings less frenzy surrounding home purchasing. Homes are typically not selling as quickly, so this can allow for more negotiating power on the buyer’s end.
- LESS surprise can provide MORE confidence. Home inspections are a crucial part of the home buying process. Rain and even some snowfall often come with the changing leaves and cooler temperatures. Any potential weather-related issues will be much easier to spot and address before closing, giving the home buyer more confidence in what will potentially be their biggest financial investment.
- LESS days left in the year can put MORE money in your pocket. It is no secret that most homeowners do not want to be selling a home or moving over the holidays. In addition, there can be certain tax incentives motivating a home seller to do their best to close before December 31. This can definitely work in the buyer’s favor.
Who doesn’t love a good deal? Buying a home is an intense and often stressful process. Alleviating some of the potential pitfalls by making a wise decision on timing can make a huge difference. Contact me today, and let’s get the ball rolling before 2018 comes to an end!
