Buying a home during the holidays

Oct 25, 2023

The last few months of the year may seem like a hectic time to buy a new home. As shopping lists, family dinners to plan, and seasonal to-dos begin to rack up, the last thing on many people’s minds is making a move to a new home. However, it’s incredibly smart to consider buying a home during the holidays. All it takes is a little planning and insight to find your dream home. 

Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’d like to shop for a new home this holiday season.

You may have less competition

The National Association of Realtors reports the slowest months for real estate purchases runs from November through February. That’s because there are just fewer people making home purchases a priority during the winter months. And that translates to less competition for those who are thinking about making a home purchase.

If you can find a home and make an offer quickly without much back-and-forth between you and other potential buyers. That means you’ll have an offer accepted sooner without the added stress of a busy real estate market.

You can close faster

During colder months, the influx of buyers looking to close on a home slows alongside the rest of the real estate market. That means you may be able to close faster on a home than you’d be able to during the warmer months.

This also means you can be settled into your new home fast. If you’re considering buying a home during the holidays, these faster turnaround days may be exactly what you need to ensure you’re able to celebrate traditions in your new home.
