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? 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. Bidding wars, although still happening occasionally, are not as common. 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.
