If you’re house hunting during this busy holiday season you have a couple of things working to your definite advantage. First, there aren’t too many people house hunting, so with less competition you may in for a good deal. Additionally, home prices in December are typically lower than any other month, while interest rates are at their lowest. Sellers who keep their homes on the market over the holidays are usually motivated sellers who are willing to negotiate on all reasonable offers. Finally, if you close on a home before the end of the year you can deduct any mortgage interest and closing costs on your taxes. So, if you’re in the market for a new home, it might be to your advantage to make time for your hunt during this busy season.
