Best Time to Buy a New Home

December 9, 2019
Published by

When it comes to buying a home, there’s more to consider than just location, price, and the house itself. You need to consider how urgent your search is, how important it is to get the best deal, and how willing you are to go up against competition. These factors matter when you’re looking at homes in Vancouver WA or anywhere. Some issues are greater if you’re looking only at pre-owned homes, whereas if you’re considering brand new homes or even custom-built homes, then you often have more leeway. Still, here are some factors to help you decide what may be your best time to buy a home.

Inherently, when it comes to the widest selection, you’ll find the largest number of available homes during spring and summer. Sellers of pre-owned homes typically want to be out of their old home and into their new one before the next school year starts. Plus, for many sellers, they assume better weather means more people willing to come out and view homes. After all, who wants to trudge through snow and ice and freezing weather to see multiple homes.

However, spring and summer also mean more competition and typically higher prices, as there’s bound to be someone out there willing to pay more for a home, so sellers are less inclined to go below their asking price. Typically, from March through July, you’ll find the largest selection of homes, but also find the most competition, meaning you often need to act fast, which can be difficult if you’re not sure the home is absolutely right for you.

Often, winter is when you find the best deals, although the number of homes available on the market is reduced. If you’re willing to take the chance, you may find more incentivized sellers, but once again, the home may not be exactly what you wanted.

Of course, if you choose to go with a new home in one of the communities in Vancouver, such as Fisher’s Hollow or Adam’s Glen, with homes built by Pacific Lifestyle Homes, then you can find move-in-ready homes throughout the year or even choose to build on your own land. If you have time to wait, you can choose a custom-built home in any of the Pacific Lifestyle Homes communities, including Philbrook Farms or Amberglen, or you can opt for one of the homes currently under construction, offering you a chance to put your own finishing touches, while speeding up the process. There are also homes ready for immediate move-in if you find yourself unable to wait.
