Age-old wisdom says that the holiday season is just not the time to sell or buy a house. Sellers don’t want people tromping through their house so close to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s.
Or so we thought.
Our friends at Zillow.com suggest this year it might not be the case. Bring ’em on, they say offering four reasons that this year could be the time to sell/buy a house during the holiday season.
- There is less competition
- Buyers are more serious
- There is faster mortgage approval (and the rates are still relatively low)
- Home prices are typically a bit lower.
