Pros vs cons of buying in the winter

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - The winter months in Michigan bring many considerations when it comes to buying a home. 

Some positives to buying in the winter are typical that it's a 'buyer's season', meaning home values are down and you should be able to secure a better deal for a property. Fewer buyers are out and about shopping because not many people want to move in the winter either, therefore there is less competition. 

Some factors to consider when buying in the winter are that you may not be able to see the condition of the roof or yard due to possible snow coverage. Your inspector will not be able to test the AC unit either due to the exterior temperature. Spring may come and you may find out that some trees might be dead and need to be cut down. In addition, less inventory is on the market, meaning there are less options to look at. 

These are just a few of many tips Major Homes has for you about buying. Major Homes would be honored to discuss buying a home with you today and when is a good time for you to buy.
