There are fewer homes for sale in the winter. With the lower inventory comes less competition making it an ideal time to sell.
Winter buyers are serious buyers. They are more motivated to find the home that’s best for them and get the deal done! Not to say Spring and Summer buyers aren’t, however, they spend more time browsing the market. This is when the “lookers” typically stop looking and leave it to those serious buyers!
During the winter home showings feel warmer and more inviting. Plus, showings in the winter will show that your home is designed to handle the cold Vermont brings!
At the end of the year some buyers will obtain financial bonuses from their employer, giving them more money to spend on a home!
Many buyers who are planning to buy a home right after the new year may be getting a tax refund, that can help with the down payment.
