Buying a Home for the Holidays

Posted on December 12, 2014

christmas2Are you in the market to buy a home for sale in Destin? Well, why wait until next year? Here are just a few reasons to add real estate shopping to your December to-do list.

First, bargain prices. On average, home prices in December are lower than any other month and with home values rising slowly, the power still remains in the hands of the buyers.

While on the subject of prices and affordability, keep in mind that mortgage rates are significantly lower than in years past. Right now, rates are hovering over 4 percent and projected to increase up to 5 percent by the end of next year.

Do you need another reason to buy a home during the holidays? Motivated sellers. Just like buyers looking during the holidays, sellers who list are just as serious about shredding the weight of their residencies as you are serious about buying one. Let us not forget about the end of the year tax savings. Closing before December 31st is a great way to build equity and save yourself a significant amount of money.

If you are ready to start shopping, contact Brad Shoults today to begin the process of finding your perfect piece of Northwest Florida real estate.
