Home Buyer Question: Should we wait until Spring time to buy a home?


Should we wait until spring to buy a home?

A common question home buyers have is: should we buy in the fall, or should we wait until spring to buy a home? ย Buying in the fall means you might have to move when its bitterly cold, or there are a couple of feet of snow on the ground.

But buying in the fall-time also comes with some advantages:

Fewer Bidding Wars:

Because other home buyers are waiting until spring, buying a new home in the fall will also mean there is less competition. ย Bidding wars, although still happening occasionally, are not as common. ย This means you may end up getting a house for less.

Home Inspection and other conditions

Buying in the fall of any given year may also allow you (the buyer) to put conditions on the offer, such as a home inspections, financing condition and other required conditions.
