As a Realtor® i’m often asked about moving in the winter. I’ve heard the concerns, the weather is bad, the kids are in school, the holiday’s are coming. But in reality home buying in the off season is one of the smartest decisions you can make. People have different reasons for moving, a new job, relationship, or maybe just starting over. This may be just the right moment to strike and find that dream home, or showcase your beautiful holiday decorations in that listing.Inventory is often lower during the off season but typically buyers are still looking homes allowing for some potentially great negotiations. Remember this is potentially the largest most emotionally intense decision that people make. A good agent understands this and should offer you solutions and reassurance in the process. We are lucky to have so many great services available to clients to help with their move especially in inclement weather in Metro Detroit.
If you need a recommendation on movers,supplies,or home improvement contractors, send me a note or sign up and I’ll send along a list of vendors I like to use. Until next time,have a great week.
