Movers Do Not Take Off Their Shoes.

There could be, I suppose, some very affable movers who will take off their muddy, slush-covered boots each time they carry a piece of furniture in to your new home, but I’ve never met one. Not that I blame them – time is money. 20 – 30 trips in and out, removing shoes and putting them on again would take a lot of time.

People don’t want to buy in the winter because they may not be able to test out some of the home systems until spring, such as septics, or A/C, or take a good look at the roof.

People don’t want to buy in the winter because the sun sets pretty early and they may not have time to shop for homes between 10 and 3:30 – which is really all the usable daylight in a New England winter.

People don’t want to buy in the winter because they want to see what the property and landscaping looks like in the spring or summer.

People don’t want to buy in the winter because it’s cold out, and they’d rather be at home instead of trekking about with a Realtor.

The point is this. A lot of people who want to buy houses, stop shopping in the winter. That means that the people who continue to shop have less “competition” in bidding on the best houses.

The people who shop in the winter have a good chance of getting a better deal than those who hibernate until spring.

Which group do you want to be in?
