When is the best time to buy a home?

As a buyer, what time of the year can you get the most of your money in buying homes?


A question home buyers continue to wrestle with is: when is the best time to buy a home? There are so many days in the year but did you know that there are moments when homes can be bought for low prices? There are actually two. Want to give a guess at the two days that can answer the said question, when is the best time to buy a home?

During spring time, the time when colorful, attractive flowers begin blooming after a long winters’ season along with that the real estate signs are also carefully being put up by many home sellers. Real estate agents and buyers come out of their hiding places and resume in playing their part for the spring sales season.

During the spring season, offers for homes literally fly over the FAX machines and mobile phones ceaselessly ring in real estate offices as home buyers and sellers coordinate with real estate agents in obtaining their needs and wants in the real estate business. In this particular season, there are more homes for sale on the market than there are in any other time of the year! The gloomy side of this is that this is the worst time to purchase a home. Prices for homes are high and there is too much competition of home sellers’ prices for homes on the real estate market. The happy side of this is that one day out of the days of this season has been identified to be a good day to get a good deal on home buying…Easter Sunday.

So when is the best time to buy a home during the spring season? Yes, during Easter Sunday.

Many things happen during Easter Sunday when in comes to buying homes. Consider the case of a home buyer who is in search of a fixer in the suburbs of Sacramento who was lucky enough to encounter a home offered out in the real estate market that came along with an ‘attractive’ price. He was able to seal the deal so quickly that when other offers came on the next day, Monday, it was already too late.

Again, when is the best time to buy a home after Easter Sunday?

The answer to that is on Christmas day, December 25. Everyone is so busy with celebrating the sacred day with their loved ones that they would have forgotten or are too uninterested to look around for a home to buy. Knowing that, home buying on Christmas day is a clever move. Nobody but you or only a few others are looking around for a home to buy so the best deals are up and untaken as of yet. You can quickly seal the deal with the sellers on that day!

So when is the best time to buy a home? During Easter Sunday and Christmas Day, of course! Just go out and look for an agent who is willing to work his or her best during those days. They are out there!
