When is the best time of the year to buy a home? Strictly analytically speaking, there are at least two days of the year that give home buyers the edge. Would you like to guess which two days are best for buying a home? Pick out those days and let’s see if you’re right.
Every spring, as tulips struggle to poke through melting snow in the North and rosebuds cautiously open in Southern climes, sure as tootin’ real estate signs begin multiplying like bunnies across the country. Soon as the For Sale signs are mounted on the posts, swarms of activity buzz in the streets as sellers, buyers and real estate agents crawl out from wherever they hibernated for the winter to welcome the spring sales season.
There is nothing like a spring real estate market. Offers fly through digital online signing sites and back to emails with cell phones ringing constantly. Everybody wants a deal, and everybody wants to sell. Typically the marketplace is flooded with inventory. There is more on the market in the spring than any other time of the year.
It can also the worst time to buy a home. The spring selling market often results in way too much competition for the same homes. Except for one day. There is one day in the spring that buyers will have the edge against all the other buyers. In fact, they might be the only buyers out looking at homes on that day.
