Most people think that spring is the best time to buy a home. Well, it's definitely the busiest time to buy a home. Plus that timing makes the most sense for families with school aged children. Those families wants to be settled before the school year starts.
During the fall and winter markets, there are less homes on the market for buyers to choose from. HOWEVER, there is also much less competition for those homes. And the price of homes for sale can drop a little during the fall months. The spring rush starts at the turn of the calendar and lasts thru May. So if your time table is flexible, this time of the year is a good time to buy a home.
