As everyone knows, the laws of supply and demand to a large extent determine house prices. There is the actual supply of homes and the supply of Buyers, which in turn produces the demand for homes in the marketplace. Well December through February is not the most pleasant time of year to be house hunting. It’s cold, wet and sometimes grey. There are fewer homes on the market as most people wait until the Spring to list. There are also many fewer Buyers out looking. Would it make sense to be buying when very few other people are buying? When there are way fewer Buyers to compete against? When few Realtors are using the infamous off night strategy to sell their Clients homes? I think yes. So if you want to buy smart, bundle up and get out there and look at some houses over the next few months. You may be surprised what you might find!
