The Autumn Home Maintenance Checklist You Need Today

Buying a home in the winter.

Winter may not seem like the ideal time to make a move, but there are some benefits of doing so.

 

The main plus with buying a home in the winter is there are less buyers in the market to buy homes so you don’t have to compete as much.

 

Also, this could mean you ***might get a little better price on a home.

 

 

That said, there are several cons to buying a home in the winter months, such as:

  • It is very hard to inspect roofing when there is snow on the roof.

  • It can be hard to inspection the condition of exterior faucets, siding, etc.

  • If there is snow covering the ground it can be hard to see the condition of landscaping.

  • AC units cannot be tested due to low temperatures.

  • There is usually less inventory to choose from on the market.
