Reasons to Purchase a Home in Autumn

jack-o-lanterns in autumn 1000x700With school starting up and the holidays approaching, you may think that fall isn’t the best time to purchase one of the homes in Yukon OK. Yet, some of those factors are exactly why this is such a great time to buy that brand new home. Better deals, faster service, and potential tax breaks are just some of the reasons why you should be hitting the housing market hard right now. With your paperwork in order, you could be in your new home before some of the holidays!

One of the biggest perks of purchasing a home during the fall is the lack of competition. With  fewer buyers now on the market, you don’t have to make rush decisions as you typically do during spring and summer when multiple people may be focused on the same property.

Furthermore, with fewer people actively searching for new homes, that means everyone from agents to home inspectors, lenders and others have more time in their schedule to help you. You’ll get appointments faster and potentially get work done quicker, as well.

Perhaps the greatest benefit of the lull in active buyers is that home prices often drop, typically around 2.6% lower than their average during the rest of the year. Sellers are motivated and companies specializing in new home construction may offer financial incentives in financing or other areas. In addition, if you can close on the house before the end of the year, you may be eligible for tax deductions come April.

Finally, if you do purchase a new home, you may find yourself needing new furniture, appliances, and other household goods. Fortunately, this is the time of year when many homegoods stores offer discounts on end-of-year models and holiday sales. It’s much easier to get the items you need at an affordable cost, so that you can move in without having to wait on certain items.

These are just a few of the reasons why buying one of the new homes in Yukon OK in the autumn is a sound financial approach. Plus, it can be a great way to meet your new neighbors through seasonal housewarmings and little welcome gifts.
