Buying a House - Time to Buy

Magic Falger & Ela Drag :: Serving Oakville, Burlington and Mississauga.

Buying a House? Hire somebody who knows your neighbourhood.



Are you checking MLS® sites in search of a dream home? The right time to buy a new home might be deferent than you think. Most of us think that January is not the month to buy a home. The nasty weather, cold and snow tend to keep us indoors. Usually, there are fewer listings on MLS® during that period but also there is less peoples on open houses and less showings.

Sellers have probably received their credit card bill after Christmas shopping. They might be more motivated to sale. Your Realtor® will be happy to present an offer to motivated sellers. Surely it will be given a right amount of consideration.
 

As spring gets closer and more for sale signs get planted in a front lawn. The number of buyers is rising as well. This time of a year usually generates biggest turnovers in real estate industry.

If you are renting you might consider buying. Especially with today’s mortgage rates. The difference between buying and renting from financial point of view might be slim. Ask your Realtor® about current rates or contact a mortgage specialist.
