Historically, the fourth quarter is the slower quarter of the year and benefits the buyers.

Consider buying your next Grande Prairie home during the holidays for these eleven reasons. 

  1. People who look for a home during the holidays are more serious buyers. 
  2. Less people buy in the winter, which means less buyers and bigger savings for you on the home you find due to low demand!
  3. The listing supply increases dramatically after the holidays. You will likely pay more for a home once the holidays are over.
  4. Decorated houses helps you see the homes potential.
  5. Sellers are more emotional this time of year. If they really want to sell the home quickly you may get a great deal. 
  6. You will have more time to look at houses over the holidays compared to the traditional work week.
  7. You may have to buy before the end of the year for tax purposes.
  8. If you are transferring jobs or locations this may start in January, and you may want to be in a home before your start date.
  9. You can book your showings during the day with seasonal holidays and you may have time off work, so you can also have time with your family in the evenings.
  10. If you buy now, you can select a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year. When supply goes up.
  11. You can enter the spring market as a home owner and not worry about being outbid on a home you love when lots of buyers are out shopping.  It’s a win-win!
