4 Tips for Buying a Home in Winter

4 Tips for Buying a Home in Winter

At the outset, it may not seem like there are specific good and bad home buying seasons. However, when you think about it carefully, it appears that every season offers certain key advantages and disadvantages to the prospective homebuyer. The winter season, specifically, is a good time to buy a home for many reasons.

If you’re looking to buy a home this winter, here are a few tips you could use:

1. Understand the advantages: There are many advantages of buying a home during the winter. The most obvious plus of buying and moving in winter is exactly because real estate wisdom says to shop during spring and summer. As a result of this popular piece of real estate advice, the low demand will work in your favour. So for the investor looking to find a good deal in the housing market, the winter can be prime time.

2. Don’t be afraid to make a lower offer: If the home has been on the market for a while, and it is still for sale in the winter, sellers could be ready to accept a lower offer, especially on an expensive home. Get your agent to do some research and find out how motivated the seller is.

3. Avail of deals and discounts: Because there are fewer buyers to compete with at this time of the year, you will be able to bargain for a good deal on the home. Moreover, real estate developers often advertise their festive deals and discounts at this time of the year, as an attempt to incentivize buyers.

4. Don’t compromise: While there are many compelling reasons to shop for a home during the winter season, it’s important to remember never to compromise. Make sure that the home meets your requirements and preferences in every way, and the builder is a reputed one. Don’t simply be in a rush—check all your requirements carefully before finalizing on your perfect home.

My son Tattva had been enrolled in the intermediate level and has been coached by the Vishwanathan Anand Chess Academy coach . Tattva has made remarkable strides and will be on his way to get his FIDE rating in November. A lot of credit goes to the mentor for his unique way of handling his students. He has been very patient while working with Tattva on his areas of improvement. In addition before the tournament the coach had voluntarily added additional classes and doubled his efforts to get a better performance out of Tattva. He has shown complete ownership which is commendable. I hope he continues to develop more and more chess players in the coming days.
