One of the most common questions i hear is "When is the right time of the year to buy a home?"
Is there a time of the year that is better than another for buying?
As far as buying most sources, theyÂ will say it is better to buy in the winter when there are less buyers to bid against, there is less competition and therefore you should get a better price for the home you are looking to buy.
The downfall is that there are also less homes to choose from....
The Right AnswerÂ
The right answer forÂ when to buy, is whenever YOU are ready. You are ready when you find what suits you and your family, you find what you like and find it at a price that is right for you, in conclusion that makes anytime the right time to buy, as long as it is right for you.
Parents with School Age Kids.
The largest variable to "anytime being the right time" is if you are parents with school aged kids, then the number one goal is not moving during the school year. You try to avoid uprooting the kids and moving them to a new school in the middle of the school year. For you starting to look 2-3 months before school ends is a key to your plan.
Having an experienced buyer broker can mean the difference between a smooth stressless purchase or a near unbearable time when you should be your happiest.
In most cases you can hire a buyer broker at no cost to you. The buyer broker gets paid their commission from what the listing agent is posting in the MLS and they get paid at closing.
This way you have someone who can guide you through the buying process, they can assist you through each step of the buying process and look out for your best interests. They will start by assisting you to get prequailified for a mortgage, and forward listing sheets for properties that meet your criteria so you can start your search.
