With the Holiday Season Here, It’s a Great Time to Become a Landowner

Posted by admin on December 20, 2012

During the months between Thanksgiving and the New Year, there is always a decrease in the number of people hunting for property.  With all of the decorating, shopping, cooking and visiting with friends and family, it’s easy to see why people tend to put their search for property aside until the hectic months are over.

While there are a lot of things to do in a very short period of time, you should consider continuing your search for property throughout the winter season. If you put your search on hold until the spring, you may miss a great window of opportunity. The following are a few reasons as to why you should search for property throughout the holidays:

  • The weather of the fall and winter seasons allows buyers to get a better view of the land. In many areas of the country, leaves will have fallen from the trees, leaving the area bare and giving a great view of the property. Additionally, in areas where snowfall is common, you will be able to see features of the property better as they stand out amongst the backdrop of the bright white. You will also be able to determine the accessibility of roads leading to the property during the toughest season’s conditions.
  • Due to the fact that there are very people buying property around the holiday and winter seasons, land owners are more likely to list their land at lower prices than in the spring or summer. Also, because there are fewer buyers in the marketplace during this time, buyers are able to avoid bidding wars and negotiate better prices.
  • During the slow winter season, better loan terms are offered to buyers. Lenders are still trying to do business during these months and are in high competition with other lenders to bring in the few people looking for loans during this time; therefore, buyers are able to negotiate better loan and financing terms.

If you are interested in buying property, now is a great time to do so.
