I know what you're thinking. The weather is getting cold, and if we purchased our vacation home now, we probably would not use it much until next year.
Here Are 5 Reasons To Buy Now
1 Sellers are generally most flexible now, much less so in the Spring.
2 Rates are at historic lows, you could save thousands financing now.
3 Less competition. Avoid being too late to act, or even worse, getting involved in a bidding war. It happens every year.
4 Use the cold winter months to complete repairs or improvements when labor is less expensive and readily available.
5 But isn't the inventory best in the Spring? Not often. In fact, the inventory now is much better than it was in the Spring of 2014. How many vacation homes to you plan on buying anyway? :) You only need to find one... the right one for you, your family, and within your budget.
The perfect place for you could be available right now, and at a much better price than it will be next year. Do NOT rely on your own online search to determine if you will like any of the current homes for sale. Photos are deceiving. Many homes are incorrectly mapped, especially if they are on private roads common in the beach neighborhoods.
Call, email, or text me to setup a tour of homes that specifically match your vision, without bias or conflict of interests.
