8 Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time to Purchase your New Home By Talaia Whisenant Buying a home in the cooler months may sound unconventional, but it could easily be one of your smartest purchases of the year. You’ve probably heard that spring and summer are the best times to buy a new home. With more properties on the market, you’re more likely to find the home of your dreams, right? With warmer weather comes lots of competition. After all the price hikes, multiple offers and bidding wars, buyers often strike out! Here are the top 8 reasons to purchase your home during the winter season.

Lower Prices

Sellers are Motivated

Winter is a great time to buy a new home because it has the best deals! Sure there’s less inventory on the market, but there are also less shoppers and homeowners are eager for a sale. A survey conducted by RealtyTrac analyzed the sale of 32 million homes over a 15 year period during colder months. They concluded that on average, buyers paid 2.6 percent below the actual market value at the time for their homes. This means a discount of nearly $7,800 on a home that would typically sell for $300,000! That’s enough to do some decorating, or even small renovation.

There are plenty of reasons a seller may need to put their property on the market during winter. Whether the seller is forced to relocate to a new city, changing jobs, or dealing with financial hardship, these circumstances give buyers the upper-hand. It’s also a great opportunity to negotiate prices, which can result in scoring a superb deal. This is great news for buyers, who normally end up saving thousands in the home buying process!

88728.25.2.010.011.WinterSelling.indd 1

1/11/17 6:22 PM


There is Less Competition The home buying rush during the spring and summer months can be overwhelming, but by the time winter approaches, most buyers have bought and settled in their new homes. Choosing to purchase your home in the winter means less consumers competing for available homes on the market. Although inventory is plentiful in the spring, buying your home in the winter affords you the opportunity to make the right decisions without facing the exhaustive competition of other buyers. This ultimately drives the price up.

Availability of Vendors

Buyers have more negotiating power

Winter is a slow time for moving companies, so there will be plenty of available vendors to assist you upon purchasing your home. The lack of competition not only gives you the opportunity to get movers at a short notice, but you may also be able to use their services at a discounted price. Some moving companies may even give you a few hours of free service in order to beat out their rivals.

During this time of year, sellers may be motivated to sell fast. For example, he or she may be willing to lower the price along with offering perks and incentives to interested buyers. Deals like these are often scarce in the spring when multiple offers are on the table, and buyers are expected to submit their best bid. Purchasing your home in the winter gives buyers more negotiating power, and can definitely work in your favor.

RealtorsÂŽ have Flexible Schedules Spring is the busiest season for agents, and many work 12-15 hour days closing deals for their clients. During these hectic months, agents working with multiple families may not be able to meet with you on demand or answer your calls at the first ring. In the winter months, however, the home buying rush subsides and agents are generally more relaxed with less business. This means more time to assist you in the home buying process, which is especially important if you are a new buyer in need of guidance and education when purchasing your home! You will likely have the full attention of your agent when business is slow, and more confidence in your home buying decision.

A Lending Lull

Tax Benefits

Winter can be slow for those in the mortgage broker business. There are fewer real estate transactions during this period, and loan officers are more likely to give you a loan, sometimes with special incentives! This scenario means buyers can score better rates, better prices, and better terms when purchasing their homes.

When purchasing a new home, you may be eligible to receive. There are plenty of great incentives for closing on a home during winter time, especially when tax season rolls around. These tax deductions and credits for property taxes, closing costs, and interest rates offset your taxable earnings, potentially saving you thousands!

QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK MORTGAGE LENDERS

By Talaia Whisenant

Buying your first home may seem like a scary process, but it’s also a fulfilling learning experience and a big step towards financial security. There’s no right way to begin the home buying process, but the lending process is a good start. Consulting with lenders first will help you narrow down your budget, understand your credit, purchasing power, and specify what homes you can afford before getting in over your head. A good lender will not only answer client questions, but will do so promptly and with clarity. Here are some key questions to ask:

WHAT IS THE INTEREST RATE? You should ask your mortgage lender for a quote on the interest rate. Compare interest rates among lenders and settle for the lowest rate that you qualify for. Keep in mind that the interest rate, the mortgage balance and the loan term determines your monthly payment. The lower your interest rate, the smaller your monthly payment.

HOW MANY ORIGINATION OR DISCOUNT POINTS CAN I PAY? A point is a fee paid to the lender at the closing in exchange for a reduced interest rate. For instance, one point is equal to 1% of the loan amount. Your lender may charge discount points, origination points, or both. How many points are included in the interest rate, and what are the benefits of buying more? Discount points are prepaid interest and are taxdeductible, while origination points are fees charged by the lender to cover the cost of originating the loan.

IS THERE A PREPAYMENT PENALTY ON THE LOAN? Planning to pay your house off sooner than your loan term? Some lenders charge for that. Once contracts are signed, lenders regulate the payoff terms of your loan. Paying a mortgage off early can unfortunately result in an expensive penalty. Prepayment penalties are often 80% of six months interest. Ask your lender if they have one, and plan in advance.

88728.25.2.020.MortgageFiller.indd 1

HOW CAN I LOCK IN THE INTEREST RATE? Scoring a great interest rate is half the battle; you’ll want to lock in the interest rate because rates fluctuate. If the rate rises, the homebuyer will not be impacted, but if the rate falls, you may not be able to take advantage of the new low rate. Ask for your lender’s loan processing time to ensure your rate is secure during a rate lock.

WHAT ARE THE CLOSING COSTS AND DOWN PAYMENT? Months or even years before a home purchase, prepare your finances for the down payment. This is important because the average down payment on a home can run you 20% of the value of the home. Closing costs are less expensive (but still pricey), and may include loan-origination fees, appraisal fees, attorney fees, and other additional fees. Get a written estimate from your lender within three days of applying for the loan.

WHAT MIGHT DELAY MY APPROVAL ON THE LOAN? Delays are often times unavoidable. Unsent papers, missing signatures, and any change in employment status, an increase or decrease in salary, or even change in marital status can cause delays. Regularly following up with your lender can help speed things up, and you’ll soon be on your way to homeownership!
