When it comes to buying any Sedona Real Estate around the holidays, it's advantage: buyer! With so many distractions between Halloween and New Year's Day, you can slide right in there and make a smart move. While others are trimming their tree or searching for the perfect pumpkin cheesecake recipe, you're off snagging the home you want. Acting during a time when others may be distracted and not actively searching is perhaps the most effective method of getting what you want. "About one million consumers will purchase a home from November to January this year, when home prices are a bit softer," said Forbes. If that number seems high -remember this "More than 85 percent of buyers who say they plan to buy a home in the next year say they will wait until the spring or summer," according to data from realtor.com
If you as a Buyer consider that those who are selling their Sedona home for Sale during the holidays are generally doing so because they have to, not because they want to, it makes sense that when you do find a house, it might be priced better than anything you'd find months later. In fact, according to The Balance, "Home prices typically drop to a 12-month low" in the month of December.
"Sellers tend to avoid the end of the year due to the short days, wintry weather and conventional wisdom that says buyers are otherwise occupied. "But those who do choose to sell at year-end are often under pressure and highly motivated to cut a deal. A seller who's looking to move a piece of Sedona Real Estate during the holidays is a seller who needs to sell, because nobody in their right mind would pick that as the most convenient time to list their property. And that's why the year-end might be a smart time to buy: Determined house-hunters can take advantage of sellers' urgency." So plan right and enlist a smart realtor to help you navigate buying a Sedona Home. Happy Buying! And for all your Sedona Real Estate needs call, text, or email me here!
