Buying a Home in Coastal Virginia Before the Holidays

Thinking about buying a home in coastal Virginia before the holidays hit? Now could be the ideal time to move in that direction if you've been on the fence about doing so for a while. Instead of shopping for others, consider looking for a new home that can be the place where loved ones can gather to enjoy the season together.

When looking at real estate in the fall, there are a few things to keep in mind. Weather here can be less than desirable with cold bursts of air and the occasional Nor'easter coming to town. Homes may not be in their best showing conditions, as lawns may be dormant, fallen leaves may be present and flowers aren't likely to be in bloom. Buyers could also have trouble tearing themselves away from all the fun things there are to do in this part of Virginia to go house hunting.

There are also several advantages to buying a home in coastal Virginia before the holidays. Temperatures tend to be mild, and sunny days are still a frequent occurrence. Housing inventory may be chockfull of real estate that didn't sell earlier this year, making it easy to have a wide selection. Sellers could be more motivated and open to negotiate, especially if they have one of these homes that didn't sell in the summer. There is typically less competition this time of year, as spring and summer are more popular seasons for home buying. Purchasers who close soon get the opportunity to settle in before the holidays, allowing plenty of time to decorate that new home!

If you've been waiting for the right season to go house hunting, now could be that time. Buying a home in coastal Virginia before the holidays comes with many benefits, so don't delay!
