A New Home for the Holidays

A New Home for the Holidays

There's nothing like a new home for the holidays.

Have you made your list and checked it twice? Is a new home at the top of your most wanted items? 

Unwrap the joy of a new home this holiday season! There’s no time like now to find the house with the perfect fireplace mantel to hang stockings or vaulted living room ceiling for that extra tall Christmas tree. Want a bigger backyard to make snowmen with the kids? Now is the time to find one.  

Whether it’s your very first home or your fourth, winter is a great time to purchase. Why? 

More Inventory & Less Competition

While trudging through a snowbank isn’t always ideal, you could be walking right up to your new front door!   

Less competition means you don’t have to feel rushed to immediately put an offer on the first home you tour. Step inside an open house and sip on hot chocolate while you take time finding the right home. 

Put the Home to the Test

Looking at homes in the winter gives you the chance to really put the quality of the home to the test. How well is it insulated? Do you feel a draft from any windows? Does a door need a new runner at the bottom?  

If you don’t like to shovel snow drifts, pay attention to the lack of trees and how likely an area, like the driveway, is prone to drifting. 

End of Year Tax Savings

Did you know you can file for specific tax exemptions as a homeowner? Yep! Saving money like this is just another great benefit of homebuying.  

Be sure to report these changes before the end of the calendar year. Have questions? We can help!
