Happy Easter! Happy House Hunting!

If you are looking to move and are on the verge of purchasing a home, you may be wondering if there is such a thing as a good time of year to buy a house?

No doubt, the busiest time of the year for the property market is the Spring!

Traditionally, this is the time of year for 'Spring Cleaning', where many will clear out anything and everything they don’t need.  It is also the season when many people will decide to create a fresh start in their lives.  The cold winter days are almost gone, and post-Christmas debts are paid off, so it’s an ideal time to start thinking about making that move.

Lenders are still offering attractive mortgage rates for buyers, and there are government programs in North Carolina that can help first-time and 'move-up' buyers ~ so Spring can often see a huge boost in the property market:  good news for buyers – and great news for sellers who are looking for that fresh start.

So is Spring the best time for me to buy a house?

Spring is a great time for buyers. There are often more properties coming on the market, giving the potential buyer a wider range of choices and a much more varied property selection than at other times of the year. That same buyer, however, is also likely to face stiff competition from other buyers as the temperate weather brings people out and about in their home search.
With more competition around, then there is less chance of being able to snap up your ideal property for a bargain price, as buyers may hold out for a better offer, knowing that there are plenty of buyers around.

Yet, Easter Weekend may be one of the best times of year to buy a house!

Many people take this weekend off, have vacation days from work, or just choose to spend time with family and may not necessarily be searching for houses at this time. < br/> So if a buyer IS in the position to put an offer on a house over the Easter weekend, there is less chance of any competition swooping in with a better offer!
